ColorChip’s 2km CWDM4 and 10km 4WDM transceivers to be showcased in a collaborative demo in SuperComputing 2016 exhibition 

SALT LAKE CITYNovember 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ —

ColorChip Ltd. , a leader in hyper-scale pluggable optical transceivers for datacenters and HPCs, participates in a collaborative demonstration of a massive computing grid based on intelligent Software Defined Network exchanges supporting  the global research institution community. ColorChip’s 100G QSFP28 2km CWDM4/CLR4 and 10km 4WDM transceivers will be demonstrated in Caltech’s booth #2537 on November 15th-17th during SuperComputing 2016 Exhibition in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.

ColorChip’s 100G 2km and 10Km pluggable transceivers are characterized by a high density QSFP28 package, low power consumption (~2.5W) and robust performance. ColorChip’s transceivers are based on an innovative hybrid optical engine named SystemOnGlass™,featuring nested multiplexing, low optical losses, and high coupling efficiencies. The 100G 2km/10Km transceiver family leverages ColorChip’s core strengths of optical head to PCB integration, as well as volume manufacturing efficiencies achieved by the company’s unique industrialized optics production approach.

The 100Gbps 2km CWDM4/CLR4 and 10km 4WDM transceivers are in full production and available in volume.

Demonstration at SuperComputing 2016

Azher Mughal of CalTech stated that “The Caltech group and its partners believe that optimization of large scientific data flows can be successfully achieved by using intelligent software defined networks and high speed connectivity. ColorChip has always remained at the forefront of innovative optical solutions. Using their CWDM4/4WDM optics in various 100GE SDN switches at Caltech and at the SC16 conference, the group believes to handle ExaScale performance across the showfloor and WAN.”

The demonstration will take place in Caltech’s booth (#2537) at the Salt Palace Convention Center, Salt Lake City, Utah.
