The FTBx-88200NGE module offers integrated CFP4 and QSFP+/QSFP28 interfaces in alignment with the next-gen 100G network deployment, along with an SFP+ port.

Judge's comment: "The ability to re-use modules between static and mobile chassis variants, the level of end-to-end integration, and support of new client interface types are all positives."
