Oclaro Unveils Advanced Raman And Hybrid Raman-Erbium Doped Amplification Solutions For Next Generation Networks

SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Oclaro, Inc. (NASDAQ: OCLR), a leading provider and innovator of optical communications solutions, today announced advanced Raman and hybrid Raman-EDFA products platform for next-generation 100+ Gbit/s transmission systems. These products are available with advanced intelligent embedded span diagnostics and channel monitoring features to enable operators to achieve OPEX savings through deployment efficiencies and autonomous plug-and-play operation.  A high degree of integration and controller consolidation has been used to enable compact, low-power consumption and cost-effective designs. These products are available as customized line-cards, managed subsystems or super-modules. The design flexibility of the Oclaro OASIS platform enables rapid customization to meet exacting customer time-to-market requirements.

Scalable next-generation optical networks solutions must support data rates beyond 100G to meet the forecasted bandwidth demand growth. However, higher data rates require higher signal-to-noise ratios, which can significantly reduce the maximum transmission distance unless higher-performance amplifiers are used. Distributed Raman amplification in the span itself is a well-known technique to accomplish this, but solutions available in the market suffer a number of challenges such as physical size, power consumption, laser safety implementation, and complex deployment procedures requiring highly skilled craft personnel.

The amplifier solutions announced here address all these challenges to provide higher performance needed for future higher data rates as well as size and power consumption requirements for space-efficient next generation networks. Advanced monitoring and span diagnostics features offer safe start-up confirming an unbroken fiber path and thus reducing the risk of personnel being exposed to high-power emission. Furthermore, these features enable the system to evaluate the fiber path both within the central office and in the span for excessive loss and reflections, which may pose a system failure risk and degrade performance. Information extracted from the fiber can also be utilized to optimize pump powers as well as signal launch powers for maximizing the transmission performance. The platform supports the integration of the multi-port optical channel monitoring which enables accurate signal monitoring and amplifier control. Oclaro Raman and hybrid Raman-EDFA products incorporate these advanced and differentiating features to add value and provide our customers with a competitive advantage.
