Compatible Coded Transceivers

Our 2-, 4-, 10-, 40-, 100-, 200-, 400- Gbps Transceivers allow you to achieve provisioning of  high-performing data networks with combined data rates of 400-, 800-Gbps and even 1.6Tbps.




Within the 400G data rate modules, the QSFP-DD became the most popular form factor compared to CFP8 and OSFP modules.

The design of QSFP-DD form factor is able to handle data rates of 200 Gbps and more. 400G QSFP-DD modules are used for the transmission of 400 Gigabit Ethernet.

Our most common transceivers:

CFP / CFP2       100-Gigabit Ethernet 39.8-103.1 Gbps
CFP                    100-Gigabit SFP 12x 1.06-10.25 Gbps (12 channels)

Advantages of “pluggable” transceivers are:

Flexible setup, fast installation, immediate adaptation to new interfaces (e.g. CWDM, DWDM, longer distances, Single Mode, Multi Mode …) and reduction of spare parts for increased cost control.

OPTIMAL CONNECTIVITY is offering top-quality transceivers with integrated diagnostics monitoring of temperature, optical input and output levels.

Vendor specific information is stored inside an EEPROM device. Writing and reading the code inside the EEPROM allows to create compatible transceivers which are seamlessly integrating into any hardware.

Compatible-Coded transceivers are correctly identified by the respective network components and providing their full functionality.
