Ixia today announced that its higher speed Ethernet (HSE) IEEE 802.3ba-compliant test equipment was used to successfully transmit and receive Ethernet traffic at 100 Gbps through a CFP Multi-Source Agreement (MSA) compatible optical module. The HSE load module is designed to transmit and receive full line-rate 100 Gbps Ethernet traffic.

The CFP MSA is an industry standard designed to support next generation Ethernet optical transceiver interfaces for both 100 Gbps Ethernet (100G) and 40 Gbps (40G). The CFP MSA defines the form factor of a hot-swappable optical transceiver supporting 40/100 GE and uses transceiver electrical interface consisting of multiple 10 Gbps lanes.
