10Gbps DWDM Can-type EML-TOSA

Mitsubishi Electric To Launch Can-Type Optical Transmitter Module For Mobile Networks –Jan 20, 2016–Tokyo, Japan (Techreleased) – Mitsubishi Electric Corporation announced today the coming launch of a 10 Gbps optical transmitter for high-speed, large-volume data transmission between base stations and central offices in radio access networks within mobile telecommunication systems.

10Gbps DWDM Can-type EML-TOSA

The module, which comprises an electro-absorption modulator laser (EML) and a transmitter optical sub-assembly (TOSA), reduces fluctuations in optical wavelengths for dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM). Mitsubishi Electric will commercially launch its new EML-TOSA on February 1.

The module, which complies with the 10 Gbps Miniature Device Multi Source Agreement (XMD-MSA), features a cylindrical can-type─not box-type─profile suitable for mass production.

In LTE and LTE-Advanced fourth-generation (4G) mobile systems, DWDM has attracted attention as a means of reducing the power consumption of optical transmitter modules that transmit data between base stations and central offices. Mitsubishi Electric’s new Can-type EML-TOSA is compatible with DWDM and its TOSA can operate in an industry-leading maximum temperature of up to 95 degrees Celsius.
