finisar corporation (FNSR) Details

Finisar Corporation provides optical subsystems and components for data communication and telecommunication applications in the United States, Malaysia, China, and internationally. Its optical subsystems primarily consist of transmitters, receivers, transceivers, transponders, and active optical cables that provide optical-electrical or optoelectronic interface for interconnecting the electronic equipment used in building communication networks, including the switches, routers, and servers used in wireline networks, as well as the antennas and base stations for wireless networks. The company also offers wavelength selective switches, which are used to switch network traffic from one optical fiber to multiple other fibers without converting the optical signal to an electronic signal. In addition, it provides optical components comprising packaged lasers, receivers, and photo detectors for data communication and telecommunication applications; and passive optical components for telecommunication applications. Finisar Corporation markets its optical products through its direct sales force, as well as through a network of distributors and manufacturers’ representatives to the manufacturers of storage systems, networking equipment, and telecommunication equipment. The company was founded in 1987 and is headquartered in Sunnyvale, California.

finisar corporation (FNSR) Key Developments

Finisar Introduces SFP28 and QSFP28 Optical Modules for High Port-Count 25G and 100G Data Center Applications

Finisar introduced multiple new products, including a variety of optical modules based on the 100G QSFP28 MSA form factor, as well as the 25G Ethernet SFP28-SR transceiver, based on the SFP+ form-factor. The optical modules are designed for 100G Ethernet applications within the data center. The product portfolio includes 100G-CWDM4 module, the first 100GBASE-LR4 module under 3.5W, and a 100GBASE-SR4 module breaking-out to four SFP28-SR modules. Finisar is demonstrating new products which enable the implementation of various reaches in the QSFP28 MSA form factor in high port-count 100G systems for data centers. Targeting duplex single mode fiber applications, a new 100GBASE-LR4 QSFP28 optical transceiver module will be demonstrated on a 10 km 100G link, interoperating error-free with a CFP2 LR4 transceiver. By using a new generation of low-power DFB laser technology, the module supports a maximum power dissipation of 3.5W, enabling up to 4 Tb/s in a 1RU Ethernet Switch or Router card. It provides a retimed 4x25G electrical interface to the host board, meets IEEE 802.3 standards, and interoperates with existing 100GBASE-LR4 CFP, CFP2 and CFP4 modules. Additionally, Finisar will demonstrate the QSFP28 CWDM4 module, operating error-free over a single mode fiber link of 2 km. Using Finisar's new generation, low-power DFB laser technology, the module also supports a maximum power dissipation of 3.5W. The module meets the CWDM4 MSA optical requirements. Both of the QSFP28 CWDM4 and LR4 modules will be sampling over the next several weeks.

Finisar to Create Broadest 200G Coherent Product Portfolio with New Products

Finisar announced several new coherent transport product demonstrations to be shown this week at OFC 2015. These demonstrations include a pluggable CFP2-ACO coherent transceiver supporting 100G QPSK and 200G 16QAM applications, and the industry's first 5 inch x 7 inch Flex-Rate (40G to 200G) coherent transponder with internal DSP. Separately, Finisar will demonstrate a 100G ultra-long repeater-less fiber optic link, using its Ultraspan® Products. These demonstrations will take place in Finisar's booth #1403 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, March 24-26, 2015. With its new Flex-Rate Transponder and CFP2-ACO transceiver, Finisar brings next-generation coherent 200G technology to datacenter-interconnect and Metro/Long Haul DWDM applications. Coherent 200G technology offers the lowest cost per bit solution available and enables 400G transport using two wavelengths. The demonstration shows 200G 16QAM interoperability between Finisar's Flex-Rate Transponder and a CFP2-ACO module. These flexible solutions support multiple combinations of modulation format, data rate, and reach to simplify system integration. Supported by the embedded Lightspeed II CL20010 DSP from ClariPhy, the module provides exceptional OSNR (Optical Signal to Noise Ratio) tolerance and extended chromatic dispersion tolerance, reducing the need for regeneration. The module is suitable for applications in transport and routing systems. A variant of the module supporting 40/50G BPSK is also available for ultra-long haul and submarine applications. The CFP2-ACO transceiver, based on Finisar's Indium Phosphide (InP) technology, offers the most flexible architecture in the industry. Using linear RF drivers, the Finisar CFP2-ACO can support any modulation format from 40/50G BPSK to 200G 16QAM. Separate lasers for transmit and receive allow the module to support different wavelengths in each direction. The module follows the mechanical and management interface defined by the CFP MSA and supports all three classes defined by the draft OIF Implementation Agreement. While today's router and transport equipment typically offer 1-2 coherent ports per line card, the CFP2-ACO will enable system vendors to offer high-density pluggable interfaces supporting 1 Tb/s or more on a line card. Both products are currently sampling. Finisar is showcasing new technology based on its UltraSpan® amplifiers to extend the reach and capabilities of traditional telecom systems. For ultra-long (400 km) fiber optic links, Finisar is demonstrating a 100G ultra-long coherent link that does not require repeaters. Ultra-long links are used in applications such as oil, gas, mining, energy, and transportation. UltraSpan products are currently shipping in volume.

Finisar Introduces WaveShaper Optical Processor with Reprogrammable MxN Port Configuration

Finisar introduced the WaveShaper™ 16000S Programmable Optical Processor with reprogrammable MxN port configuration. In addition, the WaveAnalyzer 1500S High Resolution Optical Spectrum Analyzer offers new functionality ideally suited for Research & Development applications. The WaveShaper 16000S capabilities have been extended by offering additional port configurations. In addition to the standard 4x16 configuration, this instrument now supports 1x19, 8x12 and 10x10 port configurations. User-defined filter functions with arbitrary shape in amplitude and phase can still be applied between any input and any output port. This flexible port allocation is of particular importance to research on Software Defined Networks (SDN). The WaveAnalyzer 1500S adds enhanced signal analysis capability for Optical Signal to Noise Ratio (OSNR) Measurements in real time with update rates of up to 10 Hz. The WaveAnalyzer's 6-point OSNR measurement technique enables OSNR measurements on densely spaced channels by exploiting the high spectral resolution (150 MHz) of the instrument. The WaveShaper and WaveAnalyzer instruments can be controlled using Finisar's intuitive graphical user interface packages or simple Application Programming Interface (API). The API is available for both Windows and Linux operating systems and allows integration of the instruments in test system environments.
