Lumentum Collaborates On Mobile Optical Pluggables Paper

News

Expands tunable transmission module technology into the 5G market

Lumentum, a developer of optical and photonic products, has participated in a joint technical paper on Mobile Optical Pluggables (MOPA) with system providers Ericsson and Nokia and other industry participants.

"As high-capacity and cost-effective optical solutions are critical to 5G and next-generation mobile networks, we are excited to participate in defining industry requirements which will both help the industry advance and increase the market opportunities for our highly differentiated full-band tunable pluggable transceiver platform," said Justin Abbott, Lumentum director of product line management, transmission.

"Lumentum has a long history of innovation in high-speed full-band tunable pluggable transceivers, pioneering the category more than a decade ago. We are well-positioned to meet customer needs in 5G and next-generation mobile networks."

Driven by the broad global 5G buildouts, MOPA aims to accomplish a common view and understanding in the industry regarding which optical solutions are required for 5G transport, such as fronthaul and backhaul. This serves to improve the current challenge for operators, system vendors, and optical pluggable suppliers to make the right technology choices and focus on the most relevant needs. MOPA benefits the ecosystem to ensure timely, cost-efficient, and optimized architectures.

For the first time as a joint industry initiative, the MOPA paper describes common optical requirements for mobile transport networks. It includes Mobile Optical Blueprints, which are network solution descriptions documenting use cases with the optical pluggable and passive optical components, such as wavelength division multiplexing and optical power splitter implementing these use cases, with high-level optical requirements.



AngelTech Live III: Watch the virtual event ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Live III was broadcast live on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and features online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

The event covered the whole spectrum of key developments affecting the compound semiconductor industry. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. This was considered a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

With 3 interactive sessions over 1 day AngelTech Live III proved to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
