Low Power Consumption Transceiver Module

Starview Low Power Transceiver
@ Green Data Center

What is LPMode Transceiver?

Many manufacturers designed their devices to support optical transceiver modules in their networks. Data Center is one of the places that consolidates most of the devices, and the biggest concern are power, cooling and space. With equipment getting more compact and higher efficiency, demand for low power consumption transceiver module is of importance. Starview has a range of low power transceiver modules to support 10Gbps – 400Gbps. Our patented technology allows Starview transceiver modules to be reprogrammed to work with any devices. Starview low power transceiver module is our Green Initiative to support Environment, Social and Governance (ESG).

Starview low power transceiver module has a LPMode (Low Power Mode) pin on the electrical plane of the connector. When the low power transceiver module is inserted into the host device, it is able to determine the maximum power consumption of the module. Whenever the power exceeds the LPMode threshold, you can configure the equipment to disable the module optical transmission power in order to conserve power consumption.

What is the difference between
Legacy Transceivers and LPMode Transceivers?

With increasing data rates, a 64 x 100Gbps network switch requires 400W of power consumption. A typical 100Gbps transceiver module requires approx. 4.5W power, and the total power consumption required for the transceiver modules is (64 x 4.5W) = 288W. Starview 100Gbps modules consumes 3.5W power and can reduce the total power consumption to (64 x 3.5W) = 224W. That is a 64W of power saving!

How to Choose the Right Transceiver for Your Network?

1. Know your fiber:

  • Multi Mode Fiber, usually orange, cyan or purple color
  • Single Mode Fiber, usually yellow color

2. Pick your wavelength

  • 850nm signals can only go around 200m
  • 1310nm signals can get up to 40km
  • 1550nm signals can exceed 40km

3. Check on network device to work on

4. Consider speed

5. Think about distance

6. Know your environment

  • Standard operating temp: 0 – 70° C / 32 – 158° F
  • Industrial operating temp: -40 – 85° C / -40 – 185° F

There is always a perfect transceiver for every networking device. Starview is your partner to provide the transceiver to meet your expectation.

Why Choose STARVIEW Transceivers?

Starview is a reliable supplier of Optical Transceiver modules for more than 10 years, with good customer track records. Starview offers a wide range of transceiver modules, and owns patent for STARPOD (Starview Programmable Optical Device) to program our modules to work in various manufacturer’s devices.

The increasing demand for data, storage and computing power have seen more Data Centres coming up all over the world. Inside these Data Centers, the network is typically a leaf and spine configuration. Every network connectivity is a pair of transceiver module. As the number of connectivity increases, the usage of transceiver modules and power consumption also increases.

Low Power Transceiver Modules are made possible with the improved design of the photonics in the transceiver module architecture. The photonics comprises the optical components for TOSA (Transmitter Optical Sub Assembly) and ROSA (Receiver Optical Sub Assembly) to eliminate the need for optical lenses and shorter transmission path. The approach of this reduction lowers the power consumption for the TOSA as well as the heat dissipation.
