OPTICAL COMMUNICATIONS: Sumitomo and JDSU transmit 100GE traffic through pluggable optics

March 5, 2010
Osaka, Japan and Milpitas, CA--Sumitomo and JDSU successfully transmitted and detected 100 gigabit Ethernet traffic through Sumitomo pluggable optics using JDSU’s ONT instrument.

Osaka, Japan and Milpitas, CA--Sumitomo Electric Industries (SEI) and JDSU announced successful transmission and detection of 100 gigabit Ethernet (GE) traffic through an IEEE-compliant Sumitomo LR4 100GE CFP Multi-Source Agreement (CFP MSA) compliant optical module using the JDSU Optical Network Test (ONT) instrument, demonstrating the feasibility of pluggable optics for 100GE technology.

The test environment showed the Sumitomo Electric 100GE LR4 CFP module’s ability to transport a range of traffic. The test validates both the functionality and performance of the Sumitomo 100GE LR4 CFP as well as the test applications available in the JDSU ONT. The JDSU 100GE test suite evaluates and verifies components, subassemblies, and network equipment and will be able to help service providers ensure reliable performance on new network builds.

“We are pleased to announce the successful operation of our 100GE 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 Optical Components Division, Sumitomo Electric Device Innovations.

Sumitomo Electric Industries designs, manufactures, and sells optical fiber, cable and components, advanced electronic devices, and automotive parts. The company has operations around the world in more than 30 countries and employs 150,000 people. Sumitomo Electric reported group net sales of $22 billion for the year ended March 2009.
