MILPITAS, Calif. -- Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd. and JDSU today announced the successful transmission of IEEE-compliant 100GE optics, an important milestone for the feasibility of pluggable optics for 100GE. This achievement included transmitting and receiving Ethernet traffic at 100GE through a Sumitomo LR4 100GE CFP Multi-Source Agreement (CFP MSA) compliant optical module using the JDSU Optical Network Test instrument (ONT).

The demanding test environment showed the Sumitomo Electric 100GE LR4 CFP module's ability to transport a range of traffic from PRBS and PCS to Ethernet. The test validates both the functionality and performance of the Sumitomo 100GE LR4 CFP as well as the test applications available in the JDSU ONT.

"We are pleased to announce the successful operation of our 100GE LR4 CFP modules. We are planning to enhance our emerging high-end product line such as 40G and 100G by leveraging our vertically integrated optical device and components," said Ichiro Kono, General Manager of Optical Components Division, Sumitomo Electric Device Innovations.
