Designed for the global fibre to the home (FTTH) market, the lasers are available in to-can and die-on-tape formats. The company said that they performed over and above XG-PON, ITU-G.987 specification requirements at temperatures up to 85°C and have exceeded 2,000 hours in accelerated life testing.

Euan Livingston, vice president, sales and marketing at CST Global said: ‘Our next generation XG-PON 1270nm 2.5G lasers address the worldwide, FTTH market. We are seeing increased demand in this market, especially in China, where the strong preference for UK-sourced materials gives us a unique position as a supplier. The to-can and die-on-tape formats provide our customers with flexibility in both their design cycle testing and in meeting production demands in 2019 and beyond.’
