First generation 100-Gb/s Ethernet transceiver architecture, standards and components are presented. Second generation 100-Gb/s architecture, standards and enabling photonic integration component technology are then described. Extension of this technology is shown to support cost effective 400-Gb/s Ethernet interfaces. The next OTN data rate then also becomes 400-Gb/s to efficiently carry a 400-Gb/s Ethernet payload. Further data rate increase to ≥1-Tb/s is not possible with existing technology, and will require completely new technology R&D effort. © 2011 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. Source

Major client optics applications are the highdensity data center, structured data center, carrier central office, general data center, and metro inter data center, corresponding to link reaches from 100 m to 40 km. First-generation 100G multimode fiber and single-mode fiber client optics are based on 10 × 10G electrical lane and 10 × 10G or 4 × 25G optical lane architectures. Next-generation 100G MMF and SMF client optics will be based on 4 × 25G electrical lane and 4 × 25G optical lane architecture. Beyond 100G, it is likely the next standard will be 400G based on extensions of 100G technologies. Beyond 400G, 1.6T is a possible standard, requiring highly novel technologies. © 2012 IEEE. Source


Patent
Finisar | Date: 2015-08-12

This disclosure generally relates to high-speed fiber optic networks that use light signals to transmit data over a network. The disclosed subject matter includes devices and methods relating to ferrule assemblies and/or ferrule alignment assemblies. In some aspects, the disclosed devices and methods may relate to a ferrule assembly including: optical fibers, an upper clamp member and a lower clamp member configured to retain the optical fibers that are positioned between the upper and lower clamp members, and a ferrule body surrounding at least a portion of the upper and lower clamp members; and an alignment sleeve including a sleeve cavity configured to receive the ferrule body such that the ferrule assembly is capable of being longitudinally repositioned with respect to the alignment sleeve.
