BROOMFIELD, Colo. -- Cielo Communications, an industry leader in Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) technology and integrated optical subsystems, today announced the availability of the industry’s first 2.5 Gbps per channel VCSEL-based 1310 nm array modules available in either 8- or 12-channel versions. The arrays offer an unprecedented combination of increased density and low power, providing customers with a cost-effective, feature-rich, small-footprint solution in a single multi-channel module. The parallel arrays are designed for use in SONET/OC-48 applications, including dense optical networking equipment and optical backplane interconnects. These modules are Cielo’s first in a series of devices that will fuel the rapid development and deployment of 1310 nm array solutions required to create the next generation of optical networks and products.“Our 1310 nm VCSEL-based arrays are more than an industry first. They are based on a disruptive technology that will significantly stimulate the growth of a new generation of optical networks,” said Mick Wilcox, product marketing for Cielo’s array products. “This product is targeted at two main applications; dense OC-48 SONET interfaces and proprietary intra-system interconnects. Our product provides the densest OC-48 interconnect solution in the industry. As intra-system interconnects extend beyond the 300 meters supported by today’s 850 nm parallel optic modules, Cielo’s 1310 nm parallel optic solution will enable a clean migration to a 1310 nm single mode solution supporting distances up to 15 km.”Cielo Communications Inc.
