Paper Abstract

100GBASE-LR4 is an unamplified standard for Ethernet at 100 Gb/s data rate, allowing for connection distances up to 10km, while 100GBASE-ER4 calls for larger optical budget in order to reach at least 40km. We discuss these for high-speed communication between data centers, with particular emphasis on the optical amplification (SOAs) included in the transceiver modules in order to enable long-distance links.
