NOKIA (Alcatel) 100G Optics compatible portfolio – entire 100G range including NOKIA QSFP28, CFP, CFP2 and CFP4 compatibles to build networks efficiently and with ease!

NOKIA 100G Optics Compatibles

Our compatible NOKIA (Alcatel-Lucent) 100G Optics selection covers the most common form factors, including Nokia QSFP28, CFP, CFP2 and CFP4. It is worth mentioning that we can provide a broader range of NOKIA 100G optics compatibles than those listed in the NOKIA OEM selection, for example products such as the ZR4 (80km), ZR4+ (100km), 100G BIDI (Single Fiber) PAM4 10km A and B side and others. Without a doubt, NOKIA QSFP28 transceivers have emerged as the most popular form factor from NOKIA (Alcatel-Lucent) 100G optics range. Here we cover compatible transceivers for NOKIA router series such as 7750, 7705, 7210, as well as Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise series (OmniSwitch 6900) and 1830 Photonic Service Switch series. As here we cover various compatible NOKIA (Alcatel-Lucent) series product part numbers have different taxonomies such as 3HE, 3AL or OmniSwitch Alcatel-Lucent enterprise line. For smooth compatibility be sure to check NOKIA (Alcatel-Lucent) datasheets to pick suitable 100G products for your equipment.

The NOKIA CFP and CFP2, both form factors of the first generation of 100G optics, are becoming increasingly scarce. However, we still see a number of Nokia (Alcatel-Lucent) 100G switches and Alcatel (Nokia) 100G routers in operation that include 100G line cards with CFP and CFP2 ports. Our Nokia (Alcatel-Lucent) 100G optics alternatives and substitutions provide a wide range of high-density and low-power 100 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity options suitable for use in data centers, high-performance computing networks, enterprise core and distribution layers, and service provider applications. Our compatible Nokia 100G Optics collection is well known for its exceptional quality and cost-effectiveness, allowing our customers all over the world to deploy cutting-edge networks. Our NOKIA (Alcatel-Lucent) 100G compatible optics are fully compliant with industry standards and can be used on all mainstream NOKIA (Alcatel) platforms. We have accumulated extensive knowledge and experience in the area of custom-encoded firmware for our offered counterparts in order to ensure that our Nokia (Alcatel-Lucent) 100G transceiver portfolio functions in the same manner as OEM parts.

NOKIA QSFP28 100G Modules

The most popular NOKIA 100G optics are available in our NOKIA QSFP28 compatible transceiver lineup. The much-desired 100G ZR4 80 km, 100G ZR4+ 100 km, BIDI 100G LR1/ER1 and 100G DWDM QSFP28 versions are not listed here, but they are also available and can be NOKIA (Alcatel-Lucent) compatible! Our compatible transceivers enable our customers to enjoy cost-effective solutions for remote site connectivity at a 100G data rate, as well as a unique opportunity to broaden their options when compared to NOKIA (Alcatel-Lucent) OEM transceivers. Our NOKIA QSFP28 compatible transceiver lineup includes custom-encoded firmware that allows them to work on all major NOKIA (Alcatel-Lucent) 100G switches and routers.

Our NOKIA (Alcatel-Lucent) 100G QSFP28 transceivers are fully compliant with industry standards (QSFP28 MSA) and interoperable with other IEEE-compliant 100GBASE interfaces. Here we cover compatible modules for Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise series (Omniswitch) as well as for Nokia router, switch and transport platforms.

NOKIA CFP 100G Modules

Our NOKIA CFP compatibles are based on the first generation 100G transceiver modules and their architecture is based on 10 lanes of 10 Gbit/s on the electrical interface. We have segmented these NOKIA CFP modules in 3 parts, LR4 for interconnection up to 10km, ER4 up to 40km and SR10 for Short Range connections up to 150 meters over Multimode Fiber. Nokia CFP SR10 version uses 10 parallel lanes at 850 nm over multi-mode optical cable, but it’s LR4 and ER4 versions feature a built-in gear-box, transforming 10 lanes of 10 Gbit/s on the electrical interface to 4 lanes of optical 25 Gbit/s LAN WDM signal for transmission over SMF fiber. Our NOKIA CFP compatible version can be considered a legacy technology as it’s been replaced with the newer and more popular NOKIA QSFP28 transceiver compatible range, but we keep this NOKIA CFP alternative in our portfolio as there are still a lot of in-service installations of CFP port line cards all over the world.

NOKIA CFP2 100G compatibles

Our CFP2 NOKIA compatible versions include two long-range transceivers devoted to 100 Gigabit Ethernet connection options and ER4 40km module. These connectivity options can be used for data center networking, corporate core aggregation, and service provider transport applications. These CFP2 NOKIA compatibles are capable of supporting 100GBASE Ethernet as well as OTU4 rates. All NOKIA CFP2 compatible versions are based on CFP2 MSA Hardware Specification 1.0 with modifications and related 100G Ethernet and OTU standards.

NOKIA(Alcatel) CFP4 100G Transceivers

Our CFP4 Alcatel-Lucent compatible versions include two long-range transceivers devoted to Dual Rate 100 Gigabit Ethernet and OTU4 connection options which are mostly used in ALCATEL-LUCENT 7750 series routers. These connectivity options can be used for data center networking, corporate core aggregation, and service provider transport applications.
