CANNES, FRANCE & SAN JOSE, USA: Oclaro Inc., a leading provider and innovator of optical communications solutions, announced it is increasing investment in 100G manufacturing capacity to support the growing demand of 100G client-side pluggable optics.
This increased investment has been driven by the company's successful introduction of 100G client side interfaces in the CFP/CFP2 form factors, and will enable Oclaro to support the existing 100G form factors along with higher density form factors that will be shipping in 2015 and beyond.
Complementing this announcement, Oclaro also announced today its second-generation CFP2 transceiver, which has been sampling to key customers and is expected to enter volume production in Q4 2014.
"By continuing to make key investments in manufacturing capacity and new product development, Oclaro is well positioned to lead the transition from CFP to CFP2 as more customers demand the higher density, lower cost and lower power consumption enabled by CFP2 designs," said Adam Carter, chief commercial officer at Oclaro.
"Our customers benefit greatly from Oclaro's long history of delivering CFP/CFP2 solutions, which enables us to provide industry-leading quality, continued cost competiveness and product improvements for datacenter 100G and service provider dual-rate applications."
