Oclaro Coherent CFP2 Pluggable Module

March 17, 2015
The Coherent CFP2 module is a transceiver offered in a pluggable format. The small form factor increases density at the faceplate, reduces power dissipation, and optimizes optical performance, Oclaro says. 
This is a whole new way of addressing the coherent ecosystem by putting optical components in the module and electronics on the board, where both belong. Judge's Comment.

The Coherent CFP2 module is a transceiver offered in a pluggable format. The small form factor increases density at the faceplate, reduces power dissipation, and optimizes optical performance, Oclaro says. The flexible design can support both 100G PM-QPSK and 200G 16QAM with the appropriate DSP and driver technology.

The module leverages Oclaro's indium phosphide photonic integration technology, which results in high optical output power. This is important for systems that use linear modulation schemes, Oclaro says. The pluggable format means that customers can minimize installation costs and scale networks by adding capacity over time, the company adds.
