Oclaro Integrates at 100G

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Oclaro, Inc. (NASDAQ: OCLR), a tier-one provider and innovator of optical communications and laser solutions, today announced that it has achieved full vertical integration of optical components with its MI 8000XM 100 Gbps coherent transponder. As a leading supplier of both optical components and modules, Oclaro can now source all key optical components required for the MI 8000XM internally to deliver a fully-integrated 100 Gbps transponder solution that delivers market leading performance and cost efficiencies while offering easy and rapid integration into network equipment vendors’ system solutions.

The MI 8000XM transponder leverages Oclaro's proven history in delivering coherent solutions. Oclaro’s high degree of vertical integration and its broad portfolio of optical components, including the integrable tunable-laser assembly, integrated PM-QPSK modulator, and integrated dual-polarization intradyne coherent receiver, are key advantages for delivering a cost-efficient, high-performing 100 Gbps coherent transponder product. Augmenting the supply chain of critical optical components with internal sourcing options also increases security of supply. Consequently, the MI 8000XM transponder is well positioned in the 100 Gbps coherent transponder market, which the analyst firm Infonetics Research predicts will grow more than 200% per year through 2015.
