NeoPhotonics Samples Dual Rate 100G LR4 CFP2 Transceivers for Datacom and Telecom Applications
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
NeoPhotonics (News - Alert) Corporation (NYSE:NPTN), a leading designer and
manufacturer of photonic integrated circuits, or PIC, based modules and
subsystems for bandwidth-intensive, high speed communications networks,
today announced sample availability of its Dual Rate 100G LR4 CFP2 for
100G Client side applications. The 100G LR4 CFP2 requires less than half
the power is one half of the size of the currently shipping 100G LR4 CFP
form factor, thus making it an attractive form factor for bandwidth
hungry datacenter applications where both faceplate port density and
lower electrical power are highly desired.
NeoPhotonics' 100G LR4 CFP2 transceiver is designed to fully comply with
the IEEE (News - Alert) 802.3ba 100GBASE-LR4 standard for links up to 10km and also
supports the higher OTU4 datarate for telecom applications. The
transceiver utilizes a 4-channel PIC-based integrated transmitter based
on NeoPhotonics' proven high performance, high volume manufacturing
platform for 28G EML lasers and drivers, which are designed to meet
stringent OTU-4 optical performance requirements.
"The introduction of our second 100G Client transceiver module
underlines our commitment to the ultra-high speed segment of the
transceiver market," said Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics.
"We are pleased to support our customers with a growing portfolio of
high performance Client side transceivers based on our proven 28G EML
laser and driver technologies and to facilitate the rapidly expanding
100G market with cost-effective pluggable solutions," contined Mr.
Also at the OFC Exhibition, NeoPhotonics is showcasing its 100G Client
transceivers alongside its existing product portfolio, including
intradyne coherent receivers and narrow linewidth tunable lasers for
100G coherent communications and an extensive line of next generation
transceivers for access networks in Booth 1815 at the Optical Fiber
Communications (OFC) Exposition at the Moscone Center in San Francisco,
California, March 11-13.
