NeoPhotonics samples its first 40G transceiver module for Ethernet client-side applications

NeoPhotonics Corp of San Jose, CA, USA, a vertically integrated designer and manufacturer of photonic integrated circuit (PIC)-based modules and subsystems for bandwidth-intensive, high-speed communications networks, has announced sample availability of its first 40G transceiver module for high-speed Ethernet client-side applications.

The new pluggable 40G-LR4 CFP transceiver increases the data rate per module from 10G (in the case of XFP or SFP+ transceivers) to 40G, and is designed to meet increasing bandwidth demand in cloud and data-center applications. Compared to a traditional 10G approach, the new module transmits four times the data over single-mode fiber at distances up to 10km.

“We have provided samples to our customers as they serve the rapidly expanding 40G Ethernet market with cost-effective pluggable solutions,” says chairman & CEO Tim Jenks. “The new module complements our existing broad portfolio of line-side products, such as our Integrated Coherent Receiver (ICR) for 40G and 100G DWDM transport applications, and underlines our commitment to the ultra-high-speed segment of the transceiver market,” he adds.

The new 40G CFP module is the latest addition to the firm’s expanding high-speed transceiver portfolio, which includes a range of XFP, SFP+ and 10G EPON/XG-PON1 modules plus high-speed receivers for coherent applications. The new product is designed primarily to connect gigabit and terabit routers and switches with next-generation high-capacity transport systems. The 40G transceiver is designed to comply with the IEEE 802.3ba 40GBASE-LR4 specification and to support OTU3 rates and 44.4G for future applications.
