Oplink to Unveil Its 100G CFP2 Transceiver at OFC/NFOEC 2013

FREMONT, Calif., March 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oplink Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:OPLK), a leading provider of photonic telecommunications components, intelligent modules and subsystem solutions, today announced that it will unveil its 100G CFP2 transceiver solution at OFC/NFOEC 2013.

Designed to support both 100GbE LR4 and OTU4 10km applications, Oplink's 100G CFP2 transceiver has a smaller size and lower power usage compared to 100G CFP transceivers that are currently being deployed. Its smaller size and higher performance enable high density switch, router and transport equipment to support bandwidth upgrade requirements more cost-effectively.

"This new 100G CFP2 transceiver nicely complements our other 100G solutions, including our 10x10 40km CFP and our 4x28G DWDM CFP," commented Dr. Rang-Chen Yu, Vice President of Business Development of Oplink. "This product highlights Oplink's continued commitment to develop leading edge 100G solutions to accommodate increasing bandwidth demands being driven by next-generation mobile Internet applications."

The live demo of the CFP2 transceiver will be showcased together with Oplink's 10x10 40km CFP and Twin Multicast Switch. Oplink will also have on display highlighted products from its broad portfolio of optical products, including its latest WSS, amplifiers, passive devices and advanced transceiver solutions. Visit Oplink at OFC/NFOEC 2013, March 19-21, at the Anaheim Convention Center, Booth #2901.
