MI 8000XM 100-Gb/s Transponder
Nov 2011
Oclaro Inc., Advanced Photonics SolutionsRequest Info
SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 30, 2011 — Oclaro Inc. has introduced the MI 8000XM, a low-power 100-Gb/s MSA-compliant coherent transponder that leverages its competencies in indium phosphide and lithium niobate material technologies, and its vertical integration in optical components.

The transponder uses a polarization-multiplexed quadrature phase-shift keying modulation format combined with coherent detection, the leading technology for enabling 100-Gb/s-and-higher optical transmission and for delivering the scalability and flexibility needed for transmitting more bandwidth cost-efficiently over fiber optic networks.

The instrument integrates the latest generation digital signal processor with an advanced control and management implementation to deliver state-of-the-art performance in a module that is easy for customers to integrate into their network equipment.

It fully complies with the OIF 100-Gb/s MSA Implementation Agreement, including specifications on power consumption. It uses a low-power digital signal processor large-scale integrated circuit supplied by NTT Electronics Corp. that offers correction of chromatic dispersion as well as polarization mode dispersion. This enables the transponder to adapt automatically to the dispersion properties of a wide range of new and existing optical networks. The inclusion of soft-decision forward error correction further broadens applications.

The transponder is targeted at optical network solutions from metro through ultralong haul, including submarine networks to support the growth of bandwidth-intensive services such as video, cloud computing and wireless broadband data services. The automatic chromatic dispersion and polarization mode dispersion compensation properties make the module suitable for next-generation optical network architecture with extensive optical routing and richer mesh network topologies. High spectral as well as physical density — the latter enabled by reduced power dissipation — are key characteristics for deployment in those networks, which will meet ever-increasing bandwidth demands.
