Overcoming the alphabet soup of form factors with 100G QSFP28

08/06/2014
When the IEEE finished the first 100G standard for Ethernet networks, the transceiver industry launched an alphabet soup of form factors. The CFP emerged first, "C" for 100, and FP for "Form factor, Pluggable." Like the early versions of 10G transceivers, the CFP was huge. When compared to the mo...
