Oclaro expanding manufacturing capacity for 100G client-side pluggable optics

Oclaro Inc of San Jose, CA, USA (which provides components, modules and subsystems for optical communications) is increasing investment in 100G manufacturing capacity to support the growing demand for 100G client-side pluggable optics.

The increased investment has been driven by the firm’s introduction of 100G client-side interfaces in the CFP/CFP2 form factors, and will enable Oclaro to support the existing 100G form factors along with higher-density form factors that will be shipping in 2015 and beyond.

Complementing this, Oclaro has also launched its second-generation CFP2 transceiver, which has been sampling to key customers and is expected to enter volume production in fourth-quarter 2014.

“By continuing to make key investments in manufacturing capacity and new product development, Oclaro is well positioned to lead the transition from CFP to CFP2 as more customers demand the higher density, lower cost and lower power consumption enabled by CFP2 designs,” reckons chief commercial officer Adam Carter. “Our customers benefit greatly from Oclaro’s long history of delivering CFP/CFP2 solutions, which enables us to provide industry-leading quality, continued cost competiveness and product improvements for data-center 100G and service provider dual-rate applications,” he claims.

Oclaro is showcasing its complete line-up of LR4 CFP and CFP2 solutions in booth #MR7 at the European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC 2014) tradeshow in Cannes, France (22-26 September).

The new second-generation CFP2 features very high performance at OTU4 rates as a result of the firm’s in-house expertise in electro-absorption modulated laser (EML) technology. Oclaro says that EML has emerged as a critical requirement for its customers because of its superior dual-rate performance, and the firm has included this feature in its new designs to meet this demand.

Oclaro says that the new CFP2 transceiver highlights its commitment to continually improve the features and functionality of its CFP2 designs with next-generation solutions. These innovations are helping Oclaro to drive the adoption of 100G client interfaces in core applications such as switching, routing and aggregation in data centers, internet exchanges and service provider peering points, where longer-reach and high-density 100G connections are required to meet the growing bandwidth demands.
