Lumentum showcasing portfolio at ECOC

Optical and photonic component and subsystem maker Lumentum Holdings Inc of Milpitas, CA, USA is presenting its full-spectrum of optical communications solutions at the European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC 2019) in Dublin, Ireland (23-25 September).

Coherent network transmission products

Leveraging its highly integrated indium phosphide (InP) photonic integrated circuit (PIC) technology, Lumentum provides scalable and flexible coherent optical network solutions that enable higher speeds for next-generation mobile backhaul, data-center interconnect (DCI), metro/regional, and long-haul networks.

  • Line-side coherent CFP2 modules for 100G/200G+ transmission: Lumentum is exhibiting both 100G/200G CFP2-ACO and CFP2-DCO coherent pluggable transceiver modules that leverage the firm’s experience in high-speed InP PIC devices.
  • Coherent building blocks: High-speed coherent components for 100G and beyond including integrated coherent TROSAs (transmitter-receiver optical sub-assemblies) with up to 64GBaud symbol rates, high-bandwidth integrated driver modulators, and micro and dual ITLAs (integrable tunable laser assemblies).
  • Line-side direct-detect modules for 10G/25G tunable transmission: With more than 10 years of deployments and billions of device hours in the field, Lumentum is established in tunable transmission for 10G and beyond. A broad range of tunable transmission products is on display.

TrueFlex ROADM portfolio

Lumentum efficiently and cost-effectively enables the implementation of next-generation colorless, directionless, contentionless (CDC) reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer (ROADM) solutions which support continuously increasing optical network capacity needs. The firm’s TrueFlex ROADM portfolio is said to provide improved performance, lower total cost of ownership, and future proofing of networks against evolving network patterns.

  • Next-generation TrueFlex contentionless twin 8x24 wavelength-selective switch (WSS): A winner in the Optical Subsystems category in 2019 by Lightwave Innovation Reviews and the newest addition to Lumentum’s ROADM portfolio, it enables simplified add/drop port scaling to support capacity growth in CDC networks and eliminates the need for erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) arrays in many network designs.

In addition, Lumentum is featuring the TrueFlex monitoring portfolio and the TrueFlex Micro WSS platform including the high-port-count Micro Twin 1x20 and 1x35, the Micro 1x9, the Micro Twin 1x9, and the Nano 1x9.

High-speed datacom laser chips

Lumentum is showcasing its portfolio of datacom laser chips, which are available at scale to address growing market demands. Chip products include directly modulated lasers (DMLs), electro-absorptively modulated lasers (EMLs) and vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) that enable next-generation hyperscale data centers, 5G wireless networks, and client-side access solutions.

  • DMLs: Lumentum DMLs are said to offer high reliability and use a pioneering cavity design to operate over the wide temperature ranges demanded by the latest 5G wireless systems.
  • EMLs: Lumentum PAM4-optimized EMLs enable next-generation 400G and single-lambda 100G solutions that reduce the cost per bit. The firm’s laser chips enable a wide variety of standards-compliant modules for high-speed networking.
  • VCSELs: Lumentum VCSELs for short-reach applications utilize the firm’s experience in high-volume 3D sensing applications to deliver high-performance and cost-effective solutions to data centers and can be supplied as a single bare die, or 1x4 arrays.

Telecom pump lasers

Lumentum is displaying its latest 980nm single-mode pump lasers that enable increased output power, density and efficiency, and reduced footprint and power consumption in optical amplification applications. Also on display are the firm’s latest Raman pump lasers.

  • Next-generation high-power and high-reliability 980nm pump lasers: The next-generation family of 980nm pumps offer a range of maximum output powers of 800-1000mW in a variety of form factors.

SDN open networking platform

At ECOC, Lumentum is highlighting its SDN platform, which consists of network-ready optical hardware that can rapidly accelerate time-to-market for applications such as mobile backhaul, data-center interconnects (DCI), open line systems, and ROADM mesh-networking. Configurable SDN elements on display include 8x24 and 16x24 add/drop CDC ROADMs and optical fiber monitoring solutions.

Open and disaggregated transport network live demonstration
The Open Networking Foundation (ONF) is performing a live open and disaggregated transport network (ODTN) demonstration using Lumentum’s optical network elements at Demo 2. The live demo showcases use of the ONOS SDN controller for disaggregated transport networks, covering the provisioning of data connectivity services and demonstrating advanced automatic failure recovery and resiliency, at both the data and control-plane level.

  • 23 September (2–6pm, Hibernia Rooms, Intercontinental) - ‘Reliable optical networks with ODTN, resiliency and failover in data plane and control plane’.

Workshop presentations

These speaking engagements address industry trends including the rapid growth of next-generation ROADM networks and advances in InP-based source lasers for high-speed fiber-optic applications.

  • 25 September (2:25–2:55pm, Market Focus Theater) - ‘The Many Reasons for Today’s Growth of ROADM Networks’, by chief technology officer Brandon Collings;
  • 26 September (9–10am, Hall 7, Tutorial Session SC2) - ‘High-speed InP Devices’, by Kazuhiko Naoe, director, Device Development Center.
