ClariPhy Accelerates 400G Networks by Shipping its 200G Coherent Optical SoC to Customers

ECOC Exhibition – ClariPhy, a leading provider of the world’s fastest and most complex semiconductor solutions for scaling Internet bandwidth, today announced production shipments of its LightSpeed-II™ CL20010. The industry’s first 28nm coherent system-on-a-chip (SoC), the CL20010 accelerates Internet bandwidth for data centers, transport infrastructure and cloud-based networks. It is the only solution that delivers a multi-rate and multi-modulation architecture enabling true Software Defined Networking (SDN) at the physical layer. The CL20010’s configurable bandwidth supports data rates from 40G to 200G per wavelength, enabling the performance and scalability demanded by the rapidly changing network infrastructure marketplace.

“Widespread adoption of coherent technology in the metro and for datacenter applications is held back due to the cost of the solutions,” said Andrew Schmitt, Principal Analyst, Carrier Transport Networking at Infonetics Research. “Flexible modulations to increase the capacity of coherent links over short interfaces is a crucial competitive advantage and I believe ClariPhy is the first component supplier to ship this.”

Major telcos and data center operators worldwide are upgrading their optical transport infrastructure to address the global capacity crunch. Carriers worldwide are looking for scalable coherent transmission solutions at the lowest cost per bit. According to the June 2014 Cisco® Visual Networking Index, global Internet traffic in 2018 will be equivalent to 64 times the volume of the entire global Internet in 2005, with metro traffic surpassing long-haul traffic by 2015. 200G single-chip solutions, such as ClariPhy’s CL20010, that are agile, scalable, programmable and significantly reduce upgrade costs, are the ‘Holy Grail’ for data centers, transport infrastructure and cloud-based networks – underscoring the huge opportunity for companies that can successfully deliver such devices.

“We see strong market demand for 200G coherent solutions for applications in optical transport networks, new data centers and cloud-based networks, where advanced performance, network flexibility, and a rich feature set are required,” said Richard Craig, President of Oclaro's Integrated Photonics Business. “We are very excited that ClariPhy’s latest 200G coherent SoC exhibits excellent performance with Oclaro’s analog coherent CFP2 module. Several of our customers have expressed strong interest in solutions based on this combination since it provides them with the speed, efficiency, and scalability needed to meet their increasing bandwidth demands.”

“400G is a top priority for network operators as they look to deploy and scale their Internet infrastructure,” said Nariman Yousefi, CEO of ClariPhy. “Achieving production shipments of the CL20010 represents an important milestone and demonstrates ClariPhy’s unique ability to engineer advanced 200G and beyond coherent optical transport solutions that address stringent carrier requirements for increased performance, bandwidth, speed and reach, while interoperating with today’s transport infrastructure. We have generated a considerable amount of design momentum with OEMs and carrier networks worldwide.”

Key Features of the ClariPhy LightSpeed-II CL20010 SoC

ClariPhy’s LightSpeed-II CL20010 28nm multimode SoC offers unprecedented levels of integration, performance and SDN capabilities that allow the network to adapt in changes in traffic growth automatically. Its innovative design includes:

  • The industry’s first standard product SoC that supports 200G 16QAM modulation on a single wavelength, and that enables 400G dual-carrier super channels in 75GHz of DWDM spectrum.
  • An increase of 170% in fiber capacity and a reduction of 50% in cost per bit versus today’s 100G coherent systems.
  • Support for standard 100G QPSK modulation with the industry’s best OSNR performance, providing carriers the flexibility of using a single, software programmable line card for 200G and 400G transmission at distances exceeding 3500 kilometers.
  • A “one stop shop” approach, with all significant intellectual property developed by ClariPhy, providing ICs to customers with superior feature sets and accelerated time-to-market.

Availability

The CL20010 is shipping in production to multiple OEM customers, and has undergone successful trials at several Tier-1 carriers.
