Acacia’s Comprehensive Coherent Pluggable Portfolio

HellermannTyton is an established and innovative global leader in the provision of fibre network infrastructure solutions, delivering a broad range of quality, high performance connectivity for both residential and commercial use. HellermannTyton

Leveraging its 3D Siliconization approach,

which utilizes high-volume

manufacturing processes and Acacia’s mature silicon photonics technology, Acacia offers a complete

and improved total cost of ownership that coherent has to offer. • For 5G wireless and enterprise services, the 100G coherent

portfolio of coherent pluggable solutions for network operators to address increasing bandwidth demand.

dedicated point-to-point pluggable in the QSFP-DD

supply a range of quality FTTX solutions for ‘to the home’ and ‘to the building’ fibre connections. With pole and wall mounted multi fibre connection enclosures and a good selection of customer connection points, HellermannTyton have a solution for every fibre application. The AFN and FFE are 24 and 12 fibre enclosures both designed for deployment in the FTTX network. Both can be wall or pole mounted and can be used in point to point (P2P) and point to multi point (P2MP) applications. These 2 products offer flexibility and are available in a number of configurations. The MCCE is a smaller fibre enclosure, designed as a building entry point (BEP) provides a

form factor enables operators to scale to higher data rates to meet growing bandwidth demands over unamplified links up to 120km. • For cable and 5G wireless

fibre termination and network demarcation point external to connected property in a fibre to the home (FTTH) network. The CCE is another BEP solution with fibre storage capacity and has a rear port for a ‘through the wall’ customer connection. The customer connection point (CCP) from HellermannTyton has developed and evolved quickly over a short period of time to offer more options and flexibility at the building entry. The CCP can be wall mounted or placed in buried chamber (or toby box) at the property, providing an external building entry point and network test point. For more information visit

400G Solutions for DCI, Access Aggregation, Metro, and Long-Haul Applications This portfolio features an expansive list of interoperability modes (400ZR, OpenZR+, Open ROADM MSA and CableLabs Coherent Optics Physical Layer Specification), and is offered in QSFP-DD, OSFP and CFP2 form factors. 100G Solutions for Edge and Access With 5G and edge computing roll outs, the time is right for coherent optics to take the next step and migrate to service provider edge and access network applications. This market can benefit from the scalability, operational simplicity

X-haul applications, the coherent bi-directional

pluggable optical module in CFP2 form factor is designed to transmit and receive data in both directions on a single fiber for 100G+. • For cable/fiber deep and 5G Wireless X-haul applications, the 100G coherent DWDM module in QSFP-DD form factor provides a scalable upgrade path to migrate from 10G to 100G links.

Extended 28 Gbd Avalanche Photodiode (APD) Portfolio by Albis Optoelectronics

At the upcoming ECOC exhibition Albis will present its new 28 Gbd APD chip APD20E1. A key feature of this innovative APD is a large dynamic range and a high optical damage threshold up to +5 dBm. The APD chip provides low noise multiplication and a high gain-bandwidth product which enables the design of high sensitivity 25G receivers. Typical applications include 28 Gbaud PAM-4, 100GBASE-ER4 and 25G EPON. APD20E1 is a top-side illuminated 28 Gbd APD chip featuring a Y-shaped contact pad layout optimized for wire-bonding. The small footprint saves valuable

speed photodiodes. For more than 15 years, the company has offered the broadest portfolio of Telcordia qualified InP and GaAs photodiodes for datacom and telecom applications in the industry. All photodiode products are manufactured in-house in Albis’ dedicated clean- room facilities. Product highlights include: PIN

space in small packages such as TO-headers. Further 28 Gbd APD solutions include bottom-illuminated, 28 Gbd APD chips with integrated backside lens. The integrated backside lens focuses the incoming light beam on the topside detecting area, enabling an easy and efficient optical coupling. For example, APS20D1 consists of an APD20D1 chip flip- chip soldered onto a metallized ceramic carrier with a coplanar GSG or a Y-shaped contact pad layout. The large pads allow placement of multiple bonds. Albis Optoelectronics is a leading designer, developer and manufacturer of high-

applications. Side-illuminated monitor diodes and monitor diode arrays. Photodiodes with integrated lenses and optical filters. And last but not least hermetically packaged, short and long wavelength microwave photodetectors up to 30 GHz.

photodiodes for 10G, 25G and 40G digital and analog receivers. High power photodiodes and packaged photodetectors. Low bias APDs for 2.5G and 10G OLT/ ONUs. 25G APDs for 28 Gbaud PAM-4 and 100GBASE-ER4
