Fujitsu Adds 40 Gbps to FLASHWAVE 7500 ROADM

Fujitsu has added third generation 40 Gbps optical interfaces to its FLASHWAVE 7500 Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) platform. The new 40 Gbps coherent interfaces for the FLASHWAVE 7500 ROADM include individual transponder, muxponder, and regenerator units. Combining advanced coherent detection technology with dual polarization quadrature phase shift keying (DP-QPSK) modulation, these new units enable enhanced performance on ultra-high speed 40 Gbps wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) networks.


The second generation 40 Gbps interface cards, which are based on Adaptive Differential Phase Shift Keying (ADPSK) modulation, are still available and will continue to be offered and supported for applications that do not require the enhanced DP-QPSK / coherent performance.


Fujitsu said its new coherent receivers offer many advantages, including improved optical performance, which allows for larger geographic networks with longer optical spans. Utilizing all-electronic compensation, coherent optics eliminate the need for dispersion compensation modules and improve operational flexibility.
