“We are pleased to add the VICR to our extensive line of PIC based intradyne coherent receivers,” said Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics. “The VICR illustrates the power of photonic integration to provide additional functionality to our existing products, which are designed to benefit our customers with improved performance in the same form factor and simplified board layouts.”NeoPhotonics is showcasing the VICR alongside its existing product portfolio, including other intradyne coherent receivers and narrow linewidth tunable lasers for 100G coherent communications, its 100G CFP and CFP2 transponders for client side transmission and an extensive line of OLT transceivers for FTTH PON networks, at the OFC Exhibition in Anaheim, California (March 19-21, 2013, Anaheim Convention Center, Booth 1601). In addition, NeoPhotonics personnel are participating in a workshop and a panel devoted to PON access applications and presenting a paper on ROADM-based wavelength agility:
- Dr. David Piehler, Chief Scientist, Access Products, will discuss the topic, “Statistical WDM is antifragile,” in Workshop OM1D: Can Access Networks Afford to be Wavelength Agile?, Monday, March 18 th, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM in Room: 303D. This workshop will examine architectural and cost considerations in the coming multi-wavelength PON systems and optical distribution networks (ODN).
- Also on Monday, 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM in Room: 304C, Dr. Piehler will give a presentation on “Scaling PON OLT port utilization – HFC style,” in connection with Panel NM3J: PONs as Used by MSOs. This panel will consider the role of PON architectures for commercial and residential services in MSO networks and the timing of PONs in the residential sector.
- Dr. Winston Way, Chief Systems Architect, and two co-authors from NEC Laboratories America, will present the paper: “Contention resolution within colorless and directionless ROADM,” Wednesday March 20 th, 8:00 AM in Room: 304C.
