Cost Effective, Highly Reliable Lasers Support Next-Gen Data Transfer

Ithaca, New York - September 10, 2014 –BinOptics, a leading provider of  lasers for Data Centers, Mobile Backhaul, Access and Silicon Photonics, today announced the availability of 25G lasers at four wavelengths (1270, 1290, 1310 and 1330nm), allowing 100G solutions for Data Centers through course wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM).

Trends such as cloud computing and streaming video have fueled a rapid increase in bandwidth demands from Data Centers. Compared to 10G and 40G, 100G solutions provide an increase in data transfer with lower power consumption per bit of transferred data.

Earlier this year, an Infonetics Research analyst said: “40G alone will easily pass $1 billion in revenue this year as it becomes the technology of choice in the Data Center.” Infonetics analysts also expect the 100G market to gain critical mass in 2015.

“Our team has been focused on 100G needs of Data Centers for some time and, today, we are delighted to announce the availability of our 25G lasers at four wavelengths to address this market need,” said Alex Behfar, CEO and co-founder of BinOptics Corporation. “Our 25G CWDM lasers can meet the demand for lower power consumption in data transfer, allowing increased bandwidth and density in Data Centers.”

BinOptics’ 25G Distributed Feedback (DFB) laser diodes are designed to operate from 0 to 70°C temperature with low power consumption. These products utilize BinOptics’ proprietary Etched Facet Technology for exceptional reliability and performance, while offering a cost effective solution.

127, 129, 131, and 133 D-25x-Lxx11 products are now sampling and are expected to be in full production by the end of the year. For more information, visit
