Rural broadband providers are connecting America by optimizing resources with smart design and purchasing decisions
If your goal is to build more with less while providing your networks the simplest, no-fail connections and components, Vitex can help. Our in-house, US-based engineers provide application guidance and seasoned optical know-how so that network deployment speed and costs, mile after mile, are always manageable.
Go the (80km) distance with the lab-tested 100G ZR4
If you’re deploying a rural broadband network that must connect a distance equivalent of Spokane, WA to Moscow, ID, an underutilized, single solution for long distance data transmission is the i-temp 100G QSFP28 ZR4 transceiver. The Vitex 100G ZR4 is a practical and smart extended reach solution for 100G Ethernet: small form factor, long distance and low power consumption. Because it’s point-to-point (and USA-tested) for plug-and-play long haul transmission, the 100G QSFP28-ZR4 makes single-mode fiber (SMF) installation quick and easy.
Available in 40km, 80km and soon 100km distances, the Vitex 100G ZR4 offers an elegant point-to-point interconnect for a long haul, middle mile solution. Also available in breakout, i-temp and AOC options.

A simple, clean and cost-effective 100G upgrade solution for existing routers (hint: single lambda)
When you are using existing fiber optic infrastructure and equipment but need to ramp up to 100G, Vitex has a scalable option that beats the price and offers more flexibility than buying a new 100G line card for every router.
Use a single lambda 100G QSFP28 ZR4 DWDM PAM4 80km optical transceiver. Not only does it save over 80% in costs, the off-the-shelf Vitex ZR1 DWDM pluggable allows you to use any 100G capable router channels together. No line card, extra equipment or cabling needed.
Even when integrated into legacy broadband network equipment, the Vitex 100G QSFP ZR4 increases bandwidth with a US lab-tested extended reach up to 80km.
