Oclaro Intros Tunable CFP
The new Oclaro transceiver is based on a direct-detection ODB (Optical Duobinary) modulation format which complements Oclaro’s line of 100G coherent transponder solutions. Direct detection, which utilizes standard low cost components, delivers significant reductions in cost and power consumption and is ideally suited to address the needs of the growing 100G metro and long-haul markets. With solutions for both formats, Oclaro is well positioned in the exploding 100G DWDM market which analyst firm Ovum expects will grow beyond $1 billion for the line side alone by 2014.
“By delivering an expansive line of 100G solutions for the core optical network, Oclaro is able to meet the evolving needs of our customers when it comes to cost, performance, spectral efficiency, and power consumption,” said Jim Haynes, President and General Manager of the Oclaro Photonic Components Business Unit. “Many of our customers are managing legacy networks alongside new 100G systems, and they can rely on Oclaro to help them continually maintain a competitive lead in the market with a broad set of products across multiple modulation schemes.”
