12 Sep Ranovus Announces Availability of World’s First Quantum Dot multi-wavelength Laser and Silicon Photonics Platform Technologies to create a new cost and power consumption paradigm for DCI Market
Ranovus’ disruptive platform, based on Quantum Dot Multi-Wavelength Laser and Silicon Photonics foundational technologies, is delivering 200Gbps Optical Engine and CFP2 pluggable solutions to address the growing demands of data center interconnect market for scalability, lowest cost and power consumption.
Ottawa, Canada – September 12, 2016 –
Ranovus Inc., a leading provider of multi-terabit interconnect solutions for data center and communications networks, today announced availability of a highly scalable Optical Engine and 200Gbps CFP2 optical transceiver solution for the Data Center Interconnect market. Ranovus’ product solutions are based on the company’s innovation in delivering a multi-wavelength Quantum Dot Laser (QDL), Ring Resonator based Silicon Photonic (SiP) modulators and Driver IC’s as well as Receiver building blocks to support the lowest cost and lowest power consumption per bit for network connectivity compared to any other available solution.
“In the mid 1990s the optical communication industry was revolutionized through the invention of multi-wavelength amplifiers. Today we are announcing the availability of the World’s First multi-wavelength subsystem based on a single Quantum Dot Laser source. Complementing such innovation with our highly integrated Silicon Photonics and high speed IC building blocks, will enable the creation of a new miniaturization, cost and power consumption paradigm for Inter/Intra Data Centre connectivity, 5G wireless backhaul, Metro and Access networks” said Hamid Arabzadeh, Chairman of the board, President and CEO of Ranovus. “I’m pleased to announce the availability of our 200Gbps DCI solution using our platform technologies to enable massive data center network connectivity”.
Highlights of Ranovus’ platform solution:
- A single Quantum Dot Laser capable of generating multiple wavelengths simultaneously
- Ring Resonators based SiP Modulators providing an efficient wavelength sensitive way to modulate a WDM optical signal without multiplexing or de-multiplexing architectures
- Advanced Electronics to enable PAM4 modulation format for Ethernet interfaces at 50Gb/s per lane and beyond
- Supporting links of 4.8 Tbps in the C-band
- Supporting various DCI transport distances from 15 to 120km
“Data center operators have been looking for a long time for a disruptive solution to achieve scalable multi-terabits bandwidth connectivity in a form factor that consumes less power and is much less expensive than other available products,” said Christoph Glingener, CTO/COO at ADVA Optical Networking. “That’s why our relationship with the team at Ranovus is so important. Together, we’re developing direct-detect DCI technology that will have a significant impact on the market”.
Ranovus’ optical engines and modules offer a disruptive value proposition in attaining the lowest cost connectivity solutions compared to Coherent-based and other Direct Detect solutions. The company’s product roadmap includes optical engines and pluggable modules beginning with 200Gbps applications in a CFP2 form factor and 400Gbps in a future CFP8 form factor.
