ADVA unveils MicroMux QSFP28 adapter for data center interconnect

ADVA Optical Networking used OFC 2016 in Anaheim, CA, last week to introduce the MicroMux module for its FSP 3000 CloudConnect line of optical transport systems. The module is an active QSFP28 adapter that converts 100 Gigabit Ethernet (100GbE) client ports into either 10x10GbE ports or 2x40GbE ports. The MicroMux is designed to provide additional flexibility for data center interconnect (DCI).

ADVA Optical Networking used OFC 2016 in Anaheim, CA, last week to introduce the MicroMux module for its FSP 3000 CloudConnect line of optical transport systems. The module is an active QSFP28 adapter that converts 100 Gigabit Ethernet (100GbE) client ports into either 10x10GbE ports or 2x40GbE ports. The MicroMux is designed to provide additional flexibility for data center interconnect (DCI).

The ADVA MicroMux module enables data center network operators to connect traffic from lower-speed ports into CloudConnect systems' 100-Gbps interfaces. The module is available in both single-mode and multimode fiber configurations to match the network's distance requirements. Thus, the MicroMux module can support transport over short reach, intermediate reach (40GbE), and long reach (10GbE) links.

It also enables operators to mix client ports. Internet content providers and communications services providers can mix 10GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE clients into the ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect's single 400-Gbps line card without any footprint increase. The module also can aggregate asynchronously or independently clocked 10GbE and 40GbE traffic.
