Oclaro to demo interoperability between 100G QSFP28 CLR4/CWDM4 and LR4 and ER4-Lite CFP, CFP2 and CFP4 transceivers

Oclaro Inc of San Jose, CA, USA (which provides components, modules and subsystems for optical communications) says that - in booth #536 at the European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC 2015) in Valencia, Spain (27 September - 1 October) – it is giving 100G and 400G product demonstrations showcasing how its vertically integrated product lines deliver the higher speeds, lower power dissipation and smaller form factors that network and data-center operators need to provide more bandwidth without significantly expanding footprint, cost and power consumption.

"Our ECOC demonstrations highlight Oclaro's continued ability to provide leading-edge optical components that help increase network bandwidth and enable next-generation applications such as streaming video and cloud computing," says chief commercial officer Adam Carter. "Oclaro has been the leading transceiver supplier for 100G single-mode applications based on its indium phosphide [InP] laser and modulator technology, and we are expanding on that leadership now that data centers are getting ready for 100G deployments," he claims.

Regarding 100G client-side technology, Oclaro is showcasing a live interoperability demonstration between its LR4 and ER4-Lite line-up of CFP, CFP2 and CFP4 transceivers and its new 100G QSFP28 CWDM4/CLR4 transceiver based on its directly modulated laser (DML) and electro-absorption modulated laser (EML) technology.

Line-side product demonstrations

Oclaro is also showcasing several products from its vertically integrated DWDM product portfolio, including:

  • a new 400G lithium niobate modulator for next-generation DWDM networks;
  • analog coherent CFP2-ACO transceiver for metro and data-center interconnect applications at 100G and 200G; and
  • micro-ITLA and dual micro-ITLA lasers with grid-less wavelength tuning for coherent applications from 100G to 400G. 

Additional participation by Oclaro at ECOC
Oclaro has contributed to the following papers being presented at ECOC on 30 September:

  • 'Facet-free Surface-emitting 1.3μm DFB Laser' (contributors include Oclaro's Tsukuru Ohtoshi, Kouji Nakahara, Akira Nakanishi, Kazuhiko Naoe and Shigehisa Tanaka); and
  • 'Uncooled (25-50ºC) Operation of Self-Seeded RSOA for Low-Cost Colorless WDM-PON Transmitter' (contributors include Oclaro's Shunya Yamauchi and Masaru Mukaikubo).

Also, Oclaro's director of strategic marketing Robert Blum is speaking on the Market Focus panel 'Photonic Integration in Indium Phosphide for Metro and Data Center Interconnects'.
