Fujitsu and Furukawa Jointly Develop Integrated Receivers for 40Gbps and 100Gbps Optical Networks

Fujitsu and Furukawa today announced to jointly develop 40Gbps and 100Gbps integrated receivers. 40Gbps receivers will be used in 40Gbps optical networks whose deployment is growing constantly on a global scale; 100Gbps receivers will be used for next-generation 100Gbps optical networks. By speeding up its product development process, Fujitsu will deliver compact, energy-efficient and low-price integrated receiver for ultra-high-speed optical networks.

By strengthening PLC technology of the optical interferometric circuits for receiver, Furukawa will market the product as a key device for next-generation optical communications.
