NeoPhotonics 40G transceiver module transmits at distances up to 10 km

A 40G CFP transceiver module is designed 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. Compared to a traditional 10G approach, the new module transmits four times the data over single-mode fiber at distances up to 10 km.

PRESS RELEASE

NeoPhotonics Enters the Cloud with its First 40G Transceiver for High-Speed Data Transmission

40G-LR4 CFP Transceiver Module Designed for 40G Ethernet Client-Side Applications
 
San Jose, CA – July 25, 2011 – NeoPhotonics Corporation (NYSE: NPTN), a leading designer and manufacturer of photonic integrated circuit, or PIC, based modules and subsystems for bandwidth-intensive, high speed communications networks, today 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 today’s 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.  “We have provided samples to our customers as they serve the rapidly expanding 40G Ethernet market with cost-effective pluggable solutions.  The new module complements our existing broad portfolio of line side products, such as our Integrated Coherent Receiver (ICR) for 40G and 100G DWDM transport applications, and underlines our commitment to the ultra-high speed segment of the transceiver market,” concluded Mr. Jenks.
 
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 applications.  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.  The new 40G CFP module is now available in sample quantities.
