- For use in Metro Networks requiring compact, low power consumption and low cost optical network equipment -
Kawasaki, Japan, September 22, 2014- Fujitsu Optical Components Limited (FOC) announced today that it has successfully developed 100G Coherent CFP (*1) transceiver that support under 1,000km transmission distance needed in metro network applications. This product will be released in the first half of 2015. This product will help facilitate compact, low power consumption and low cost 100G optical network equipment for use in metro networks.
Due to the recent rapid increase in the volume of communications traffic, the requirement for Core Networks to handle larger capacity and longer distance on their links has led to a spread of 100G optical networks using digital coherent transmission systems (*2). The requirement for metro networks to achieve larger capacity, higher port density, and lower cost has similarly led to the spread of 100G optical networks. For core network applications the 100G Coherent Transceiver defined in the OIF (*3)100GLH-EM specification for long distance and high capacity transmission systems has been deployed. For metro networks though a smaller size, lower power consumption and lower cost coherent transceiver is required. For this application a 100G Coherent CFP Transceiver with the same interface as the CFP Transceiver that is used in 100G optical networks for short transmission distance is desired.
FOC has successfully developed 100G Coherent CFP transceiver to support under 1,000km transmission distance needed for metro network applications. This product will help facilitate compact, low power consumption and low cost 100G optical network equipment for use in the metro networks.
(*1) CFP: 100G Form-factor Pluggable
(*2) An optical reference is combined with the incoming optical signal to produce an electrical signal out from the receiver. The waveform distortion that occurred in the optical transmission path is then compensated for by digital signal processing. This technique allows for significant reduction in system cost through the elimination of optical dispersion compensators and optical amplifiers (for loss compensation).
(*3) Acronym for Optical Internetworking Forum. The OIF is an organization that promotes standardization for the equipment and components used in optical networks.
(*4) MSA: Multi-Source Agreement
