The integration of the micro ITLA into optical digital coherent transmission equipment is now available to telecommunications carriers, supporting more efficient next generation transmission systems.

“The telecommunications industry is accelerating the deployment of 100 Gb/s, or even faster 400 Gb/s, transmission systems,” says Hiro Matsushita, GM, FITEL Division of Furukawa Electric. “These new systems use multilevel modulation like 16-QAM for achieving 400Gb/s, as well as elastic spectrum allocation to improve the spectral efficiency of the network. A more efficient micro ITLA is critical for such new complex and high-performing systems.”

The Furukawa micro ITLA is a laser light source that has been made smaller and consumes less electric power, while complying with the same Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) standard as the conventional ITLA. Furukawa Electric has developed the micro ITLA with a narrower line width, a finer wavelength grid and better wavelength stability, which are required for higher speed digital coherent transmission and flexible grid in the elastic optical network technology.

Innovation in Furukawa manufacturing technologies has enabled the size reduction of the micro ITLA to 37.5 x 20 x 7.5 mm, half the size of a conventional ITLA. In addition, power consumption was reduced by 30% in comparison with that of conventional ITLAs, driven by performance improvements in the laser chip.
