100G Green Transceivers require 30% less power to operate

The ProLabs line of Green Transceivers utilises new technologies which result in 30% less power consumed than a typical transceiver, all the while offering the same performance.  The technology used is Silicon Optical Bench, SiOB, which relies on free-space optical interconnect technology eliminating the need for the optical lens. This results in maximum power consumption of 2.5W and typical of […] Read more…
