Emcore has introduced the 1618A and 1718A, 6.5GHz ultra-linear distributed feedback (DFB) laser modules operating at 1310nm and 1550nm, respectively. These new wide-bandwidth laser modules are designed and optimised for analogue wireless and distributed antenna systems (DAS) applications.
Optical components and subsystems vendor Emcore plans to host a demonstration of its end-to-end DOCSIS 3.1 cable television (CATV) optical transmission link capabilities at booth #608 during OFC 2015, 24-26 March in Los Angeles, California.
A DOCSIS 3.1 compliant prototype of Emcore’s Medallion 6000 Series 1550 nm CATV transmitter will be featured in the demonstration, along with the new Medallion 2100 optical A/B switch and Medallion 7100 CATV fibre amplifier transmitting over a 40-km fibre link to Emcore’s RFoG (radio frequency over glass) transceiver.
EMCORE, a provider of compound semiconductor-based components and subsystems for the fibre optics and space solar power markets, has expanded its recently launched DOCSIS 3.1 laser line with the release of the Model 1616A DOCSIS 3.1, 1310 nm DFB Laser Module for CATV (Cable Television) applications.
As data demand ramps ever higher, researchers are looking to innovative amplifier designs to help transport a broader light spectrum through optical fibres, finds Andy Extance
Duncan Ellis shares his views about the increased focus on automation from network operators, and how the physical layer has so far stubbornly resisted the move
Switching off copper networks where fibre has been deployed is the end game, so why are so few operators doing it, wonders Pauline Rigby
