NeoPhotonics demos pluggable coherent CFP2-ACO transceiver for 400/600Gbps

In booth 3017 at the Optical Fiber Communications (OFC) conference & exhibition in Los Angeles (21-23 March), NeoPhotonics Corp of San Jose, CA, USA (a vertically integrated designer and manufacturer of hybrid photonic integrated optoelectronic modules and subsystems for high-speed communications networks) is demonstrating its pluggable coherent CFP2-ACO module for 400G and beyond. The ClearLight CFP2-ACO platform is capable of achieving single-wavelength 200G, 400G and 600G transmission over data-center interconnects (DCIs) through metro/regional distances.

The ClearLight CFP2-ACO platform uses next-generation optical components based on platforms that have been proven in volume production for 100G and 200G network applications. It uses NeoPhotonics’ high-bandwidth Class 40 coherent receiver capable of 64Gbaud with 16-QAM to 64-QAM modulation. This high-bandwidth receiver maintains high sensitivity to simplify migration from 100G to 200G and 400G links. The platform also uses NeoPhotonics’ high-power, external-cavity, ultra-narrow-linewidth tunable laser with low power consumption. The ultra-narrow linewidth enables higher-order constellations with less processing requirements from the digital signal processor (DSP).

The ClearLight 64 Gbaud CFP2-ACO demonstrates the ability to scale data capacity to 400G/600G on a single wavelength while maintaining performance and link budgets in DCI or metro/regional links. The data capacity scaling optimizes the cost per bit and thus enables broad deployment of coherent transmission from short to long reaches.

With low power consumption, the ClearLight CFP2-ACO 400G/600G significantly increases faceplate density, while moving the DSP outside the module, enabling management of the heat generated by the DSP when operating at these high data rates.

“Our new ClearLight 64 Gbaud CFP2-ACO 400G/600G pluggable coherent transponder demonstrates a powerful new platform for NeoPhotonics which is capable of efficiently implementing 400G to 600G transmission networks,” says chairman & CEO Tim Jenks. “This exciting new platform is made possible by our Advanced Hybrid Photonic Integration technology utilizing our latest advances in high-bandwidth receivers and ultra-narrow-linewidth lasers in conjunction with higher-order modulation,” he adds.
