Opnext debut multiple live demonstrations at OFC/NFOEC 2010

Opnext Inc of Eatontown, NJ, USA says it will debut multiple live demonstrations at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference & Exposition and National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (OFC/NFOEC 2010) in San Diego, CA, USA (23–25 March).

Demonstrations at the exhibition:    

  • The world’s first live demonstration of a real-time 100Gbps DWDM solution based upon a single wavelength coherent receiver supporting forward error correction code with 20% overhead.
  • A live demonstration of a CFP MSA (multi-source-agreement) 100GBASE-LR4 client side module based upon internal laser and photodiode technology (see related item). Opnext will demonstrate 100GbE data traffic running error free over 10km of single mode fiber. The 100GbE traffic will be generated by the Ixia K2 traffic generator and analyzer featuring a CFP MSA based optical interface. The TRC5E20 is available to customers for purchase.
  • Opnext will demonstrate a 43G Tunable 5x7" 300-pin transponder featuring DQPSK (Differential Quadrature Phase Shift Keying) modulation scheme. This transponder makes possible the move from discrete components to an integrated solution for up to 43G long haul line-side applications. This module, the TRV7BC0, is currently available for purchase.

Opnext will also display the first sample of a 100G line side module in the OIF MSA, 100G Long-Haul DWDM transmission module.

“This has been a year of many firsts for Opnext in the 40G and 100G space. We have demonstrated and delivered 40 GbE and 100GbE compliant client-side modules to our customer base,” said Gilles Bouchard, president and CEO, Opnext.
