VI Systems has introduced the R50-1300 receiver optical subassembly (ROSA), which it claims is the first to provide data rates of up to 50Gb/s for multimode-fibre-coupled receiver modules. The target applications are short-reach optical transceivers and systems inside data centres.

At the OFC Exhibition next week, VI Systems will present a set of transmitter and receiver optical subassemblies (TOSA/ROSA) and the related building blocks for the next generation of 25 Gigabit Ethernet short-reach optical transceivers.
The components on display include the 25Gb/s TOSA with part number T25-850 and 25Gb/s ROSA with part number R25-850. VI Systems say these building blocks will enable a new generation of short-reach 25 Gigabit Ethernet optical receivers in a high-performance small form factor SFP28 package or for on-board assemblies.
Cost and compatibility can make a compelling case for pushing 100Gb/s bandwidth over a single optical channel, both as individual links and supporting 400Gb/s Ethernet, finds Andy Extance
Robin Mersh takes a look at how the industry is creating next-generation optical access fit for 5G
Technological advances to aid the increasing demand for bandwidth, on the path towards the terabit network, should lead to optical signals that are flexible and adaptive, like water, argues Dr Maxim Kuschnerov and Dr Yin Wang
