Finisar Intros Wavelength-Tunable Laser

At Expo, Finisar (NASDAQ:FNSR) will showcase a new 1 GHz RF-modulated, tunable optical transmitter in a small form factor module. The XFP-RF transmitter can be designed into existing broadband optical platforms or be plugged directly into CMTSs and QAM modulators with optical ports. The module features wide-band wavelength tuning, designed to allow the cable operator to tune it to 80 different DWDM wavelengths across the C-band in less than 500 ms.

The XFP-RF is designed to be loaded from 50 MHz to 1 GHz with a reach up to 40 km, as well as operational bandwidth up to 1.2 GHz. A single transmitter can be deployed for redundant paths to a node or to multiple nodes in a tapped architecture where the distance can vary greatly.
