NeoPhotonics Samples 100G Class 3 Coherent Pluggable CFP2-ACO

NeoPhotonics has begun sampling its "ClearLight" CFP2-ACO (Analog Coherent Optics) Class 3 Coherent Pluggable Module -- the first in a series of high performance pluggable modules that expand upon the company’s coherent product suite to meet growing demand for high density coherent solutions for both telecom and datacenter networks.


The ClearLightTM CFP2-ACO combines all of the optical functions necessary for a coherent transponder in a standard form factor compact pluggable module and is designed to fully support the Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) “Implementation Agreement for CFP2-Analog Coherent Optics Module” (OIF-CFP2-ACO-01.0, January 22, 2016) for Class 3. The module incorporates NeoPhotonics leading ultra-narrow linewidth external cavity tunable laser and high responsivity integrated coherent receiver, exhibits low electrical power consumption and is suitable for 100G DP-QPSK and 200G 16QAM operation. The ClearLightTM Class 3 CFP2-ACO is compatible with DSP (digital signal processor) solutions from multiple vendors and places the control of the optics outside the module with the DSP.

“We are pleased to announce initial customer sampling for the emerging Coherent Pluggable market with our first CFP-2 ACO module in a Class 3 configuration,” said Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics. “We are building upon our core strength in advanced hybrid photonic integrated circuits to combine multiple different functions in a compact module utilizing the right material technology for each element. This will allow us to follow this first product with a series of modules to meet the ever increasing performance demands of future networks,” continued Mr. Jenks.
