An ongoing trend in datacom switches is to require optical transceivers to be smaller and have lower power dissipation in order to enable greater port densities. The transition from 1 GE to 10 GE was unusually slow for the Ethernet market due in part to the high cost. high power dissipation, and form factor of the optical module. The industry is now overcoming these hurdles with the transition to SFP + modules, which will enable more traditional Ethernet growth. Upcoming 40 GE and 100 GE are multilane protocols, presenting even greater challenges than 10 GE laced at its inception, potentially slowing their adoption. Leveraging SFP+ class technology such as simple EDC capabilities can lower cost and reduce module form factors, thus accelerating the transition to 40/100 GE interlace deployment.
