Oclaro Announces New 400G Products
Oclaro has announced a new suite of products that the company says is capable of driving network speeds up to 1Tb and beyond. These components and modules include 400 and 600 Gbps coherent optics, CFP2-digital coherent optical (DCO) modules, and the latest intra-data center modules employing Electro-absorption Modulator Lasers (EMLs) and PAM4 integrated circuits. The company also announced plans to expand its current portfolio of laser die to include its world-class EMLs that it says are in demand for high-speed interconnect applications today.
"Innovation through our core Indium Phosphide technology is key to delivering the higher-speed networks needed to achieve 1Tb and beyond," said
Oclaro also demonstrated a number of new products at OFC 2018 in San Diego, California (USA) 13-15 March. Demonstrations included the following:
400 Gbps components:
1.2Tb in-feed components: This included an Integrated Coherent Transmitter (ICT) operating at 600 Gbps with a 64QAM constellation at 64GBaud.
400 Gbps FR4 module: The company demonstrated a 400 Gbps QSFP56 DD module containing an
Live 100 Gbps PAM4 optical transmission: Their demonstration consisted of a 100 Gbps PAM4 optical link using one lane of
