MILPITAS, Calif. -- JDSU (NASDAQ: JDSU and TSX: JDU) today announced that is has developed the first tunable SFP+ transceiver to replace fixed wavelength SFP+ transceivers and legacy products in Enterprise and Metro networks.

JDSU created the new transceiver leveraging its Integrated Laser Mach Zehnder (ILMZ) chip that was developed in 2007 and used to create the world’s first tunable XFP transceiver for telecom networks in 2009.

The tunable SFP+ transceiver will act as the ‘on and off ramp’ for optical networks, converting between electrical and optical data streams as data enters and leaves a network. Different colors (wavelengths) of light are employed to transport information optically and the tunable SFP+ transceiver will allow network operators to flexibly switch from one wavelength to another to optimize the performance of a network. Along with flexibility of wavelength provisioning, the tunable SFP+ transceiver will ease the cost of holding expensive inventory required with current fixed wavelength SFP+ products.
