NeoPhotonics unveils 40G transceiver for data transmission


NeoPhotonics, a designer and manufacturer of photonic
integrated circuit, or PIC, based modules and subsystems for
bandwidth-intensive, high speed communications networks, announced sample
availability of its first 40G transceiver module for high speed Ethernet client
side applications.


The new pluggable transceiver increases the data rate per
module from 10G, in the case of XFP or SFP+ transceivers, to 40G, and is
designed to meet increasing bandwidth demand in data centers. Compared to a
traditional 10G approach, the new module transmits four times the data over
single mode fiber at distances up to 10 kilometers.


We are excited to announce our first 40G client-side
transceiver module for cloud and data center applications,” said Tim Jenks,
Chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics


The company has provided samples to its customers as they
serve the rapidly expanding 40G Ethernet market with cost-effective pluggable


The new module complements our existing broad portfolio
of line side products, such as its Integrated Coherent Receiver (ICR) for 40G
and 100G DWDM transport applications, and underlines its commitment to the
ultra-high speed segment of the transceiver market.


The new 40G CFP module is the latest addition to the
company’s expanding high speed transceiver portfolio, which includes a range of
XFP, SFP+ and 10G EPON/XG-PON1 modules plus high speed receivers for coherent


The new NeoPhotonics product is designed primarily to
connect gigabit and terabit routers and switches with next generation high
capacity transport systems. The 40G transceiver is designed to comply with the
IEEE 802.3ba 40GBASE-LR4 specification and to support OTU3 rates and 44.4G for
future applications.
