ProLabs stabilizes 5G wireless backhaul/midhaul & FTTx networks with new QSFP28 100G industrial temperature transceivers

IRVINE, Calif., May 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- ProLabs, a global leader in optical networking and connectivity solutions, has launched its new industrial temperature (ITEMP) QSFP28 100G transceivers, stabilizing 100G signals across temperature sensitive network links from -40C to +85C.

Networks containing high performance transceivers under constant load or subject to climate are impacted when temperatures break beyond ideal operating ranges. 5G wireless backhaul and midhaul networks spanning large distances, as well as optics in FTTx and high frequency trading networks, are especially prone to temperature related signal degradation, alarms, and loss of service.

By employing the wider temperature tolerance provided by these rugged QSFP28 transceivers, network operators can protect their 100G networks against any adverse effects caused by weather climate, or heavy usage.

"Stabilizing signals across all network elements is essential in achieving usable next-generation data rates at and beyond 100G," said Patrick Beard, Chief Technology Officer at ProLabs. "QSFP28 100G ITEMP transceivers deliver network reliability and consistency exactly where it is needed most—to key 5G wireless midhaul, backhaul, high frequency, and access network links."

ProLabs' cost-effective QSFP28 100G ITEMP transceiver solutions are interoperable in environments with switches and routers from Cisco, Arista, Fujitsu, Alcatel-Lucent Nokia, and Ciena.
