Lumentum adds to coherent transmission range

Share this on social media:

Lumentum has announced its latest innovation - the 400G CFP2-DCO - to its high-performance coherent transmission portfolio. 

These modules enable next-generation data centre interconnects (DCI) and metro/regional to long-haul coherent networks at bit rates of 100G, 200G, 300G, and 400G.

The new flex-coherent module supports all major industry initiatives including OpenROADM, OpenZR+, and OIF 400G ZR. It also adds numerous innovative proprietary modes when best performance is needed and cross-vendor interoperability is not. In addition, it supports L1 encryption, Link Layer Discovery Protocol, and Overhead IO channel. Currently, the 400G CFP2-DCO is shipping as beta samples with production release planned for the third quarter of 2021. 

In addition to the new modules, the company has enhanced its latest 100G PAM4 (53 Gbaud) directly-modulated laser (DML) to expand the usage from 500 m for 100G DR and 400G DR4 and 100 m for 800G PSM8 DR4, to also transmit up to 2 km for 100G FR and 400G FR4 CWDM transceiver module applications.

Its comprehensive portfolio of wavelength selective switches (WSS) has also expanded to support all spectral bands, including C-band, L-band, and extended C-band, within all of its industry-leading WSS solutions that are at the core of next-generation colorless, directionless, and contentionless (CDC) and colorless, directionless (CD) ROADM architectures. 

You can view the company's latest developments for telecom, 5G wireless, cable and fibre access, and hyperscale data centre networks at the virtual Optical fibre Communication Conference (OFC) from June 7 – 11.
