CIVCOM launches DSP-based coherent 100G CFP and single carrier 200G pluggable transponders

In booth 3448 at the Optical Fiber Communication (OFC 2014) conference & exposition in San Francisco (11-13 March), CIVCOM Devices & Systems Ltd of Petach Tikva, Israel (a subsidiary of optical transmission system maker Padtec S/A of Campinas–Sao Paulo, Brazil that provides high-end DWDM tunable transponders) is launching its next-generation product line for high-speed communication networks.

CIVCOM’s coherent 100Gbps CFP transponder is claimed to be among the first modules on the market to use the DP-16QAM modulation format, enabling the industry’s lowest power consumption and best spectral efficiency for metro applications up to 600km.

CIVCOM has also launched a single carrier 200G transponder in a dual CFP pluggable module based on the DP-16QAM modulation format with a unique slim single-slot design offering what is claimed to be the best cost-per-bit on the market.

Both transponders are the first in CIVCOM’s new line of products based on a line of digital signal processors (DSPs). The firm says that the products offer an optimized solution for each of the network segments from metro to ultra-long-haul and sub-marine applications, providing equipment vendors with differentiators such as multiple modulation schemes together with what is claimed to be superior optical signal-to-noise ratio (OSNR) tolerance and the highest chromatic dispersion tolerance on the market.

“CIVCOM is focused on the high-speed optical market, targeting equipment vendors who rely on DSP-based modules,” says CEO Gabby Shpirer. “Our diverse product portfolio enables CIVCOM's customers to provide a competitive end-to-end solution.”
