Oclaro Samples 400G CFP8 PAM4-enabled Transceiver At OFC 2017


Oclaro announces sampling of its 400G CFP8 transceiver for core routers/transport applications.

The 400G CFP8 leverages Oclaro's EML laser and receiver technology as a means of delivering higher data rates between high-end routers and optical transport systems. Oclaro will be showcasing a live demonstration of the CFP8 operating with 8 lasers at 50G PAM4 at the OFC taking place between 19-23 March 2017.

"By leveraging our PAM4-compatible laser technology with our wide-receiver bandwidth capability, we've been able to quadruple bandwidth in the CFP8, while still maintaining the same size as a 100G CFP2 solution," said Yves LeMaitre, President of Oclaro's Optical Connectivity Business Unit. "This is a significant achievement that will trigger the widespread deployment of high-bandwidth 400G optical interfaces based on PAM4 that can address the bandwidth constraints faced by data centres globally today."


The Oclaro CFP8 is sampling today with volume production expected in the second half of 2017.
