Featured Innovations and Product Demonstrations

  • 200G per Lane InP Components: Lumentum extends its indium phosphide (InP) transceiver component leadership with its new 200G Lens Integrated Photodiode (LIPD) that supports operation up to 200 Gbps per lane, enabling next-generation 800G and 1.6T optical transceivers for large-scale AI and ML applications. Featuring high responsivity and bandwidth, the 200G LIPD is designed for seamless integration with flip-chip bonding techniques and is now available for sampling. The 200G LIPD complements Lumentum’s high-volume, production ready 200G externally modulated lasers (EMLs), giving optical transceiver manufacturers best-in-class transmit and receive components for their next-generation 800G and 1.6T solutions.
  • Ultra-High Power 400 mW 1310 nm DFB Laser: Marking a milestone in semiconductor laser technology, Lumentum introduces an ultra-high output power 1310 nm DFB laser capable of delivering 400 mW of optical power at 50°C. This beta release is designed for co-packaged optics and silicon photonic 800G and 1.6T transceiver applications, offering a solution to reduce the required number of lasers, boosting power efficiency and reliability in large scale AI and ML infrastructure. Lumentum will demonstrate its ultra-high power 1310 nm DFB laser at its booth.
  • Data Center Connectivity Demo including Linear Receiver AOC: Lumentum will demonstrate data center connectivity scenarios with a 51T switch, a server with a 4x100G NIC, and several of its Cloud Light™ 800G optical modules operating in a loopback configuration. The performance of a linear receive-only AOC connecting an 800G switch port and the server NIC will be shown in the demonstration.
  • 400G QSFP112 DR1.2: Lumentum will also demonstrate its Cloud Light 400G QSFP112 DR1.2 module, which features a 4x100G electrical interface and produces two wavelengths (1290 nm and 1310 nm), each operating at 200G.
  • 400/800ZR+ Modules: Lumentum will demonstrate its 800ZR+ OSFP module operating at 118 GBaud 16 QAM. Designed to be used in direct router interface applications, performance will be demonstrated over a more than 400 km amplified optical link, highlighting the suitability for extended DCI and metro applications. In addition, a high power 400ZR+ QSFP-DD will be operated over the same link, showing the high performance possible in current long-haul networks using pluggable modules.
  • OIF 400ZR/800ZR Interoperability and CMIS: At OIF's booth #1323, Lumentum will highlight the interoperability of its 800ZR and 400ZR transceivers with QSFP-DD and OSFP equipped switches and routers for IP over DWDM, supporting up to 800 Gbps and complying with OIF standards. Additionally, demonstrations of Lumentum's OpenZR+ and 400ZR QSFP-DD transceivers will emphasize the benefits of the CMIS standard for efficient module management and interoperability, enabling precise control over status, optical channels, and power across various applications.
  • D22 Series Pump Module: This state-of-the-art, dual-chip 980 nm pump laser module offers individual control over each emitter. It integrates Lumentum’s highly reliable and efficient 980 nm diode lasers into a compact, hermetically sealed design, delivering exceptional optical power density. The D22 series provides a noise-free, narrowband spectrum and maintains peak performance across various temperatures and current levels. It is ideally suited for applications demanding superior spectrum control and high-power output, offering up to 2x1100 mW.
  • 49M Series Multimode Pump Module: Available with 4 or 6 emitters at 980 nm, the 49M series delivers powerful output of 40 W or 60 W while maintaining a compact footprint. Its innovative design simplifies thermal management, supporting both air- and water-cooling systems. This versatility makes the 49M Series perfect for a range of applications, including vacuum, space, and terrestrial EDFA pumping.
  • Tunable SFP28 ER Module: Designed for industrial temperatures, this high-performance optical transceiver supports 25 Gbps DWDM links over distances up to 40 km. It offers a compelling upgrade for cable MSOs facing increasing bandwidth demands driven by DOCSIS 4.0 and FTTH deployments. Additionally, it enhances 5G transport network connectivity, leveraging existing C-band fiber infrastructure. Lumentum will demonstrate the capabilities of this new Tunable SFP28 ER module at its booth.
