Sumitomo Electric Showcases Coherent Solutions at OFC

Helps Carriers Maximize Fiber Capacity

OFC, Anaheim, CA – Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd., a leading global provider of advanced optical solutions, will showcase its portfolio of coherent devices for metro and long-haul applications.

Service providers have adopted coherent transceivers for their 100 G DWDM backbone applications to achieve higher capacity and longer fiber reach. As telecommunications companies struggle with operational scale, coherent channels allow multiple carriers to be closely grouped to achieve high spectral efficiency as well as extensive performance monitoring capabilities that enable easy installation and network management. These benefits help service providers meet bandwidth demand while reducing the total cost of ownership.  With their superior optical performance and ease of use, coherent offerings are also very attractive for the emerging 100 G metro market. 

Sumitomo Electric’s coherent portfolio includes:
  • Micro-ITLA
  • 100 G/200 G integrated coherent receiver
  • Internal process technologies for vertically integrated solutions
Sumitomo Electric coherent solutions for long haul and the emerging 100 G metro market have superior optical performance and feature low power consumption, high efficiency, and space-saving compact packages.
