Avago's 25G VCSEL Shipment Surpasses 1 Million Channels
Avago Technologies today announced it has shipped more than 1 million channels of 25G VCSELs to the enterprise optical networking market.
Using Avago's broad portfolio of VCSEL IP, the 25G VCSEL technology drives a wide range of fibre optic transceiver modules for next generation Ethernet, Infiniband and high performance computing (HPC) applications.
"Given the growing demands of optical links within the data centre, there is a pressing need for new high-speed VCSEL solutions to support high data bandwidth requirements," said Philip Gadd, senior vice president and general manager of the Fibre Optics Product Division at Avago.
"25G VCSEL technology will be a cornerstone for next generation short reach optical networking protocols and applications such as Ethernet, Infiniband, Fibre Channel, PCIe, and SAS. With a proven 25G VCSEL technology and a broad portfolio of high-speed fiber optic solutions, Avago is well positioned to serve a variety of customers and applications."
"This is an exciting milestone for VCSEL technology, the workhorse of optical Datacom for many years," noted Dale Murray, Principal Analyst for LightCounting Market Research. "While we have increased our projections for 25G VCSEL-based modules in the latest market forecast report, it comes as pleasant revelation that Avago has already shipped a million 25G channels. This bodes well for the long-term future of VCSELs."
Avago will be showing new 25G and 4x25G fibre optic transceiver solutions in the Avago booth 1567 at the OFC 2015 exhibition in Los Angeles, California from March 24th to 26th.
