Mobile communication systems worldwide are being required to handle increasing data communication volume due to the transition from 4G to 5G, the spread of mobile terminals including smartphones and tablets, and the shift of information to the cloud. The expansion of 5G mobile networks will require the transmission of huge volumes of data to/and from base stations in high-speed optical communication networks, which in turn will drive the demand for high-speed, low-power-consumption optical devices. The new 100Gbps EML CAN not only meets these requirements, it also contributes to greater efficiency in manufacturing optical transceivers. The new 100Gbps EML CAN utilizing the industry-standard TO-56 CAN package will be provided for 5G base stations.
