Just as Oclaro (booth 2747) drove the emergence of 100G networks, it is now also delivering a new generation of components and modules that will enable 400G networks and beyond. During OFC 2017, Oclaro will be showcasing a powerful line-up of 100G, 200G, and 400G products that exploit the company’s indium phosphide technology and photonic integration expertise. These products deliver the increased faceplate density, higher bandwidth, lower power consumption and longer reach that telecom service providers and data centre operators need to transition to higher speed networks capable of meeting the industry’s insatiable demand for more speed and bandwidth.
