Oclaro demonstrates 400G CFP8 module at OFC 2017

Oclaro has announced sampling of a 400G CFP8 optical transceiver to support the ultra-high bandwidth requirements of core routers and optical transport applications. Oclaro held a live demo of the CFP8 at its booth #2747 at OFC 2017.

Delivering four times more bandwidth than existing 100G CFP-family devices in a small and compact footprint, the device operates with eight lasers using 50Gb/s per channel and PAM4.

Oclaro samples dual micro-ITLA

Oclaro says it is sampling a new dual micro-ITLA (integrable tunable laser assembly) containing two micro-ITLA devices in the same package. The dual micro-ITLA enables a 25 per cent reduction in size and 1W lower power consumption compared to using two discrete micro-ITLAs, while providing the same optical performance and reliability as the discrete devices.
