Product Review

The Arista QSFP-100G-DZ2-38 supports a data rate of 100 Gb/s with a DWDM wavelength, ensuring high-speed data transmission over single-mode fiber (SMF), suitable for long-distance networking needs. It features a Duplex LC connector type, which is widely compatible with existing network infrastructure, but the reliance on DWDM may require additional investment in compatible equipment for some setups. The inclusion of a pull tab facilitates easier handling and installation, minimizing the risk of damage during network upgrades or maintenance.


The Arista QSFP-100G-DZ2-38 module is designed for high-speed networking applications, providing a significant leap in data transmission capabilities with a 100 Gb/s data rate. This transceiver module is engineered to meet the demands of modern data centers and high-performance computing environments, ensuring efficient and reliable data communication over long distances. This module adopts the QSFP form factor, aligning with the widespread industry standards for high-density and high-speed networking solutions. The compact size of the QSFP package allows for greater port density on networking equipment, making it an ideal choice for environments where space and power efficiency are critical. The Arista QSFP-100G-DZ2-38 is equipped with a Duplex LC connector, ensuring compatibility with standard networking equipment and providing a secure and stable connection for data transmission. This type of connector is widely used in the industry for its reliability and ease of use, facilitating quick and simple installation and maintenance processes. Designed to operate over Single-Mode Fiber (SMF), this module is capable of transmitting data over long distances without significant signal degradation. SMF is preferred for long-distance communication due to its narrow diameter, which allows the signal to travel further with less loss compared to Multi-Mode Fiber. This makes the QSFP-100G-DZ2-38 an excellent choice for applications requiring extended reach, such as between data centers or within large campus networks. The module features Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology, which enables the transmission of multiple data streams over a single fiber by using different wavelengths (or colors) of light. This technology significantly increases the bandwidth capacity of the fiber, allowing for the efficient utilization of existing fiber infrastructure and reducing the need for additional fibers. Key specifications include: -
  • Data rate of 100 Gb/s, supporting high-throughput applications and reducing bottlenecks in data transmission.
  • Use of SMF, enabling long-distance communication with minimal signal loss.
  • Incorporation of a pull tab, facilitating easy and safe module removal and insertion, enhancing the user experience and reducing the risk of damage during handling.
The DWDM technology employed in the Arista QSFP-100G-DZ2-38 allows for a highly scalable and flexible networking solution, capable of meeting the growing demands for bandwidth without the need for extensive new fiber installations. This makes it an adaptable choice for evolving network architectures and future-proofing investments in networking infrastructure. Overall, the Arista QSFP-100G-DZ2-38 transceiver module embodies a fusion of high-speed data transmission, long-distance reach, and efficient wavelength utilization, packaged in a compact and efficient form factor. Its design and technical specifications make it a versatile and reliable solution for a wide range of networking applications, from data centers to metropolitan area networks.
