Applied Optoelectronics, Inc., a leading provider of fiber-optic access network products for the internet data center, cable broadband, fiber-to-the-home and telecom markets, will be showcasing several 200G and 100G products at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition (OFC) taking place on March 21-23, in Los Angeles, California at booth #1801.
“As hyperscale data center operators expand and upgrade their infrastructure to handle higher bandwidth needs, they continue to rely on next-generation optical technology with higher data speeds,” said Joshua Yeh, Applied Optoelectronics, Inc. general manager for network equipment and modules. “AOI is proud to introduce a new 200 Gbps product family that enables data rates up to 200 Gbps for intra-data center applications. These products leverage AOI’s unique in-house laser design and manufacturing processes that can be optimized to produce 400 Gbps solutions, and solutions with even higher data rates, in the future.”
AOI will be showcasing its product portfolio, as well as providing live demonstrations of several new next-generation products for intra-data center applications, including:
- 200G SR8 Active Optical Cables
- 200G On-Board Optics
- 200G CWDM Optics (2x100G CWDM4)
- 100G µQSFP Active Optical Cables
In addition to the booth demonstrations, AOI’s senior R&D engineer for high speed laser design, Prashant Baveja, will present a paper titled “56 Gbps PAM-4 Directly Modulated Laser for 200G/400G Data-Center Optical Links”. Baveja is scheduled to present the paper in a booth session on Thursday, March 23 at 3:30 PM.
