JDSU adds 40/100G modulators and receivers

At this week’s Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition and the National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (OFC/NFOEC 2011) in Los Angeles (8–10 March), optoelectronic chip and module maker JDSU of Milpitas, CA, USA has launched new 40G and 100G optical components which it says provide a cost-effective solution for the high-speed data transmission requirements of network equipment manufacturers (NEMs).

“This is the latest step in the continuous expansion of our transmission components portfolio,” says Tom Fawcett, JDSU’s senior director of transmission products. “These new additions allow us to work collaboratively with our customers as they are developing new solutions to meet the explosive demand for bandwidth,” he adds.

The latest offerings from JDSU’s transmission components portfolio include:

  • 40G QPMZ modulators supporting DP-QPSK coherent detection;
  • 40G coherent receivers supporting DP-QPSK coherent detection;
  • 40G DDMZ modulators supporting DPSK direct detection;
  • 40G DPMZ modulators supporting RZ-DQPSK direct detection;
  • 100G QPMZ modulators supporting DP-QPSK coherent detection; and
  • 100G coherent receivers supporting DP-QPSK coherent detection.

JDSU says that its ability to leverage in-house fabrication capabilities in indium phosphide, planar lightwave circuits (PLCs) and lithium niobate materials enables high-performance and cost-competitive component solutions across these various data formats and data rates. This in turn allows service providers to deploy 40G and 100G optical links in a cost-effective manner wherever increased bandwidth is required in the network, the firm adds.

The new modulators and receivers further expand JDSU’s broad optical portfolio for high-speed transmission, which currently provides solutions for 10G, 40G and 100G client and line-side applications.

The new products will be on display in booth 1401 at OFC/NFOEC.
