100G transponders are a new technology segment for ProLabs, and the company sees the introduction of the EON-121 as an important landmark. According to ProLabs, the 100G transponder's small form factor will enable it to address growing customer demands for connectivity and bandwidth requirements across a variety of applications.

The transponder's compact form reduces associated rack space costs in data centers. OFC 2018 attendees can learn more about ProLabs technology, including the EON-121transponder line, by visiting Booth 1618.
