Avago's 25G VCSEL shipments surpass 1 million channels

Avago Technologies Ltd (a designer and supplier of III-V-based analog components for communications, industrial and consumer applications) says it has now shipped more than 1 million channels of 25G vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) to the enterprise optical networking market.

Leveraging the firm's broad portfolio of VCSEL intellectual properties, the 25G VCSEL technology drives a wide range of high-performance fiber-optic transceiver modules for next-generation Ethernet, Infiniband and high-performance computing (HPC) applications.

"Given the growing demands of optical links within the data center, there is a pressing need for new high-speed VCSEL solutions to support high data bandwidth requirements," says Philip Gadd, senior VP & general manager of Avago's Fiber Optics Product Division. "25G VCSEL technology will be a cornerstone for next-generation short-reach optical networking protocols and applications such as Ethernet, Infiniband, Fiber Channel, PCIe, and SAS. With a proven 25G VCSEL technology and a broad portfolio of high-speed fiber-optic solutions, Avago is well positioned to serve a variety of customers and applications," he believes.  

"This is an exciting milestone for VCSEL technology, the workhorse of optical datacom for many years," comments Dale Murray, principal analyst for LightCounting Market Research. "While we have increased our projections for 25G VCSEL-based modules in the latest market forecast report, it comes as a pleasant revelation that Avago has already shipped a million 25G channels. This bodes well for the long-term future of VCSELs," he adds.  

Avago is showcasing new 25G and 4x25G fiber-optic transceiver solutions in booth 1567 at the Optical Fiber Communication conference & exposition (OFC 2015) in Los Angeles (24-26 March).
