The future of optical networking
We are excited to be among the first Internet Exchange operators to introduce the cutting-edge 100G LR technology. This will help our customers to stay ahead of the curve and ensure their networks are ready to handle the demands of the future.
Both the existing 100G LR4 and the new 100G LR are types of fiber optic transceivers that can transmit data at a speed of 100 Gbps. The difference between the two lies in the type of modulation and number of lasers used.
100G LR4 uses four lasers, each carrying a signal of 25 Gbps, and uses wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) technology to combine these signals into a single 100 Gbps stream. The new technology 100G LR requires only a single laser and uses pulse amplitude modulation (PAM4) to transmit data at 100 Gbps.
