Source Photonics Announces Broad Expansion of High-Speed Datacenter and Routing Product Offerings

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#100Glt;/agt;–Source Photonics has added a wide range of new products to its
industry-leading portfolio of single-mode products for datacenter and
routing applications. The new products leverage the company’s multi-year
investment in 28Gbaud and 53Gbaud PAM4 developments and support
applications such as the 400G DR4, FR4 and LR8, 100G DR/FR, and 50G LR
and ER. Source Photonics is accepting orders now for production
shipments in the second quarter of 2019.

In addition, Source Photonics also announces the availability of its
second-generation 100G QSFP28 CWDM4. This solution leverages its
best-in-class manufacturing process developed to scale 400G volumes.
Coupled with 100G LAN-WDM expansion from LR4 to OTU4, 4WDM-40, and
i-temp products, Source Photonics is able to offer a full portfolio of
products to Cloud, Telecom, and Enterprise operators and OEMs.

Development of novel manufacturing technologies and substantial
investments support the company’s >1 million units’ annual capacity for
the 50G to 400G product lines, meeting the increasing demand of
large-scale customers.

“Source Photonics led the market deployment of small form-factor 10 km
products for several generations,” says Ed Ulrichs, Director of PLM at
Source Photonics. “The performance of our advanced 50G, 100G and 400G
PAM4 based products prove our technical and production capabilities to
lead scale of the entire 500m to 40 km portfolio.”
