MARCH 17, 2010 -- Oclaro, Inc. (Nasdaq: OCLR) has announced it's first 40G RZ-DQPSK indium phosphide based transponder qualified to Telcordia standards. Designed to deliver high performance in a low-cost, 300-pin multi-source agreement (MSA) platform, the new TL9040 transponder modules are currently shipping to Tier 1 customers for field deployments.

Oclaro's new multi-rate adaptable 43-Gbps RZ-DQPSK transponder is a long reach, 300-pin transponder module for wideband tunable, C-band applications requiring -150 ps/nm to +150 ps/nm dispersion tolerance in noise-loaded link applications. It offers a significant OSNR improvement over legacy DPSK systems designed around a 50-GHz channel spacing, Oclaro says.

"Our new 40G transponders demonstrate Oclaro's commitment to continually increase the bandwidth and functionality of the network while reducing costs to the end-user," said Paul Johnson, 40G modules product line manager at Oclaro. "By incorporating our highly successful indium phosphide technology into an industry MSA footprint, we have been able to achieve substantial cost reductions and, at the same time, increase the overall performance of the system."
