San Diego, California, March 8, 2023

OFC 2023, Booth 3229 – OFS, a leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of innovative fiber optic network products will showcase continued technical and industry leadership in a series of events at the annual OFC in San Diego, California from March 5 – 9, 2023.

OFS and its parent company, Furukawa Electric Co. Ltd., will showcase more than twenty invited and
contributed technical papers, panel leadership, and short course organizers ranging from optical design to sensing with a full listing available here https://www.ofsoptics.com/wp-content/uploads/OFCSpeakerSessions-scaled.jpg.
OFS has partnered on multiple OFC demonstrations including:

  • In collaboration with OFS partners in the Terabit BiDi MSA group, 800G BiDi performance is
    demonstrated over 100m of OFS multimode fiber at OFC ’23 in the Broadcom booth 6425.
  • Demonstration of 100G/lane linear drive over OFS high-speed optical fiber link enabling green alloptical connectivity for datacenter at Macom booth 3927.
  • Coordinated demonstration through NTT and part of Open Network (including Open ROADM and
    Open ZR+ demonstration ) in association with OFCnet. In open architecture, it is essential to
    maximize OSNR in the amplified link to ensure the best performance and increase information
    capacity. OFS provided 1,000 km of ULL (Ultra Low Loss) fiber for a bi-directional live transmission
    demonstration employing multiple vendor 400Gb/s pluggable modules at IOWN networking hub
    booth 6440.
  • Coordinated booth-to-booth quantum bit transmission between Ciena optical gear and Qubitekk
    quantum equipment includes 1 km OFS 2-fiber standard fiber patch cable for the support of a public channel, and 1 km of a 2-fiber polarization-maintaining fiber upjacketed cordage to support qubit transmission.
