Rome, Italy – September 24, 2018 – NeoPhotonics
Corporation (NYSE: NPTN), a leading designer and manufacturer of optoelectronic
solutions for the highest speed communications networks in telecom and
datacenter applications, today announced that its suite of 64 GBaud optical
components for coherent systems are currently being used by multiple major
customers to develop systems with 600G per wavelength transport capacity. The suite consists of three critical optical
components: a 64 GBaud CDM (Coherent
Driver Modulator), plus a 64 GBaud ICR (Coherent Intradyne Receiver) and finally
an ultra-narrow linewidth tunable laser.
These components work togetherto enable customers to implement single wavelength 600G or dual wavelength 1.2T
data transmission over datacenter interconnect (DCI) distances of 80 km.
leading OEM customers have elected to use all three of these components in
their development, while additional customers have elected to use a subset of
the NeoPhotonics 64 GBaud coherent component suite. The components also support 400G over metro
distances of 400-600 km using 64 GBaud and 16 QAM or 200G over long-haul
distances of greater than 1000 km using 64 GBaud and QPSK.
components double the symbol rate over standard 100G (32 GBaud) coherent
systems. Higher symbol rates increase data
capacity while maintaining superior OSNR, spectral density and reach performance. All of
these components are available in compact form factor packages suitable for
pluggable modules and compact daughter cards.
GBaud CDM: NeoPhotonics 64 GBaud,
polarization multiplexed, quadrature coherent driver modulator (CDM) is
shipping in limited availability and features a co-packaged InP modulator with a
linear, high bandwidth, differential driver in a compact package designed to be
compliant with the anticipated OIF Implementation Agreement.
GBaud Micro-ICR: NeoPhotonics Class
40 High Bandwidth Micro-Intradyne Coherent Receiver (Micro-ICR) is in volume
production and is designed for 64 GBaud symbol rates, doubling the bandwidth of
standard 100G ICRs. The compact package is designed to be compliant with the
OIF Implementation Agreement OIF-DPC-MRX-02.0.
Profile Micro-TL: NeoPhotonics ultra-narrow
linewidth external cavity tunable laser features very low phase noise and power
consumption and has been proven in volume production. It is now configured in a
smaller, lower profile package that is compliant with the OIF Implementation
addition to these shipping products, NeoPhotonics has introduced its next
generation of coherent products which reduce the size of coherent optics approximately
in half, while featuring the same high performance required for 400G and 600G
per wavelength. The Coherent Optical
Subassembly, or COSA,
integrates NeoPhotonics 64GBaud coherent driver-modulator with its 64 Gbaud coherent
receiver in a very compact form factor.
Alongside this, NeoPhotonics introduced a “Nano”
ultra-narrow linewidth external cavity tunable laser, which again cuts the size
approximately in half, while featuring industry leading linewidth and phase
noise and with low electrical power consumption.
next generation products were demonstrated in operation at the Optical Fiber
Conference exhibition in March, both individually and incorporated into a compact
400G pluggable module.
are working closely with customers to provide a matched suite of high speed optical
components for 600G per wavelength to enhance system performance and reduce
time to market,” said Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics. “With our next generation highly integrated COSA,
operating at 64 Gbaud and beyond, and our Nano-Tunable Laser, we are working to
enable highly compact pluggable 400G modules,” continued Mr. Jenks.
will exhibit its suite of coherent components for 600G and 1.2T at the European
Conference on Optical Communications Exhibition here at the Fiera Roma in Stand
426, September 24th to 26th, along with its broad family
of products for high speed applications.
addition, at 16:10 pm on Tuesday, September 25th Dr. Winston Way,
NeoPhotonics’ CTO Systems, will present a paper entitled “Next-Generation
Coherent Pluggable Transceivers in a CDC ROADM Based Optical Network” at the ECOC
2018 Exhibition Market Focus session entitled: “Optical Network
Agility/Software Defined Networks.”
