Opnext Expands 40Gbit/s 300-pin Transceiver Family; MSA-Compliant Transceiver Extends Company Leadership in 40G; Transceiver Offers Low Power Consumption and High Reliability.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Opnext, Inc., a global leader in high-performance optical components, today announced an addition to its TRV7B10 product family of 40Gbit/s Optical Transceiver modules. The TRV7B10 module series, which expands Opnext's 300-pin transceiver family, offers low power consumption of 20W typically, allowing less strain for broader telecom and datacom applications. The product, which offers a high level of integration, minimizing management complexity as well as costs, by reducing the number of ports through its 40Gbit/s interface, will be on display at the OFC/NFOEC Conference in Anaheim, CA, March 8 - 10.

"Opnext has continually taken a lead to drive 40G transmission. As the demand for bandwidth increases, 40G interface capabilities become even more necessary," stated Minoru Maeda, Opnext chief technical officer. "This module, which helps our customers to achieve compact size with minimal management complexity, is the latest example of our long-term commitment to continually offer the latest technological developments to our customers."

The new module is fully compliant to the 300-pin MSA and ITU-T G.693 for Optical Interface, OIF SFI-5 standards and includes a MUX/DMUX for Optical Interface with STM and 300-pin MSA connector and pin assignment enabling easy module upgrades. This module supports MSA I2C interface utilized for simple control and continuous monitoring on module operation.

The TRV7B10 module is built upon Opnext's proven optical device technology. Since being the first company to demonstrate 40G transmission at ECOC 2001, Opnext has demonstrated industry leadership in 40G transmission.

Opnext's new 40G/300-pin transceiver will be on display in booth 1313 from March 8-10 at OFC/NFOEC 2005 in Anaheim, CA. Product samples of the TRV7B10, the next phase in 40G transmission technology, are currently available for sale. Contact an Opnext sales representative for further information.
