SOUTHBRIDGE, Mass. -- Telecom and datacom equipment vendors rely on optical interconnect authority Schott Optovance's established Optical Shuffle(tm) fiber management solution to interconnect their 12 channel parallel optical transceivers. With the emergence of 2-D parallel optical transceivers - the high-bandwidth version of very short reach (VSR) connections with more than 12 channels, Schott Optovance addresses this new market segment by offering its 2-D VCSEL transceiver interconnect. Following discussions with large telecom equipment vendors for next generation systems that feature multi-shelf architectures, Schott Optovance sees an emerging interest in a high-bandwidth optical interconnect solution involving their optical interconnects and the products of manufacturers of 2-D VCSEL transceiver manufacturers. Ashok Krishnamoorthy, CEO of AraLight Inc., a promising high-density, 2-D VCSEL transceiver company, said: "We view multi-bay switching and routing equipment as very promising markets for high-bandwidth very-short reach optical links. With their passive fiber management solutions, Schott Optovance's products complement AraLight's high-density transceivers." Specifically, Schott Optovance offers two types of applications for high-bandwidth links: The first application is to provide the immediate fiber coupling between VCSEL or photo diode arrays and the transceiver connectors and secondly, Schott Optovance provides high-density optical interconnect cables to span the typical backplane distances.
