Picolight First to Ship 4G 1310nm VCSEL Transceivers

Picolight is the first to ship 1310 nanometer (nm) vertical cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) transceivers in a 4 Gbps triple-rate (1, 2 and 4G bps) Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) configuration that meets the needs of one of the fastest growing segments of the data center market.

Picolight said the new device meets the extended reach capability and low power consumption needs to satisfy a broad range of short-to-medium distance applications, including 4Gbps Fibre Channel at 10km for storage area networks (SANs). Similar to 850nm VCSEL transceivers, 1310nm VCSEL transceivers have the potential to dominate short-to-medium distance single-mode fiber applications, displacing existing edge emitting laser transceivers in high-bandwidth and high-density optical systems.
