Oclaro Selected By Ciena As Long-term Partner For 400G Coherent Network

News

Oclaro, a provider of optical communications solutions, has been selected by Ciena as a long-term partner in the development of 400G coherent networks.

Oclaro will have access to Ciena's WaveLogic Ai coherent DSP chipset, enabling it to build programmable modules supporting up to 400Gb/s with baud rates to allow more data to be transported on each wavelength. The rationale behind this is to enable Oclaro customers to transition to 400G networks in a quick and cost effective way to meet the industry's growing demand for more bandwidth.

"Our collaboration with Ciena is a significant milestone in the development of higher-speed 400G networks as it combines world-class 56 Gbaud DSP technology with Oclaro's indium phosphide transmitter, receiver and modulator technology," said Adam Carter, Chief Commercial Officer at Oclaro. "Oclaro customers will now be able to design high-capacity coherent long haul/metro systems that are both flexible in the bandwidth offered per port and cost competitive by utilising a single wavelength."

"Oclaro's deep technology expertise and high-volume success in the 100G market make them a strong partner for driving the evolution to 400G networks," said Scott McFeely, Senior Vice President of Networking Platforms at Ciena. "The combination of our leading baud rate with their proven indium phosphide technology and packaging expertise provides a quick and cost-effective path for early adopters wanting to move to these higher speed networks."

Oclaro expects to sample its first flex coherent transponders based on Ciena's WaveLogic Ai DSP chipset by the end of 2017. Featuring a single wavelength transmitter in a 5"x7" form factor, the transponder will be designed to deliver flexible bandwidth for 400G, 300G, 200G and 100G applications.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
