September 21, 2018

~Live Demonstration of 400G FR4 Transceiver~

Kawasaki, Japan, September 21, 2018 - Fujitsu Optical Components Limited (FOC) announced today that it will showcase its 400G transceiver solutions for next-generation optical networks in FOC’s booth #703 at ECOC ( *1 ) 2018 in Rome, Italy on September 24-26, 2018.

For data center applications, a live demonstration of its 400G FR4 transceiver [QSFP56-DD ( *2 ) and OSFP ( *3 ) form factor] supporting 400G FR4 standard defined by 100G lambda MSA ( *4 ), which is in the final stage of development, will take place in FOC’s booth, showing the optical output waveform of a 4 x 100G/λ 400G PAM4 signal.

Also, FOC will showcase 400G DCO ( *5 ) transceivers supporting the OIF ( *6 ) 400ZR project for data center interconnect (DCI) applications, and 400G CFP2 ( *7 ) DCO transceivers for metro applications.

FOC is a leading provider of high performance optical components and modules and has proven itself by being the first in the world to launch leading-edge optical component products to meet the insatiable demand for bandwidth of advanced communication networks. In 2017, FOC launched its 64Gbaud LN modulator and 64Gbaud integrated coherent receiver, both used in high bandwidth coherent transceivers.

At ECOC 2018, FOC will showcase its 400G transceiver portfolio for short reach, DCI and metro applications, so as to meet the growing capacity demands of global network service providers and datacenter operators in a variety of networking environments. This transceiver portfolio includes 400G FR4/LR4 and 400G ZR, in both OSFP and QSFP56-DD form factors, for short-reach and DCI applications. Also, it includes the 400G DCO for metro applications, in CFP2 form factor.
