KAWASAKI, Japan -- Fujitsu Optical Components Limited (FOC) today announced that a live demonstration of its coherent transceiver for 100Gbps digital coherent transmission systems (*1) as defined in the OIF (*2) 100GLH-EM specifications will take place at the OFC/NFOEC (*3) 2012 show to be held next week in Los Angeles, California, USA. The demonstrations can be viewed in FOC's booth #2317 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, March 6-8, 2012.

Rapid increase in the volume of communications traffic has come from the spread of new services such as mobile broadband using smart phones, cloud computing and on-line streaming. This has created a great demand for next-generation 100Gbps optical networks. FOC has been the industry leader in the development of ultra–high speed optical components and modules needed to meet this requirement. On September 19, 2011 FOC announced that in April, 2012 it will be releasing a coherent transceiver module as defined in the OIF 100GLH-EM specifications for 100Gbps digital coherent transmission systems. This module’s performance will be demonstrated at FOC’s booth (#2317) at the OFC/NFOEC 2012 show in Los Angeles from March 6-8, 2012.

In this demonstration, both a low dispersion path and a very high dispersion path between the optical transmitting port and the optical receiving port of the 100Gbps optical transceiver will be prepared. Optical switching between the two paths will be performed to simulate the condition seen when routes are changed in actual transmission systems. The demonstration will show that FOC’s optical transceiver has both the high-speed response required to handle the case where two optical routes with different dispersions are rapidly switched and the dispersion tolerance necessary to handle long-distance transmission.
