The worldwide network traffic is expanding due to the rapid expansion of mobile Internet, cloud computing, big data, and other technologies. Major providers in the market have started to launch 400G and even 800G  optical transceiver modules. So, do you know the 400G CFP8 optical transceiver module? This article will take you through what CFP8 optical transceiver module is, the types available in the market, its features and benefits, and where it is applicable to use this product.

What is a 400G CFP8 Optical Transceiver Module?
400G CFP8 (Eight Channel Form Factor Pluggable) optical transceiver module is designed for use in 400 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces over single-mode fiber (SMF). It is defined by CFP MSA CFP8 and supports eight channels (8x50G) with data rates of 400Gbps. It has a small size of 40 x 102 x 9.5 mm. 


Types of 400G CFP8 Optical Transceiver Module
Generally speaking, there are four types of 400G CFP8 optical transceiver modules on the market— CFP8 FR8, CFP8 LR8, CFP SR16, and CFP DR4. The interfaces of the four CFP8 transceivers are generally specified to allow for 8 x 50Gb/s, 16 x 25Gb/s, and 4x100Gb/s modes, respectively.

Features and Benefits
●16x25G electrical interface

● Electrical and optical signaling is available using 50Gb/s or 25Gb/s components
● Good thermal and cooling management due to a larger footprint
● Low port density due to the large size of the CFP8 form factor
● Requires a larger enclosure, around the size of a CFP2

400G CFP8 optical transceiver module is used in 400G Ethernet, data centers, telecommunications networks, cloud networks, enterprise networking, etc.

400G CFP8 optical transceiver module provides Ethernet users with a dense port and high-throughput solution. It has a compact size and low power consumption.
