New Products Showcase:


Wavelength Management Solutions for 5G Optical Access Networks:

·         Twin 1x4/1x5 Edge Wavelength Selective Switch (WSS) Modules: II-VI’s new edge WSS is cost optimized to meet the 100 GHz fixed grid and low port count requirements for reconfigurable wireless back-haul networks.

·         O/E-band Interleavers: II-VI’s new interleavers leverage the vertical integration of crystal growth, precision surfacing, advanced coatings and micro assemblies to achieve a cost effective and compact solution for front-haul and back-haul networks.

·         Wideband Wavelength Division Multiplexer (WDM) Filters: II-VI’s wideband filters feature a 3 dB bandwidth of 75 GHz that enables low-cost transceivers, with loose wavelength tolerances, to be deployed in cost-sensitive front-haul and back-haul networks. 


Products for Undersea Networks:

·         800 mW High Reliability Pump Lasers: II-VI’s undersea pump lasers achieve the highest commercially available output power of 800 mW, with record-high electrical-to-optical conversion efficiency, enabling a significantly lower cost per bit of undersea transmission.

·         Wavelength Selective Switch (WSS) Modules: The ultra-high reliability of II-VI’s liquid crystal based WSS modules has been demonstrated with more than a decade of high volume deployments in terrestrial networks. II-VI’s liquid crystal technology enables low port count WSS modules to be deployed at branching points in undersea networks. 


Lasers for Datacom Transceivers:

·         VCSEL Arrays for 400 GbE:  II-VI’s 8-element VCSEL arrays can be modulated at 56 Gb/s using 4-level pulse amplitude modulation (PAM4) to achieve a combined 400 Gb/s over short reach multimode links. 


Field Test Instruments:

·         Handheld Optical Time Domain Reflector (OTDR) and Optical Channel Monitor (OCM): II-VI’s new handheld test instruments are small, rugged and lightweight. They display relevant and actionable network diagnostics in real time on a smartphone, without the need for complex tools.
