The 16G Market Is Here!

The 16G market has arrived and we are happy to announce that Finisar is shipping lots of 16 Gb/s Fibre Channel transceivers. We have now shipped 16 Gb/s transceivers in volumes of multiple tens-of-thousands. Our portfolio includes both shortwave and longwave modules; these provide an important part of the core foundation of next-generation Storage Area Network (SAN) equipment for 100 meter and 10 km applications. With the achievement of this milestone, Finisar is well-positioned to continue to serve as the foremost supplier of transceivers for the SAN market.

Finisar’s 16 Gb/s Fibre Channel SFP+ transceiver modules provide superior value to customers:
• IC integration gives way to the industry’s highest performance module with the lowest power dissipation
• MSA-compliant while supporting special customization to enhance customer system value
• Total solution – Finisar is the only supplier offering both shortwave and longwave solutions in volume.

We have leveraged our experience in delivering 8 Gb/s Fibre Channel transceivers in high volume to develop and manufacture our 16 Gb/s transceivers. With in-house IC capabilities, high volume capacity, and vertical integration technology, Finisar offers customers the security of supply continuity by eliminating the single-source availability issues faced by its competitors.
