Acacia Communications Ships Industry's First Pluggable Coherent 100G CFP Module

Telecom, Cable, Metro and Data Center Equipment Providers Designing Company's AC100-CFP Into Their Products to Reduce Size, Power and Cost; First-to-Market 100G Coherent Solution Available Is More Cost Effective Than 10G Solutions

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/09/14 -- Acacia Communications, the leader in delivering intelligent transceivers for ultra-high speed fiber optic transmission to the telecommunications and data communications industry, today at OFC 2014 announced that the company is shipping samples of the industry's first Coherent 100G CFP module to customers. The substantial reductions in size, cost and power consumption make the AC100-CFP especially attractive for carriers and content providers deploying 100G in the fast growing Metro segment.

"We are enabling cost-sensitive metro network operators to move to 100G and achieve significant performance and capacity benefits," said Acacia President and CEO Raj Shanmugaraj. "Our 100G DWDM Coherent CFP module offers carriers and content providers optimal flexibility, at price points comparable to non-coherent short reach or client CFPs like LR4 or multi-wavelength ODB. Furthermore the AC100-CFP's lowest power and smallest form factor enable the highest densities for Coherent interfaces in the market, while reducing the total cost per bit. Coherent CFP is a technology game changer similar to XFP for 10G and our AC-100 CFP is the first to market."

"Demand for 100G DWDM modules was strong in 2013 and our recent market forecast shows the market for these products rapidly growing in 2014-2018. However, our forecast assumes that optical component and module suppliers will find ways to reduce cost, size and power consumption of 100G optical interfaces," commented Vladimir Kozlov, PhD., Founder and CEO of LightCounting Market Research. "Acacia's CFP product addresses these challenges by combining company's expertise in 100G Digital Signal processing and module design with innovative technology of silicon photonics."

Acacia's innovative Coherent AC-100 CFP transceiver is the lowest power Coherent 100G interface in the market. The new product tracks 24 watts in the 80km ZR mode, and slightly higher for the metro regional mode for distances up to 1200 km, with the digital signal processing algorithms collectively under 5 watts.

"Leveraging Acacia's innovation in low power digital signal processing and disruptive photonic integration, we have been able to maintain the performance advantages of our Coherent long-haul 5 x 7 MSA module within the AC100-CFP," said Acacia Co-Founder and Chief Technical Officer Benny Mikkelsen. "Industry leading capabilities such as pluggability and built-in OTN framing that converts client CFP slots to DWDM Metro Interface slots and multi-vendor interoperability has earned us wins with more than 15 equipment manufacturers who are designing the AC-100 CFP into their product families, supplying to telecom, cable and data center service providers. With the continuous innovation in low power digital signal processing and photonic integration, we see an exciting roadmap of pluggables starting with the Coherent CFPs that will evolve to CFP2 with built-in Digital Signal Processing in 2015."

With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, will discuss some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and relate how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material will be delivered i...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, represent...

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.
