SEPTEMBER 21, 2010 -- Oclaro, Inc. (Nasdaq: OCLR) has launched its TL8800 full-band Tunable XFP transceiver at the 36th European Conference and Exhibition on Optical Communication (ECOC). Oclaro now becomes the second supplier, after JDSU, to offer tunable XFPs.

The new tunable TL8800 XFP product platform is designed to enable customers to quickly and easily consolidate their DWDM 10-Gbps optics onto one format, rather than splitting between 300-pin and fixed-wavelength XFP modules depending on the performance required. Variants will cover a range of Tx chirp, Rx options, C- and L-band coverage, and enhanced performance for challenging optical and environmental operation, Oclaro says.

Oclaro sources at ECOC say the TL8800 devices are in “controlled sampling.” The XFPs should reach limited volume in the fourth quarter of this year, with production ramping in the first quarter of 2011, they added.
