Techniques are described herein for implementing optical peaking on top of a selective mode launch technique, thereby providing extended reach support on multimode fiber links. Although this document describes the successful implementation of this solution at 25G, this solution is applicable to all bit rates whenever the link performances are affected by system bandwidth limitations. In this practical implementation, this launch solution for 25G Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser (VCSEL) transceivers leverages optical peaking on top of a selective mode launch technique to ensure 300m/400m support over OM3/OM4 optical fibers and therefore smoothless transition from 10G to 25G applications.
