HUBER+SUHNER’s Smallest Outdoor Fibre Optic Connector

capacity to the network, reducing the cost per bit. The connector is waterproof, dust- proof and corrosion resistant and provides the maximum safety for outdoor installations. It features a robust push-pull coupling mechanism and an extension connector for cable chaining, making the solution fast and easy to install. The Q-ODC-2 Mini also overcomes the challenge of high system sensitivity and increases reliability. This opens up new areas of application for fibre optics in a number of industries, such as wind energy, railway and shipbuilding.

HUBER+SUHNER’s Q-ODC-2 Mini fibre optic connector is the smallest in the company’s portfolio. The aim is to enable more cost-effective, flexible and higher capacity deployments of new wireless infrastructure in industrial and communication applications. Featuring a compact design, this size-optimised connector reduces dimensions by 50% and weight by 40% when compared to the Q-ODC-2 outdoor connector from HUBER+SUHNER. These smaller proportions allow wireless infrastructure

physical space,” said Carsten Dieckmann, Product Manager at HUBER+SUHNER. “The product adds to our portfolio of fibre optic solutions that are suitable for complex applications with high data rates as network providers look to meet the demand for more capacity at a lower cost per bit.”

“As our smallest outdoor fibre optic connector to date, the Q-ODC-2 Mini addresses critical challenges in the planning, building and operation of new wireless infrastructure deployments by providing an affordable solution that is simple to install and takes up the minimum amount of

Narrow Linewidth LIDAR Laser From Applied Optoelectronics

Optelian’s multi-service disaggregated platform

Applied Optoelectronics’ high power and narrow linewidth laser is specifically designed for Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) applications, particularly for automotive use. Combining high optical output power with narrow linewidth further increases the detection range of a LIDAR system by increasing the coherence length of the laser output compared to similar lasers with wider linewidth. The lasers are intended to be used in Frequency- Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) LIDAR systems, which have better noise rejection compared to the more common amplitude modulated LIDAR systems available today. Applied Optoelectronics says that current automotive LIDAR systems are based on near infrared lasers, however these lasers are not eye safe and therefore are limited in terms of emitted power. This power limitation, in turn, restricts the effective sensing range of the LIDAR system. AOI’s laser operates at longer wavelengths near 1550-nm where eye-safe emission limits

Optelian’s multi-service, compact and hardened (OSP-compliant) platform is designed for multi- haul transport upgrades, remote business services access and fibre deep architectures. Purpose- built for where deployment flexibility and scalability of service growth can be unpredictable, the hardened platform is capable of being deployed in harsh environments where a temperature- controlled shelter or facility does not exist, while still providing next generation multi-service capability anywhere from 1G to 1.6T. The TMS-1190 is a platform that has been designed for reliability with extended life cycles in any environment. Its compact chassis, with shallow depth and 1RU height, supports up to four

multi-applications – hardened OSP support for transponders, muxponders and open line system configurations that can be mixed and matched in a single chassis or stacked, delivering very diverse and flexible deployment configurations. Optelian’s first DA (Deploy Anywhere) Series™ member, the TMX-4400, is an ideal DWDM transport solution for anyhaul deployment of hardened 100/200/400 GbE or OTU services. It interfaces a 100G to 400G QSFP28/ DD on the client side and a CFP2-DCO on the line side with software programmable DWDM modulation supporting operation from 100G to 400G, including openZR+, CableLabs® and openROADM standards.

are much higher and therefore detection distances are longer, making them better suited for real-world automotive sensors. “AOI’s expertise in semiconductor laser design and production has enabled us to offer this innovative narrow-linewidth laser,” said Dr. Fred Chang, AOI’s senior VP and GM. “The current automotive LIDAR systems have limitations imposed by the available lasers, and AOI’s new 1550-nm eye-safe laser will enable advanced FMCW LIDAR systems with improved detection range and accuracy, which are critical to advanced autonomous vehicle technology.”
