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."

Cloud resources, although available in abundance, are inherently volatile. For transactional computing, like ERP and most enterprise software, this is a challenge as transactional integrity and data fidelity is paramount – making it a challenge to create cloud native applications while relying on RDBMS. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Claus Jepsen, Chief Architect and Head of Innovation Labs at Unit4, will explore that in order to create distributed and scalable solutions ensuring high availa...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in.
