Product Overview for the Cisco QSFP-100G-SM-SR QSFP Transceiver Module

In the rapidly evolving landscape of networking, the demand for high-speed data transmission has led to the development of advanced optical transceiver modules. One such notable innovation is the Cisco QSFP-100G-SM-SR, a 100Gbps transceiver module designed for Single-mode Fiber (SMF) networks. This article provides an in-depth exploration of the Cisco QSFP-100G-SM-SR, focusing on its key features, specifications, and applications.

Understanding QSFP Technology

The QSFP (Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable) is a compact, hot-pluggable transceiver module used for high-speed network connections. It supports data rates up to 100Gbps and is commonly utilized in data centers, telecommunications, and enterprise networking environments. The Cisco QSFP-100G-SM-SR is a specific variant designed for Single-mode Fiber applications, making it suitable for long-distance, high-bandwidth connections.

Key Features of Cisco QSFP-100G-SM-SR

  • High Data Rate (100Gbps): The Cisco QSFP-100G-SM-SR offers a blazing-fast data rate of 100Gbps, making it ideal for data-intensive applications and high-performance computing environments. This high-speed capability ensures seamless data transmission for modern networking requirements.
  • Single-mode Fiber Compatibility: Designed to work with Single-mode Fiber, this transceiver module is optimized for long-distance data transmission. Single-mode Fiber provides a single, narrow path for the light to travel, reducing signal attenuation and enabling connectivity over extended distances.
  • CWDM4 Technology: The QSFP-100G-SM-SR utilizes CWDM4 (Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing) technology. This allows for the transmission of multiple data streams over a single optical fiber by using different wavelengths. In this case, it employs four distinct wavelengths at 1310nm.
  • Duplex LC Connector: The transceiver module is equipped with a Duplex LC (Lucent Connector) optical interface. The duplex configuration facilitates bidirectional communication, enabling the simultaneous transmission and reception of data over the same fiber.
  • 2km Reach: With a reach of 2km, the QSFP-100G-SM-SR is optimized for medium to long-distance connections. This makes it suitable for applications where data needs to be transmitted over extended distances without sacrificing performance.
  • Hot-Pluggable: The hot-pluggable feature allows the transceiver module to be inserted or removed from a network device without powering it down. This enhances flexibility and scalability in network configurations, as modules can be replaced or upgraded on the fly.

  • Wavelength: Operating at a wavelength of 1310nm, the transceiver module leverages the advantages of this specific range to achieve optimal performance in Single-mode Fiber environments.
  • Data Rate: With a data rate of 100Gbps, the module meets the demands of high-bandwidth applications, including cloud computing, high-performance computing (HPC), and data center interconnects.
  • Transmission Reach: The QSFP-100G-SM-SR is designed for a reach of 2km, making it suitable for mid-range to long-distance connections commonly found in enterprise and data center networks.
  • Connector Type: The Duplex LC connector ensures a secure and reliable optical connection, promoting efficient bidirectional data transmission over the Single-mode Fiber.

Applications of Cisco QSFP-100G-SM-SR

The Cisco QSFP-100G-SM-SR finds application in various networking scenarios due to its high-speed capabilities and compatibility with Single-mode Fiber. Some notable applications include:

  • Data Centers: In data center environments where high-performance networking is crucial, the QSFP-100G-SM-SR can be deployed for interconnecting servers, switches, and storage systems.
  • Telecommunications: Telecommunication networks often require high-speed, long-distance connections. The 2km reach of the QSFP-100G-SM-SR makes it suitable for such applications, ensuring reliable data transmission.
  • Enterprise Networks: Large enterprise networks, spanning multiple locations, can benefit from the QSFP-100G-SM-SR for connecting core switches and routers, providing high-speed connectivity across the organization.
  • High-Performance Computing (HPC): HPC clusters demand ultra-fast data transfer rates for efficient collaboration and computation. The 100Gbps capability of the QSFP-100G-SM-SR caters to the high-bandwidth requirements of HPC environments.

Achieve Maximum Bandwidth

The QSFP-100G-SM-SR transceiver from Cisco is designed to provide 100Gbps Ethernet connectivity over single-mode fiber. It uses the 100GBase-CWDM4 standard, which involves transmitting data over four separate wavelength channels on a single fiber.

To achieve the maximum bandwidth of this transceiver, there are several factors to consider:

  • Fiber Type: The transceiver is designed for use with single-mode fiber, which has a smaller core diameter than multimode fiber and provides a longer maximum distance. Single-mode fiber also provides higher bandwidth and lower attenuation compared to multimode fiber.
  • Fiber Quality: The quality of the fiber plays a critical role in achieving the maximum bandwidth. The fiber should be free of any defects or bends that could cause signal loss, and the connectors must be properly terminated to ensure low insertion loss.
  • Wavelengths: The 100GBase-CWDM4 standard uses four different wavelengths to transmit data over the fiber. The transceiver must be able to transmit and receive these wavelengths with high accuracy to ensure maximum bandwidth.
  • Distance: The maximum distance over which the transceiver can provide 100Gbps connectivity depends on several factors, including fiber quality, fiber type, and the amount of optical loss in the system. The QSFP-100G-SM-SR is designed for use over distances of up to 400 meters.
  • Interference: The 100Gbps data rate of the transceiver is sensitive to any interference from other optical signals. The use of optical filters or the careful placement of transceivers can help reduce the impact of interference on the maximum bandwidth.
Revolutionizing Data Transfer in Single-mode Networks

The QSFP-100G-SM-SR Cisco 100Gbps 100GBase-CWDM4 Single-mode Transceiver is a revolutionary product that has transformed data transfer in single-mode networks. This transceiver provides a high-speed data transfer rate of 100Gbps, making it ideal for high-bandwidth applications such as big data, cloud computing, and high-definition video streaming.

The CWDM4 technology used in this transceiver allows for multiple wavelengths to be transmitted over a single fiber optic cable, effectively increasing the amount of data that can be transferred at once. This technology also provides a longer reach of up to 10 km, making it ideal for use in large-scale data centers or across long distances.

The QSFP-100G-SM-SR transceiver is also designed for easy installation and maintenance, with a pluggable form factor that allows for easy replacement of damaged or faulty transceivers without the need for a complete system overhaul.

Furthermore, the use of single-mode fiber optic cables in this transceiver allows for a lower loss of signal over longer distances compared to multi-mode fiber optic cables. This results in improved signal quality, higher reliability, and reduced signal degradation over time.
