Optical Transceivers

Leading the way to 100G and beyond

An industry leader in next-generation active optical modules, Lumentum meets the needs of diverse data-rate and reach requirements with a variety of pluggable transceivers using 850, 1310, and 1550 nm lasers. These include 4/2/1G SFP, 10G XFP, 16/10/8/6G SFP+, 40G QSFP+, and 100G CFP2, CFP4 and QSFP28 modules along with optical components for various reaches. 

Lumentum optical transceiver products support multiple network protocols including Fibre Channel, Gigabit Ethernet, and SONET/SDH.

Vertical Integration Results in Flexibility, Scalability

Lumentum’s vertically integrated portfolio uses internal vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs), edge emitting lasers, and IC designs which lower costs and speed time-to-market. With vertical integration, Lumentum optimizes its components for best-in-class transceiver performance, creating flexible and scalable platforms that address ever-changing market conditions and product migrations.

To ensure field reliability, Lumentum uses only the best materials and processes, including a stringent proprietary burn-in process during construction of internal VCSELs.

All of these factors ensure that Lumentum customers have access to a broad range of high-quality optical transceiver product families for all high data-rate applications.
