JDSU expands portfolio of 40/100G optical transmission components

JDSU has released new 40G and 100G optical components, helping network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) meet high-speed data transmission requirements.

JDSU has released new 40G and 100Goptical components, helping network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) meet high-speed data transmission requirements.

“This is the latest step in the continuous expansion of our transmission components portfolio. These new additions allow us to work collaboratively with our customers as they are developing new solutions to meet the explosive demand for bandwidth,” says Tom Fawcett, senior director of transmission products at JDSU.

The latest offerings from JDSU’s transmission components portfolio include:
• 40G QPMZ Modulators supporting DP-QPSK coherent detection
• 40G Coherent Receivers supporting DP-QPSK coherent detection
• 40G DDMZ Modulators supporting DPSK direct detection
• 40G DPMZ Modulators supporting RZ-DQPSK direct detection
• 100G QPMZ Modulators supporting DP-QPSK coherent detection
• 100G Coherent Receivers supporting DP-QPSK coherent detection

JDSU’s ability to leverage in-house fabrication capabilities in Indium Phosphide, planar lightwave circuits (PLCs), and Lithium Niobate materials enables high-performance and cost-competitive component systems across various data formats and data rates. This, in turn, enables service providers to deploy 40G and 100G optical links in a cost-effective manner wherever increased bandwidth is required in the network.

The new modulators and receivers grow further JDSU’s broad optical portfolio for high-speed transmission, which currently provides solutions for 10G, 40G, and 100G client and line-side applications.

These products are on display as JDSU exhibits its optical components at booth #1401 during the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition (OFC) and the National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (NFOEC) in Los Angeles, Calif., through March 10, 2011.
