Acacia Communications to Demonstrate Coherent Ecosystem

CFP2-DCO module offers functionality and performance in a small form factor

MAYNARD, Mass., March 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Acacia Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ:ACIA), a leading provider of high-speed coherent optical interconnect products, today announced that it will be demonstrating its ecosystem of coherent solutions, which support multiple commercial models, with flexible features that enhance end user network investment.  Acacia Communications’ CFP2-DCO module, introduced in November 2016, offers four times the faceplate capacity of Acacia Communications’ CFP-DCO module, and supports interoperability with a wide range of network equipment based on Acacia Communications or third-party digital signal processor (DSP) implementations.

At the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition (OFC) taking place March 21st to 23rd, 2017 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Acacia Communications will demonstrate a subset of its coherent product portfolio by interconnecting each of the following configurations running at 200 Gbps using a 16QAM modulation format:

  • CFP2-DCO – A pluggable optics solution that offers high density and a pay as you grow model that includes the DSP

  • AC400 – A board mounted 2 x 200Gbps solution offering enhanced dispersion compensation and high gain soft-decision forward error correction (FEC)

  • CFP2-ACO + Denali DSP – A pluggable optics approach that offers the performance of AC400 with multi-sourced pluggable optics

“We believe that our range of coherent module products is the broadest in the industry, supporting board mounted modules, DCO and ACO pluggable form factors, DSP, and photonic integrated circuit (PIC) commercial models,” said Raj Shanmugaraj, President and Chief Executive Officer of Acacia Communications.  “With high density and a broad range of internetworking capabilities, our CFP2-DCO module is an important piece of this ecosystem allowing interconnection of a wide-range of implementations deployed in switch, routing, and transport system equipment.”

In addition, Acacia’s CFP2-DCO can interoperate with third party DSP implementations using hard decision staircase FEC.  For higher performance 200 Gbps applications, the module supports an 8 QAM modulation format that offers improved reach compared to 16 QAM.  Enhanced features, such as internal Layer 1 encryption eliminate the need for additional external components. 

“Deutsche Telekom needs product features that improve the efficiency of our network, such as low power, plugability, and interoperability,” said Axel Clauberg, ‎Vice President, Aggregation, Transport, IP Architecture at Deutsche Telekom AG.  “We believe the industry needs more interoperability between coherent interfaces and Acacia Communications’ portfolio helps to make that happen.”

Acacia Communications is also working to standardize coherent interconnects by supporting the effort of the Optical Internetworking Forum to define an interface standard for low power 400 Gbps interfaces at transmission distances below 120 km.  Acacia Communications believes that improving the level of interoperability in optical transport networks will help improve the efficiency needed to support increasing demand for bandwidth in these networks.
