MACOM Technology Solutions

Discover how MACOM (booth 1736) is increasing bandwidth density in optical networks. Leveraging deep domain experience in optical networking along with a combination of semiconductor technologies, MACOM creates innovative and smart products supporting cloud data centre, client access, metro and long-haul applications. The company’s complete portfolio includes high-performance modulator drivers, transimpedance amplifiers, clock/data recovery circuits, crosspoints, photodiodes, Fabry Perot and distributed feedback (DFB) lasers, silicon photonics, and optical subassemblies (ROSAs and TOSAs) for enterprise and telecom optical systems operating at speeds of 100G, 400G and beyond. The portfolio addresses the high-performance analogue interfaces between electrical and optical domains, and provides solutions to meet the demanding size, power and signal integrity requirements of today’s high-speed networks, which are expanding to meet the continuously growing demand for data capacity.

Product demonstrations at OFC this year include:

  • OSA for 100G CWDM4
  • PAM-4 L-PIC Transmitter
  • 100G PAM-4 53GBaud PHY with driver and TIA
  • 64 GBaud quad linear modulator driver
  • SFP28 long-reach chipset

Demonstrations will be on display by appointment only in MACOM’s booth.

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

Feature

Switching off copper networks where fibre has been deployed is the end game, so why are so few operators doing it, wonders Pauline Rigby
