NeoPhotonics Unveils 400G Suite at ECOC

VALENCIA, Spain -- NeoPhotonics Corporation (NYSE: NPTN), a leading designer and manufacturer of hybrid photonic integrated circuit based modules and subsystems for bandwidth-intensive, high speed communications networks, today announced a suite of products and technologies designed to support 400G and beyond optical transport across multiple network segments, including long haul, metro and data center interconnects (DCI).

This suite includes high speed Indium Phosphide-based waveguide photodetectors for coherent receivers with higher baud rate transmission, ultra-narrow linewidth lasers for higher order constallations such as 16QAM and 64QAM, dual output lasers for dual carrier architectures, and small form factor coherent components for high density line cards and pluggable coherent optics.

These products will be on display at the European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC) in Valencia, Spain from September 28-30 (stand 500 in the Feria Valencia Convention and Exhibition Center).

NeoPhotonics 400G product and technology suite addresses each of the approaches for increasing transport bandwidth. Conceptually, the most straight forward path to increasing the bandwidth is to increase the symbol rate by increasing the raw speed of the optical system. NeoPhotonics Indium Phosphide based high speed waveguide photo-detectors can be incorporated in both monolithic and hybrid integrated coherent receivers and are capable of supporting symbol rates of 64 Gbaud, which is twice the standard 32 Gbaud in current 100G systems.

Higher baud rate transmission is best suited to long haul applications where higher data rates can be achieved without compromising system reach. The ICRs are configured in compact small form factor packages and, when coupled with NeoPhotonics Dual micro-ITLA, efficiently support dual carrier 400G implementations.

The Dual micro-ITLA provides two independent, ultra-narrow linewidth, separately tunable, lasers in a form factor 25 percent smaller than separate micro-ITLAs and is well suited to dense linecards with either 400G or multiple 100G ports.
