Anritsu and Sumitomo Electric to Conduct Joint Demonstration of Optical Module Technology During OFC

LOS ANGELES, Mar. 6 - Anritsu Company (OFC booth #1710) and Sumitomo Electric Industries (SEI) announce that the two companies will be conducting a joint demonstration on 40 Gb/s serial CFP-FR optical module technology for high-speed optical networks in Sumitomo’s booth (#1624) during OFC 2012.

In the demonstration, the MD1260A 40/100G Ethernet Analyzer will provide advanced test functions at 40/43 Gb/s transmission rates to show the error-free performance of the SCF0420FR series optical transceiver module from SEI when transmitting and receiving at full rate.

“OFC has always provided the forum for the next-generation of optical technology to be shown and discussed. We are helping to continue that tradition by participating in the demonstration with SEI, which will highlight the performance necessary for Next Generation Networks (NGNs),” said Wade Hulon, General Manager and Vice President, Anritsu Company. “Our MD1260A is used to assure the quality of high-speed networks forming the foundation of next-generation applications for cloud computing, which makes it a perfect solution in a demonstration such as the one SEI is conducting.”

“SEDU is committed to developing the products necessary to meet the requirements of high-bandwidth, high-speed optical networks. Anritsu shares that commitment and its MD1260A is an excellent test solution to ensure the performance of our optical module at OFC,” said Kaz Tanida, Executive Vice President.

The all-in-one portable MD1260A 40/100G Ethernet Analyzer supports the latest high-speed transmission technologies, such as 40/100 GbE, OTU3, and OTU4. It is ideal for manufacturing inspection of transmission equipment supporting 40/100GbE, as well as for installing and commissioning 40/100GbE networks. The SCF0420FR is a CFP optical transceiver module with a hot pluggable form factor designed for high-speed optical networking applications. It converts 4-lane, 10.3125 Gb/s electrical input data streams to a 41.25 Gb/s serial optical output signal, and a 41.25 Gb/s optical input signal to 4-lane, 10.3125 Gb/s electrical data streams. The high performance DFB-EML transmitter and high sensitivity PIN receiver provide excellent performance for 40GbE applications, as well as SONET/SDH and OTN VSR applications up to 2 km.
