JDSU unveils 8500 Series 40G coherent transponder for high-speed optical networking applications

By Telecom Lead Team:JDSU, a provider of test and measurement solutions for
the telecommunications industry, announced the launch of its 8500 series 40
Gigabit per second (40G) coherent (DP-QPSK) transponder. With this power and
cost efficient transponder solution, JDSU aims to increase the adoption rate of
40G coherent transmissions.


The JDSU 8500 series transponder increases fiber capacity
by a factor of four (versus 10G) while achieving over 3,000 km of reach on
uncompensated fiber links. It is designed for a broad range of high-speed
optical networking applications that includes key coherent processing
technology from system-on-chip (SoC) supplier ClariPhy.


The solution integrates a wide range of optical
components from JDSU, including an intradyne coherent receiver, tunable laser,
and lithium niobate modulator. It features the latest mixed signal digital
processing (MXSP) system-on-chip technology from ClariPhy.


“ClariPhy’s single-chip coherent technology and the
team’s ability to support a fast paced development enabled us to deliver our
8500 series transponders to customers who have been looking for a cost and
power effective upgrade path to 40G coherent transmissions,” said Tom
Fawcett, vice president of Marketing for transmission modules at JDSU.


JDSU will demonstrate the new transponder at booth #1403
during the Optical Fiber Communication Conference/National Fiber Optics
Engineers Conference (OFC/NFOEC).


JDSU PacketPortal Gives Real-Time Access to Network Data


Recently the company also announced the launch of
PacketPortal, which helps communications service providers (CSPs) get real-time
access to critical network data.


PacketPortal is a Smart Network Application Platform
(SNAP); it uses microprobe technology that can gather network intelligence
ubiquitously, helping CSPs deliver high-quality subscriber experience.  In
this competitive scenario, PacketPortal introduces a new way to drive revenue
and build customer loyalty, according to JDSU.
