"A perfect 5.0 score should be all a user needs to know about this product," said Rob Stuehrk, Publisher of Lightwave. One of the judges commented, "This 200G Coherent SoC, is truly groundbreaking, breathtaking and revolutionary and ushers in an entire new era in optical communications."
"This technology sets the gold standard for the Innovation Awards Optical Components section -- and the program in general," said Stuehrk. "It is rare to see a perfect score -- ClariPhy is a clear innovator and solves the bandwidth ceiling Ethernet was running into. Our congratulations to ClariPhy for their achievement in this year's LW Innovation Reviews."
ClariPhy's CL20010 LightSpeed-II Coherent SoC received a perfect 5.0 score and was the only electronics awarded a perfect score. The 2016 Lightwave Innovation Reviews program, is one of the most prestigious award programs in the optical communications industry. The awards cover eight product categories and products are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industry executives and analysts. Submissions are evaluated for: originality, innovation, positive impact on the customer, how well they address a new or existing requirement, novelty of approach and cost-effectiveness. More information about the 2016 Lightwave Innovation Awards elite scores are available here.
"This prestigious recognition by pioneers in the optical industry further validates ClariPhy's market leading innovation," said Dr. Oscar Agazzi, SVP of engineering and chief architect at ClariPhy. "This endorsement substantiates our execution prowess towards setting an industry leading performance benchmark. Our LightSpeed-II Coherent SoC delivers the performance, flexibility and scalability needed to drive multi-terabit capacity across optical networks."
ClariPhy's LightSpeed-II CL20010 was the industry's first 28nm multimode coherent ASSP offering programmable modulation critical in deployment of software defined networks supporting 400G, 200G and 100G transport. The LightSpeed-II SoC delivers a multi-mode Flex Coherent solution by enabling 100G QPSK and 200G 16QAM modulation on a single wavelength, to drive dual-carrier 400G super channels. The Lightspeed-II has set an industry standard for best in class OSNR performance. The advanced equalization and forward error correction (FEC) algorithms enable systems to overcome the impairments of the optical link, including chromatic dispersion, polarization mode dispersion and bandwidth limitations of optoelectronic components.
