SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Finisar Corporation (NASDAQ: FNSR), the innovation leader in fiber optic subsystems and components, is demonstrating several new technologies for datacom applications at OFC/NFOEC, including two 100G CFP2 modules, which improve port density and flexibility in high-performance optical networks. Demonstrations will take place during OFC/NFOEC in Finisar's booth #2405 at the Anaheim Convention Center, March 19-21, 2013.
CFP2 high-density 100G modules: Finisar is demonstrating two new optical transceiver modules enabling high-density single mode and multimode 100G ports using the new CFP2 multi-sourced 100G module form factor. For single mode fiber applications, the 100GBASE-LR4 CFP2 module supports 100GE links up to 10km using 4x28G DFB lasers, with a power dissipation of less than 8W maximum and 6W typical. This is significantly lower than EML-based solutions and enables higher port density systems. The module meets IEEE 802.3, OIF and OTN standards, interoperates with existing 100GBASE-LR4 CFP modules, and is expected to be in full production later in 2013. For multimode fiber applications, the 100GBASE-SR10 CFP2 module supports 100GE links up to 150 meters. The module also supports 10G Ethernet fan-out applications, interoperating with either 10x 10GE-SR SFP+ modules (up to 300 meter links) or with 2x 40GE-SR4 QSFP+ and 2x 10GE-SR SFP+ modules, enabling 100% bandwidth utilization. Based on 10x10G VCSELs and supporting digital diagnostic monitoring functionality, the module offers a maximum power dissipation of 3.5W and interoperates with 100GBASE-SR10 CFP modules.
