Mellanox is showcasing its LinkX cables and transceivers, with ConnectX adapters and Ethernet and InfiniBand switches at the September CIOE and ECOC trade shows. ECOC and CIOE are the two biggest interconnect events of the year besides the Optical Fiber Conference (OFC) in March.
CIOE: China International Opto-electronics Expo, Shenzhen, China Sept 6-9
ECOC: European Convention on Optical Communication, Gothenburg, Sweden, Sept 18-20
100G SR4 CPRI transceiver: wireless front haul protocol, multi-mode transceiver with an extended temperature rating of -10C-+75C and announcing we are entering volume production. With trials beginning in China and around the world this year, and with full deployments estimated to begin in 2019, this new transceiver is suitable for short-reach outside plant optical transmission between remote radio head (RRH) and base band units (BBU).
The CPRI transceiver is targeted at the next generation 5G wireless infrastructure build out and the potential unit volumes are staggering. 5G will enable ~10Gb/s to your cell phone, virtual reality, IOT, and 4K video – four times the resolution of your HDTV today.
Mellanox/Accelink partnership: Using our 100G PSM4 Silicon Photonics optical engine, Accelink will to build 1550nm PSM4 transceivers. Accelink is a leading Chinese opto-electronics components supplier with a one of the most comprehensive end-to-end product lines and one-stop solutions in the industry.
The 1550nm PSM4 relationship will create multiple industry sources for PSM4 transceivers based on Mellanox’s Silicon Photonics optical engine and transceiver ICs.
