- For use in Core 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 a 4" x 5" 100G OIF (*1)168pin Coherent Transceiver for digital coherent transmission systems (*2) as defined in the 2nd generation OIF 168pin module specifications (100GLH-ME-02.0). 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 core 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. For core network applications the 5" x 7" 100G OIF 168pin Coherent Transceiver defined in the OIF 168pin module specification (OIF-MSA-100GLH-EM-01.0) for long distance and high capacity transmission systems has been deployed. For future applications, a smaller size, lower power consumption and lower cost coherent transceiver as defined in the 2nd generation OIF 168pin module specifications (100GLH-ME-02.0) is needed.

(*1) Acronym for Optical Internetworking Forum. The OIF is an organization that promotes standardization for the equipment and components used in optical network.
(*2) An optical reference is combined with the incoming optical signal to produce an electrical signal out from the receiver. The waveform distortion that occurs 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) Band limiting filter design that does not create inter-symbol interference in adjacent channels. The use of Nyquist filtering allows for higher density WDM systems.
