NeoPhotonics Samples Dual Rate 100G LR4 CFP2 Transceivers for Datacom and Telecom Applications

Low power Dual Rate 100G LR4 CFP2 Form Factor Pluggable 100G Optical Transceiver Modules are Designed to Enable Wider Deployment of 100G Client Interfaces

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 10, 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, today announced sample availability of its Dual Rate 100G LR4 CFP2 for 100G Client side applications. The 100G LR4 CFP2 requires less than half the power is one half of the size of the currently shipping 100G LR4 CFP form factor, thus making it an attractive form factor for bandwidth hungry datacenter applications where both faceplate port density and lower electrical power are highly desired.

NeoPhotonics’ 100G LR4 CFP2 transceiver is designed to fully comply with the IEEE 802.3ba 100GBASE-LR4 standard for links up to 10km and also supports the higher OTU4 datarate for telecom applications. The transceiver utilizes a 4-channel PIC-based integrated transmitter based on NeoPhotonics’ proven high performance, high volume manufacturing platform for 28G EML lasers and drivers, which are designed to meet stringent OTU-4 optical performance requirements.

“The introduction of our second 100G Client transceiver module underlines our commitment to the ultra-high speed segment of the transceiver market,” said Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics. “We are pleased to support our customers with a growing portfolio of high performance Client side transceivers based on our proven 28G EML laser and driver technologies and to facilitate the rapidly expanding 100G market with cost-effective pluggable solutions,” continued Mr. Jenks.

Also at the OFC Exhibition, NeoPhotonics is showcasing its 100G Client transceivers alongside its existing product portfolio, including intradyne coherent receivers and narrow linewidth tunable lasers for 100G coherent communications and an extensive line of next generation transceivers for access networks in Booth 1815 at the Optical Fiber Communications (OFC) Exposition at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California, March 11-13.
