Mitsubishi Electric 25Gbps EML CAN for 5G Mobile Base Stations Enables high-speed data transmission

Mitsubishi Electric announced today the launch of a 25Gbps EML CAN module supporting high-speed optical data transmission in radio access networks within fifth-generation (5G) mobile base stations. The introduction of 5G mobile networks will herald the transmission of huge volumes of data and the need for high-speed optical communication networks; this will in turn drive customer demand for high-speed optical devices with low power consumption. The new 25Gbps EML CAN unit addresses these requirements, and will help to improve the productivity and efficiency of customer installations.

The new module reduces the power consumption of thermo-electric coolers by 40 percent compared to the current FU-411REA model and improves the productivity of bi-directional optical modules and transceivers due to a simplified fabrication process. The new module will be on display at the China International Optoelectronic Exposition (CIOE) 2018 in Shenzhen, China, from September 5 to 8, and will be commercially available from November 1.
