Ciena Corporation (NYSE:CIEN) has declared it is expanding the market of one of its industry-leading WaveLogic coherent technology by making it accessible to a wide range of industry leaders.
The latest news from NASDAQ confirms that optical component leaders Lumentum (LITE), NeoPhotonics (NPTN) and Oclaro (OCLR) will each influence Ciena’s WaveLogic technology to build consistent optical modules that will recommend industry-leading rates. This will optimize connections across a broad range of applications.
As a result, every company will become an element of an ecosystem centers on standards-based innovation. This will allow consumers to make options in the promising 400G pluggable market, which is determined by data center interconnect (DCI) necessities for greater range, advanced power effectiveness and low costs.
Ciena will deliver its WaveLogic Ai chipset to Lumentum, NeoPhotonics and Oclaro firms. The firm will however retain its intellectual property. The three will be accountable for manufacturing and retailing and delivery of Ciena-designed 5×7 coherent components by combining both WaveLogic and electro-optics modules.
Also the companies will independently contribute to the improvement of 400G pluggable technologies and the creation of specifications in advance of significant industry forums and standards-setting bodies.
