ADVA Receives JDSU’s One Millionth 980nm Pump Laser

ADVA Optical Networking, provider of telecommunication infrastructure solutions, has received JDSU’s one millionth 980 nm pump laser.

Pump lasers are utilized for powering erbium-doped fiber amplifiers, which are used for regenerating weakened network signals that travel for long distances over the optical networks. Service providers deploy the optical networks with versatile infrastructures that have the ability to meet the growing consumer demand for data, video and voice applications.

The new JDSU pump laser, known as the SP platform, offers high-performance to network device developers in a low-cost and reliable package. The SP platform functions for a maximum optical power of 660 MW. The optical power provided is over four times the power generated by JDSU’s first pump lasers. The enhanced performance is required to support growing bandwidth demands.

ADVA’s Chief Technical Officer, Christoph Glingener stated that the company offers a scalable and versatile transmission platform that provides improved performance for long haul, metro core and backhaul networks. He added that JDSU has been a vital optical components provider for the company.
