II-VI to exhibit at OFC 2019


New products include wavelength management solutions for 5G, undersea network products and lasers for datacom transceivers

II‐VI, a company specialising in materials and optoelectronic components, has announced that it will exhibit several new products at the Optical Fibre Communication Conference and Exhibition (OFC) in San Diego, California, on March 5-7, 2019.

New products on show will include wavelength management solutions for 5G, undersea network products and lasers for datacom transceivers.

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.

5G Optical Access Networks

Twin 1x4/1x5 Edge Wavelength Selective Switch (WSS) Modules: II-VI’s new edge WSS is cost optimised 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.

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.
