Fujitsu Optical Shows 100G
KAWASAKI, Japan -- Fujitsu Optical Components Limited (FOC) announced today that it will be displaying its cutting-edge 100G optical component and module solutions at the OFC/NFOEC (*1) 2013 show which will be held next week in Anaheim, California, USA. The product exhibition can be seen in FOC's booth #1310 at the Anaheim Convention Center, March 19-21, 2013. Rapid increase in the volume of communications traffic has come from the spread of new services such as mobile broadband using smart devices, social networking, cloud computing and on-line streaming. 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 (*2). Similarly, the requirements on IP networks between data centers and metro core networks to achieve larger capacity, higher port density, and lower cost has led to the spread of 100 GbE optical networks. FOC has been the industry leader in the development of ultra–high speed optical components and modules needed to meet this requirement. FOC released its 100G coherent transceiver (as defined in the OIF (*3) 100GLH-EM specifications) for 100G digital coherent transmission systems and its 100GbE CFP LR4/ER4 transceiver (compliant with the CFP MSA) for 100GbE networks in advance of other companies. FOC will now newly introduce a 100 GbE CFP2 transceiver intended for LR4 applications as well. Combined with its 100G DP-QPSK (*4) LN modulator (first in the world) and integrated receivers for use in coherent transceiver applications, FOC truly provides a total solution to a broad range of customer requirements at 100 Gbps.
