Finisar Showcases Optical Interconnect Portfolio for HPC Applications at ISC'14

Optics Leader Also Demonstrates New 100G Quadwire(R) EDR Active Optical Cable for Next Generation of Supercomputers

SUNNYVALE, CA and LEIPZIG, GERMANY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/23/14 -- Finisar Corporation (NASDAQ: FNSR) today announced that it will display its market-leading product portfolio of optical interconnects, optimized for demanding High-Performance Computing (HPC) applications, at the International Supercomputing Conference 2014 (ISC'14). These optical interconnects, based on 10G, 14G, and 25G per channel solutions, leverage Finisar's patented fiber optic technology for the transmission of high-speed data with enhanced signal integrity, higher density, lower power consumption, smaller bend radius and longer reach than traditional copper solutions. Finisar will also feature a live demonstration of its next generation 100 Gb/s Quadwire ® Active Optical Cable (AOC). The 100G Quadwire AOC is based on the industry-standard QSFP28 module form factor, running four parallel lanes of 25 Gb/s to enable the next generation of InfiniBand EDR-based supercomputers. See Finisar's interconnect portfolio and live AOC demonstration at booth #462 from June 23-25 at ISC'14 in Leipzig, Germany.

Finisar's display of world class optical interconnects will include 10G SFP+, 40G QSFP+, 100G QSFP28, and 100G CXP hot pluggable transceivers; 10G, 40G, 56G and 100G Active Optical Cables; and 120G to 600G Board-mounted Optical Assembly (BOA) products. These products support all common communication protocols including InfiniBand, Ethernet, SAS, PCIe, and Fibre Channel, and can be used in a wide range of applications including High-Performance Computing and Next Generation Data Centers.

"As the world's largest supplier of optical communication components and subsystems, we are extremely pleased to display our family of optical interconnects this year at ISC," said Steffen Koehler, senior product line manager at Finisar Corporation. "Our live demonstration of the 100G Quadwire active cable for InfiniBand EDR and 100G Ethernet clearly shows our continued focus to expand our portfolio of high-speed optics into the HPC and datacenter markets, leveraging Finisar's world class internal VCSEL technology."

The 100G Quadwire AOC is currently sampling. For more information about this and other interconnect products powering the next generation of HPC applications, visit www.finisaropticsforhpc.com. For additional details about ISC'14, visit www.isc-events.com/isc14/#.

You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. But what about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today's databases are anything but agile - they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application an...
