Highlights Oclaro's Leadership Position in High-Volume CFP/CFP2 Shipments

CANNES, France and SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Oclaro, Inc. (NASDAQ: OCLR), a leading provider and innovator of optical communications solutions, today announced it is increasing investment in 100G manufacturing capacity to support the growing demand of 100G client-side pluggable optics. This increased investment has been driven by the company's successful introduction of 100G client side interfaces in the CFP/CFP2 form factors, and will enable Oclaro to support the existing 100G form factors along with higher density form factors that will be shipping in 2015 and beyond. Complementing this announcement, Oclaro also announced today its second-generation CFP2 transceiver, which has been sampling to key customers and is expected to enter volume production in Q4 2014.

"By continuing to make key investments in manufacturing capacity and new product development, Oclaro is well positioned to lead the transition from CFP to CFP2 as more customers demand the higher density, lower cost and lower power consumption enabled by CFP2 designs," said Adam Carter, Chief Commercial Officer at Oclaro. "Our customers benefit greatly from Oclaro's long history of delivering CFP/CFP2 solutions, which enables us to provide industry-leading quality, continued cost competiveness and product improvements for datacenter 100G and service provider dual-rate applications."

Oclaro will be showcasing its complete line-up of LR4 CFP and CFP2 solutions at this week's ECOC tradeshow in Cannes, France in the Oclaro booth #MR7.

About the Second-Generation CFP2
Oclaro's second-generation CFP2 features very high performance at OTU4 rates as a result of the company's in-house expertise in EML technology. EML has emerged as a critical requirement for Oclaro customers because of its superior dual-rate performance and Oclaro has included this feature in its new designs to meet this demand. 

The new Oclaro CFP2 transceiver highlights Oclaro's commitment to continually improve the features and functionality of its CFP2 designs with next generation solutions. These continued innovations are helping Oclaro drive the adoption of 100G client interfaces in core applications such as switching, routing and aggregation in data centers, internet exchanges and service provider peering points, where longer reach and high-density 100G connections are required to meet the growing bandwidth demands.
