New Micro-ITLA Is Designed To Offer Improved Performance for Next Generation Coherent Networks for 100 Gbps and Beyond
The demand for bandwidth continues to grow at a rapid pace. Deployments of 100 Gbps networks utilizing advanced modulation techniques and coherent detection are increasingly preferred by carriers as these technologies provide improved signal quality and allow for longer spans in metro and long-haul "backbone" networks; thus lowering the overall cost of transporting high-bandwidth data from one place to another. The narrow-linewidth tunable laser is a key element in coherent optical communications systems. Much like tuning to a signal in a radio receiver, coherent detection uses a narrow-linewidth laser (local oscillator) tuned to the transmitter optical frequency. Laser linewidth must be in the range of a few hundred kilohertz to avoid penalties to signal-to-noise ratio and system performance.
"NeoPhotonics is one the few companies that can design and manufacture precision tunable lasers with linewidth suitably narrow for coherent network applications. In fact, we became the industry's largest supplier of narrow-linewidth tunable lasers in 2012," said
Forward Looking Statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements. Readers are cautioned that these forward-looking statements are only predictions and may differ materially from actual future events or results. These forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, as well as assumptions and current expectations. The company's actual results and the timing of events could differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements as a result of these risks, uncertainties and assumptions. The risks and uncertainties that could cause the company's results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements include but are not limited to: acceptance by customers of the micro ITLA or the timing of such acceptance may not be as the company expects; the timing of or costs related to the development, general availability and performance and production of the micro ITLA may not be as the company expects; the demand for the micro ITLA may be volatile or lower than the company expects; demand for the micro ITLA could decrease from the company's expectations due to general conditions in the telecommunications equipment industry, changes in network architectures, or the world economy generally, and other risks and uncertainties described more fully in the company's documents filed with or furnished to the
