    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 ... View full abstract»
