WaveLogic 5: A spectrum of solutions. Your choice.

Ciena Optical Microsystem’s portfolio of mountable and pluggable coherent optical modules covers the full range of next-generation transport applications from access to submarine. Ciena’s WaveLogic™ 5 Extreme 800G Transponder Module delivers an industry- leading solution for high- bandwidth, high-performance, multi-haul line-side DWDM transmission in a compact, mountable form for both telecom and data centre applications. Programmable capacity enables a wide range of applications—from 800G DCI and 600G metro to 400G regional, long-haul, and submarine—allowing operators to carry 400GbE anywhere in their networks. Multi-baud extends the

cost-efficiencies of high- performance coherent optics to both flexible grid and fixed grid long-haul networks, allowing for 600G regional and 400G long-haul transport within 100GHz channel- spacing. Availability of both C- and L-band transponders allows for doubling of traffic capacity per fibre, maximizing return on investment of existing fibre assets. FAMILY OF COHERENT PLUGGABLES Ciena’s WaveLogic 5 Nano transceivers are the result of continued investments in vertical integration and innovation in component- level design, providing cost-efficiencies for new network applications. Ciena is uniquely positioned to

Platform Solution Key Features: • Inphi’s complete silicon photonics transceiver with four low-loss, transmit Mach-Zehnder modulators and four high-responsivity, receive photodiodes • Low-power, flip chip TIA with excellent sensitivity, overload, and error floor • Analog controller IC which replaces multiple discrete components for laser bias, configuration and monitoring of silicon photonics, and TIA control • Inphi’s Porrima Gen3 low-power, PAM4 DSP with integrated 56Gbaud laser driver (previously announced: Porrima Gen3 press release) “Cloud Light is a premier supplier of advanced optical modules for data centre interconnect and has a strong heritage of design

Inphi Corporation (NASDAQ: IPHI), a leader in high- speed data movement interconnects, today announced the sampling of its next-generation 400G DR4 silicon photonics platform solution which includes a silicon photonics integrated circuit (PIC), a flip chip transimpedance

from an Inphi fab partner and will be able to continue with high-volume wafer scale manufacturing and 3-D heterogenous integration in their own factories. This innovative business model brings silicon wafer scale manufacturing to the optics industry to enable faster ramp and lower cost per bit. “Inphi has been the leading force to define and create a PAM4 ecosystem of optical modules for cloud and data centre networks,” said Dr. Loi Nguyen, Founder and SVP, Optical Interconnect at Inphi. “I believe today’s announcement will mark the beginning of a new era of the ‘fabless optics’ industry. Optical transceiver manufacturers can leverage silicon high volume wafer scale in the manufacturing of transceivers without owning a fab.” 400G DR Silicon Photonics
