Furukawa Electric Group to exhibit next generation technologies at OFC 2023 (#3229)

March 3, 2023

  • Furukawa Electric will exhibit at OFC 2023, to be held in the United States on March 7 - 9, 2023
  • High performance connectors, laser products, a Forward Raman Unit and technology related to CPO will be introduced
  • We will exhibit Multicore fibers, FI/FO devices, connectors for multicore fiber and fusion splicers for multicore fibers

Furukawa Electric Co., Ltd. (Head office: 2-6-4 Otemachi, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; President: Keiichi Kobayashi) will exhibit at OFC (Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition) 2023, the world’s largest optical communications exhibition to be held in San Diego, California on March 7 - 9, 2023 (Technical conference will begin on March 5).

Optical components and future technologies

At OFC 2023, we will exhibit high performance optical connectors, optical laser products and a Forward Raman Unit. In addition to these, we will introduce our initiatives for CPO (Co-Packaged Optics) directed at the realization of photonics-electronics convergence.

Optical fiber related products to upgrade the telecom network

Furukawa Electric and OFS Fitel, LLC, a member of Furukawa Electric Group, are working together to develop optical fiber related products. We will exhibit an O-band amplifier, 4 core multicore fibers(note), FI/FO devices, optical connectors for multicore fibers and fusion splicers for multicore fiber.

Technical Presentation

At the technical conference, we will give presentations in technical sessions about multicore fibers, nonlinear fibers, new amplification technology and laser sources for silicon photonics.
