Move data at speeds of up to 100 gigabits per second with new SCHOTT TO PLUS® headers
Monday, 27 February 2023 , San Diego , United States
- Drawing on over 50 years of experience in transistor outline (TO) technology, SCHOTT created pioneering 50G TO PLUS® headers for the optical communication industry.
- SCHOTT will showcase its new high-speed products at OFC, March 7-9 in San Diego.
- The innovative 50G TO platform is available in various headers for datacom and next-generation passive optical networks (PON) applications.
Moving data faster
Tomorrow’s optical networks will make it possible to download or stream large files from anywhere with extremely low latency. To make this happen, the data centers that form the internet’s backbone must be upgraded with new technology that has unprecedented levels of speed, reliability, and performance.
For data transfer, the key metric is how much data can be transported over a single fiber. The revolutionary 50G TO PLUS® technology enables an unmatched transmission speed of 50G non-return to zero (NRZ), meaning twice as much data can travel over a single fiber as previously possible. What’s more, the 50G TO package is also more economical than using a box package.
Such speed can be further accelerated by combining the 50G TO with 4-level pulse amplitude modulation (PAM4) technology. This makes it possible to transmit up to 100 gigabits per second over a single fiber, paving the way for significantly higher bandwidth for data communication networks.
Ready for next-generation PON
The rapid increase in consumer demand for high-speed internet and the surge of residential optic fiber service has prompted the development of next-generation PON, the last-mile connection that brings the internet to our homes and businesses. SCHOTT's 50G platform is now avaiable for TO headers which include thermoelectric coolers(TEC), enabling unprecedented transmission speed of 50 gigabits per second for a single channel. SCHOTT TO PLUS® headers deliver the highest reliability and enable unprecedented bandwidths, enabling tomorrow’s fiber broadband communication networks.
At OFC, SCHOTT will also display TO packaging products used in non-communication fields, such as lidar systems, sensors and other applications. Come see us in the San Diego Convention Center, Hall D, Booth No. 4150.
