Fujitsu Launches CFP2 ACO Transceiver for 100G, 200G

KAWASAKI, Japan -- Fujitsu Optical Components Limited (FOC) announced today that it has successfully established a mass production system for compact, low power consumption CFP2 ACO (*1) transceiver (compliant with OIF (*2) CFP2 ACO Class 1/Class 2) which supports both the 100G DP-QPSK and the 200G DP-16QAM modulation formats. The mass produced CFP2 ACO transceiver compliant with Class 1 will be released in the second quarter of CY 2016 and the mass produced CFP2 ACO transceiver compliant with Class 2 will be released in the third quarter of CY 2016. This product will help facilitate high performance, high density mounting, and low power consumption in optical network equipment for metro networks and data center interconnects.

Due to the recent rapid increase in the volume of communications traffic, the requirement for Core Networks to handle larger capacity and longer distance on their links has led to the spread of 100G optical networks using coherent transmission systems (*3). In the near future, 100G optical networks using coherent transmission systems will also spread into metro networks and data center applications. High density mounting in optical network equipment for metro networks and data center interconnects requires downsizing the optical module portion to the same size as a CFP2 transceiver and mounting the DSP (with the high power consumption) on the mother board.

Through the downsizing of optical elements and the development of high density packaging and high accuracy mounting technology, FOC has successfully developed the mass production technology for new small size in-house optical devices (compact semiconductor optical modulator, ultra-compact integrated coherent receiver) and a CFP2 ACO transceiver using those devices. The mass produced CFP2 ACO transceiver compliant with Class 1 will be released in the second quarter of CY 2016 and the mass produced CFP2 ACO transceiver compliant with Class 2 will be released in the third quarter of CY 2016. This product supports not only 100G DP-QPSK but also 200G DP-16QAM transmissions. This product will help facilitate high performance, high density mounting, and low power consumption optical network equipment for metro networks and data center interconnects.
