Luxtera Debuts Duplex 100G-CWDM2 Optical Transceiver Module At OFC 2017


Leveraging Luxtera's latest silicon photonics chipset, the LUX45202 optical transceiver was developed to target 100G buildouts for cloud, enterprise, and high performance computing end users.

Luxtera announces the sampling of its 100G-CWDM2 QSFP optical transceiver module at OFC 2017. The LUX45202 aims to offer customers superior performance and reliability at a price point with the aim to position itself as a leading 100G duplex solution on the market.

"Cisco is always looking for the best possible optics for use in its platforms, and silicon photonics has long been seen as a critical element for 100G data centre systems," said Bill Gartner, VP and GM at Cisco. "Cisco is excited to see Luxtera delivering high-density, low-cost 100G data centre solutions offering disruptive opportunities for our cloud and enterprise customers."


"Innovation is what drives us at Luxtera. We were the first company to deliver a silicon photonic transceiver to the market. Now, we are proud to continue our silicon photonics industry leadership by being the first to announce a 100G-CWDM2 duplex QSFP optical module solution," said Greg Young, President and CEO of Luxtera. "Not only does this product provide a competitive solution for 100G networking today, but by successfully integrating wave-division multiplexing and PAM-4 modulation into our silicon photonics chipset it puts into practice key technical developments that will drive Luxtera towards 400G optics and beyond."
