Molex Showcases QSFP-DD with Ixia
Molex in collaboration with Ixia announce a joint demonstration at the European Conference on Optical Communication.
Ixia’s K400 QSFP-DD will generate and receive 400 Gigabit Ethernet line rate traffic over Molex’s 3-meter Direct Attached Cable. Real-time analysis on K400 will showcase test results of pre-FEC per lane BER of around E-9. The superior performance of the “inherent” BER of the cable provides ample margin for the KP4 FEC to correct these errors, resulting in zero Frame Loss Ratio. It is considerably impressive over a 3-meter cable as the two companies’ innovative solutions exceed industry standard IEEE specs.
“Through strategic collaborations with industry leaders, we are providing the expertise needed to achieve the solutions required for the next-generation of high-speed, high-density networking,” said Scott Sommers, group product manager at Molex and co-chair of the QSFP-DD MSA.
“Continuing to deliver systems to execute thorough and independent performance testing of these high-speed ecosystems are critical to support advances within the market and address the needs of customers,” said Dan Symes, senior hardware architect, at Keysight’s Ixia Solutions Group and QSFP-DD MSA contributor.
