BinOptics unveils 4x25G lasers for 100G data-center applications

BinOptics Corp of Ithaca, NY, USA,which provides lasers for data centers, mobile backhaul, access and silicon photonics, has announced the availability of 25G lasers at four wavelengths (1270, 1290, 1310 and 1330nm), allowing 100G solutions for data centers through course wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM).

Trends such as cloud computing and streaming video have fueled a rapid increase in bandwidth demands from data centers, notes the firm. Compared to 10G and 40G, 100G solutions provide an increase in data transfer with lower power consumption per bit of transferred data.

Earlier this year, an analyst at market research firm Infonetics Research said: “40G alone will easily pass $1bn in revenue this year as it becomes the technology of choice in the data center.” Infonetics also expects the 100G market to gain critical mass in 2015.

“Our team has been focused on 100G needs of data centers for some time,” says BinOptics’ CEO & co-founder Alex Behfar. “Our 25G CWDM lasers can meet the demand for lower power consumption in data transfer, allowing increased bandwidth and density in data centers.”

BinOptics’ 25G distributed feedback (DFB) laser diodes are designed to operate at temperatures from 0°C to 70°C with low power consumption. The products utilize BinOptics’ proprietary Etched Facet Technology for what is claimed to be exceptional reliability and performance while offering a cost-effective solution.

The 127, 129, 131, and 133 D-25x-Lxx11 products are now sampling and are expected to be in full production by the end of 2014.
