Oclaro to Showcase Full Suite of 100G, 200G and 400G Products at OFC 2017

  • Industrial temperature transceivers for emerging 5G networks
  • Interoperability demonstration of QSFP28 ER4L with CFP2 transceivers for extended reach applications
  • 400G CFP8 transceivers using Oclaro’s industry leading InP laser and receiver technology
San Jose, Calif., – Oclaro, Inc. (NASDAQ: OCLR), a leading provider and innovator of optical communications solutions, today announced its OFC 2017 product line-up of components and modules designed to drive the rapid industry transition to 100G, 200G and 400G networks. Featuring the latest in 400G and tunable laser technology, the Oclaro products provide data center operators and telecom service providers with the critical components they need to move to higher speed networks ranging from 100G to 400G and beyond.
 
“Just as Oclaro drove the emergence of 100G networks, it is now also delivering a new generation of components and modules that will enable 400G and higher-speed networks,” said Adam Carter, Chief Commercial Officer at Oclaro. “Service providers and data center operators require increased faceplate density, lower power consumption and wavelength performance of the core optics in order to move to the highest speed networks. As evidenced by our OFC 2017 line-up, Oclaro is delivering the innovation needed to meet these requirements.”
 
Summary of the Demos
The Oclaro products on display will leverage the company’s proven indium phosphide technology and photonic integration expertise. Key demos will include:
  • 400G client pluggable transceiver CFP8 for 10km and 40km; 50Gbps PAM4, fully compliant to CFP8 MSA and IEEE specifications; 0 to 70deg C operation.
  • Interoperability over 40km between 100G QSFP28 and 100G CFP2 pluggable modules based on ER4 L standard.
  • Tunable SFP+ I-temp (Industrial temperature) for 5G WDM mobile front-haul networks with -40 to +85deg C operation.
