NeoPhotonics Announces General Availability of Dual Rate 100G CFP2 LR4 Transceiver
Low power, Dual Rate and Compact 100G CFP2 Pluggable Optical
Transceiver Module Designed to Enable High Bandwidth and High Density
CANNES, France--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 22, 2014--
NeoPhotonics Corporation (NYSE:NPTN), a leading designer and
manufacturer of photonic integrated circuits, or PIC, based modules and
subsystems for bandwidth-intensive, high speed communications networks,
announced the general availibility of Low Power, Dual Rate 100G CFP2 LR4
for Telecom and Datacom applications. The 100G CFP2 LR4 requires less
than half of the power as well as half of the size compared to 100G CFP
form factor transceivers. This makes the CFP2 LR4 an attractive next
generation 100G module solution for today’s bandwidth hungry datacenter
applications where both port density and lower power are highly desired.
The 100G CFP2 LR4 transceiver is designed to fully comply with the IEEE
802.3 100GBASE-LR4 and CAUI-4 Electrical Interface, and OTN OTU4
standards for link distances up to 10km. It also complies with CFP2 MSA
and MDIO functionality. The 4-channel PIC-based integrated transmitter
is based on NeoPhotonics proven performance and high volume
manufacturing platform of 28G EML lasers and drivers, which enable
best-in-class module performance, inter-operabability and ease of
“After serving the 100G market with our CFP product, we are pleased to
add this second generation form factor into our 100G portfolio,” said
Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics. “CFP2 is the first 100G
interface that provides face plate density advantages over 10G SFP+.
Therefore we believe this new form factor, based on our industry leading
28G EML laser technology, will provide additional value to the rapidly
expanding 100G market in which maximum bandwith management is a
necessity,” continued Mr. Jenks.
In addition, NeoPhotonics announced that on Wednesday, September 25,
2014 at 13:35 pm, Dr. Winston Way, Chief System Architect of
NeoPhotonics, will present a talk entitled “CDC ROADMs: Exploring
Modular and Expandable Approaches” in the “Optical Network Agility”
Session of the Market Focus forum as part of the ECOC Exhibition.
NeoPhotonics will exhibit its suite of standard and small form factor
PIC-based components for 100G coherent line-side applications, along
with its 100G client-side CFP2 transceivers and its next generation
transceivers for access networks at Stand 307 at the European Conference
on Optical Communications (ECOC), Palais Des Festivals, Cannes, France,
