Long Haul Optical

Delivering high capacity and industry-leading performance

Lumentum products enable flexibility and scalability of long-haul networks—from TrueFlex transport modules and tunable transmission modules to optical transceivers and pump lasers. Our products provide dynamic connectivity for the broadest range of communication channels supporting the continual demand for lower-cost capacity.

Our TrueFlex colorless/directionless (CD) and colorless/directionless/ contentionless (CDC) ROADM architectures are key enablers towards the goal of realizing a scalable and dynamic network. Functional integration—a holistic approach that brings together diverse transport functionality such as optical switching, amplification, and monitoring onto a single high-density line card such as the ROADM-on-a-Blade—helps you realize the full potential of your network.

Lumentum offers a broad line of pump lasers for optical amplification. The 980 nm products that are used in erbium-doped fiber amplifiers offer operating power levels from 100 mW to 950 mW. The S26, S27, and S28 series are semi-cooled at 45°C for laser diode operation, which provides for a significant reduction in TEC and overall power consumption. The S30 and S31 pump laser modules leverage a revolutionary design and lean manufacturing processes to significantly advance the performance and scalability of 980 nm pumps. The modules meet stringent telecommunications industry requirements, including Telcordia GR-468-CORE for hermetic 980 nm pump modules.

Raman pump laser Series S34, S35, and S36 are wavelength selected using grating-stabilized, polarization maintaining (PM) fiber and are housed in an industry-standard, 14-pin butterfly package. Power options vary from 300 mW to 600 mW covering wavelengths from 1420 to 1510 nm.

Our tunable portfolio covers the broadest range of tunable transmission products including a narrow linewidth integrable tunable laser assembly (ITLA), a dual channel intradyne coherent receiver (ICR), a 40G DP-QPSK coherent transponder, high-performance, OIF-compliant modulators, and a wide range of tunable XFP and world-leading tunable SFP+ products for meeting ever-increasing bandwidth demands.

Our whiteboxes offer users the flexibility of constructing their own need-based transport systems using standalone photonic-layer building blocks that are independently addressable and controllable through standardized APIs.
