Sumitomo Electric Industries, JDSU demonstrate error-free 100-Gigabit Ethernet transmission

MARCH 3, 2010 -- Sumitomo Electric Industries Ltd. and JDSU have announced the successful transmission of IEEE-compliant 100-Gigabit Ethernet (100GbE) optics. The demonstration included transmitting and receiving Ethernet traffic at 100GbE through a Sumitomo LR4 100GbE CFP Multi-Source Agreement compliant optical module using the JDSU Optical Network Test instrument.

MARCH 3, 2010 -- Sumitomo Electric Industries Ltd. and JDSU (Nasdaq: JDSU; and TSX: JDU) have announced the successful transmission of IEEE-compliant 100-Gigabit Ethernet (100GbE) optics. The demonstration included transmitting and receiving Ethernet traffic at 100GbE through a Sumitomo LR4 100GbE CFP Multi-Source Agreement (CFP MSA) compliant optical module using the JDSU Optical Network Test instrument (ONT; see "JDSU reveals 100-Gigabit Ethernet test suite").

The test showed the Sumitomo Electric 100GbE LR4 CFP module's ability to transport a range of traffic from PRBS and PCS to Ethernet. The test validates both the functionality and performance of the Sumitomo 100GbE LR4 CFP as well as the test applications available in the JDSU ONT, the two companies assert.

"We are pleased to announce the successful operation of our 100GbE LR4 CFP modules. We are planning to enhance our emerging high-end product line such as 40G and 100G by leveraging our vertically integrated optical device and components," said Ichiro Kono, general manager of the Optical Components Division, Sumitomo Electric Device Innovations.

"We are delighted to have Sumitomo select the JDSU ONT 100G to help them bring this important technology to market," said Dave Holly, president of JDSU's Communications Test and Measurement business segment. "This partnership is also further validation of JDSU's strong relationships across the 100G ecosystem that allow us to help manufacturers bring their solutions to the market on time and on budget, ensuring the reliable delivery of 100GbE."
