100G Transceivers From ProLabs


Did you know that that the first 10G products are 15 years old! That’s a little surprising isn't it! So here we are in 2017 and the need for speed is increasing every day and demand is overtaking technology. Telecom carriers and independent vendor assessment reports estimate 50% to 60% traffic growth year over year, resulting in 100G connections growing not only in the core, but towards the network edge. According to Cisco’s VNI forecast, by 2020, 82% of all IP traffic will be video and the global numbers for internet user will hit 4.1 billion.

With these figures in mind, you are already doing more with less and your network demands are becoming more complex. Websites and critical applications are requiring more stability and higher connectivity, and more pressure is on gaining an increase in higher-bandwidth speeds.
That’s where 100G comes in, by increasing bandwidth, minimising aggregation and significantly improving overall efficiency. The bandwidth explosion is forcing companies to continue to grow in scale, 100G offers the bandwidth speeds and efficiency necessary to support this growing demand. Pluggable transceivers have become standard for network equipment and this continues with 100G. Pluggable transceivers give customers the ability to manage their expense when needed and flexibility with options such as distance or multiplexing to meet the needs of each individual circuit. Customers also have a choice in suppliers and have the option to work with a partner who offers solutions which will work seamlessly with all their network equipment, providing innovations to improve network efficiency.

Now Is the Time for 100G

100G connectivity is maturing at a rapid pace. Advances in transceiver technology are producing lower priced network gear. The evolution to a QSFP28 form factor offers a more energy-efficient, cost space efficient platform for 100G deployments. The economies of scale have resulted in a perfect storm where network equipment providers are offering 100G gear at price points that make sense for today’s tight capital budgets.
That’s where for the most part the 100G market is now, but time never stands still with technology and innovation is constantly evolving. Already, the IEEE are studying 50G, 200G and Next-Gen 100G Ethernet and a 400GE standard is already being defined in IEEE P802.3bs.

ProLabs brings the expertise in being responsive and offering high quality, reliable network products to the 100G segment. ProLabs stands behind the 100G transceivers with a 100% lifetime warranty, offering compatibility with leading 100G network equipment providers and offering personal support and service for all your networks elements.
