SAN JOSE, Calif. -- NeoPhotonics Corporation (NYSE: NPTN), a leading designer and manufacturer of photonic integrated circuit, or PIC, based modules and subsystems for bandwidth-intensive, high speed communications networks, today announced that it has added new versions to its SFP+ transceiver product suite. These additions enhance the existing portfolio of 6G SFP+ transceivers for Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) and 10G SFP+ transceivers for 10G Ethernet and OC-192/STM-64 SONET/SDH Transport.

NeoPhotonics™ new SFP+ transceivers also address the “green” transition in networking toward lower power and smaller footprint modules, which reduce overall power consumption in communication systems and support the ever higher face plate port density necessary to meet rapidly growing bandwidth demands. The SFP+ MSA allows for a maximum of 1.5 Watts of power consumption per module without Clock and Data Recovery (CDR), whereas the older XFP MSA allowed 3.5 Watts, or more than double the power, for an equivalent transceiver module. NeoPhotonics portfolio includes several versions that cover both 40km (ER) and 80km (ZR) reach and support various communication protocols.

“The introduction of new SFP+ transceivers underlines our commitment to the high speed segment of the transceiver market,” said Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics. “We are pleased to support our customers in their green efforts to reduce the power consumption and carbon footprint of their broadband networks, and to meet their growing needs for higher optical port densities on their equipment shelves,” continued Mr. Jenks.
