VIAVI announces the most-comprehensive 100G solution for Data Center Interconnect (DCI)

September 20, 2016 — The latest software release is now available for the VIAVI CSAM 100G module, the most versatile 100G tester on the market, and now the first to support 100GE LR4, SR10, and SR4 with RS-FEC in one module.

Highlights of this release:

  • Availability of 100GE RS-FEC
  • Support of 100GE LR4, SR10, and SR4 with RS-FEC
  • Extended Reach support with ER4

CSAM now supports the full range of 100GE interfaces from SR4 up to ER4, extending support for new cost-effective optics in CFP2, CFP4, QSFP28 transceivers.

Use Cases:

  • In a data center interconnect environment, connect to either legacy (SR10) or cutting edge (SR4) 100G optical interfaces
  • Troubleshoot or pre-qualify optics by performing a self-test before placing the optical transceiver into production: CFP2, CFP4 and QSFP28 conforming to LR4, ER4, SR10 and SR4 with RS-FEC standards. Run a pre-FEC or post-FEC test with RS-FEC.
