The GQS-SPO400-IR4C is a 4x10G hot-pluggable optical transceiver. It enables the integration of 4 transmitters, 4 receivers and an optical MUX/DEMUX into a small form-factor package that delivers a 40Gbps data link in a compact QSFP footprint.
The optical connectivity is based on two SMF LC connectors, one for Tx and one for Rx. The Tx and Rx each consist of four 10Gb/s CWDM channels, operating at wavelengths in the 1300nm range. The 40G QSFP+ LR4 Lite transceiver is designed for applications based on the IEEE 802.3ba 40GBASE-LR4 standard of up to 2km reach.
