KAWASAKI, Japan -- Fujitsu Optical Components Limited (FOC) announced today that a live demonstration of the optical components used to make a 100G CFP coherent transceiver will take place at OFC 2014 next week in San Francisco, California, USA. The demonstration can be viewed in FOC's booth #3445 at the Moscone Center, March 11-13, 2014.

New services such as mobile broadband using smart devices, social networking, cloud computing, and on-line streaming have led to a rapid increase in the volume of communications traffic. This has created a great demand for 100G optical networks. The requirement for Core Networks to handle larger capacity and longer distance on their links has led to a spread of 100G optical networks using digital coherent transmission systems. The requirements on IP networks between data centers and metro networks to achieve larger capacity, higher port density, and lower cost has similarly led to the spread of 100 GbE optical networks.

For core network applications the100G Coherent Transceiver defined in the OIF 100GLH-EM specification for long distance and high capacity transmission systems has been deployed. For metro network though a smaller size, lower power consumption and lower cost coherent transceiver is required. For this application a 100G CFP Coherent Transceiver with the same interface as the CFP Transceiver which is popular in LAN will be used. To develop a CFP Coherent Transceiver smaller size, lower power consumption, and lower cost optical devices are also necessary.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
