Oclaro showcasing 100G, 200G and 400G products at OFC

For the Optical Fiber Comminications Conference and Exhibition (OFC 2017) in Los Angeles (21-23 March), Oclaro Inc of San Jose, CA, USA (which provides components, modules and subsystems for optical communications) has announced its line-up of components and modules designed to drive the rapid industry transition to 100G, 200G and 400G networks. Featuring the latest in 400G and tunable laser technology, the products provide data-center operators and telecom service providers with the critical components they need to move to higher-speed networks ranging from 100G to 400G and beyond, says Oclaro.

“Just as Oclaro drove the emergence of 100G networks, it is now also delivering a new generation of components and modules that will enable 400G and higher-speed networks,” says chief commercial officer Adam Carter. “Service providers and data-center operators require increased faceplate density, lower power consumption and wavelength performance of the core optics in order to move to the highest-speed networks,” he adds. “As evidenced by our OFC 2017 line-up, Oclaro is delivering the innovation needed to meet these requirements.”

The products on display leverage Oclaro’s indium phosphide (InP) technology and photonic integration expertise. Key demonstrations include:

  • 400G client-pluggable transceiver CFP8 for 10km and 40km; 50Gbps PAM4, fully compliant to CFP8 MSA and IEEE specifications; 0-70°C operation.
  • Interoperability over 40km between 100G QSFP28 and 100G CFP2 pluggable modules based on ER4 L standard.
  • Tunable SFP+ I-temp (industrial temperature) for 5G WDM mobile front-haul networks with -40 to +85°C operation.

Oclaro is also speaking on a number of industry panels and presenting two technical papers.
