II-VI Inc showcasing amplification products to enable high-bit-rate transponders and transceivers

In booth #735 at the Optical Fiber Communications conference & exposition (OFC 2015) in Los Angeles (24-26 March), engineering materials and optoelectronic components provider II-VI Inc of Saxonburg, PA, USA, which produces amplification solutions for next-generation optical networks, is showcasing a portfolio of amplification products to enable high-bit-rate (100, 200, 400Gbps and beyond) optical transmission.

High-bit-rate coherent transceivers at 100Gbps are routinely deployed in long-haul and ultra-long-haul optical networks, and these systems are now making their way into metro and regional optical networks. Transmission systems operating at 400Gbps are emerging, and the complex modulation schemes needed for these new systems require ultra-compact, high-performance amplification solutions, says the firm. 

"High-bit-rate transceivers and transponders require creative packaging technologies and differentiated optical components. II-VI is a vertically integrated market leader in this segment," says Dr Richard Smart, general manager of the Network Solutions Division and chief scientist, Optical Communications Group. "Our unique, ultra-compact optical amplifiers, uncooled pump lasers, passive hybrids and advanced tunable filters are key enablers of these highly compact next-generation transceivers and transponders," he adds. "We anticipated the challenges and have developed a unique set of compact tunable optical filter solutions designed for optical noise suppression," he adds.
