AC100-MSA Product Family

Our AC100-MSA product family is the first coherent 100 Gbps module available to the industry. It is a highly capable, scalable and cost efficient alternative to 40 Gbps direct detect solutions. Supporting the 5″ x 7″ form factor defined by the Optical Internetworking Forum, these modules bring coherent technology into the mainstream. By using products based on Acacia DSP technology, transport vendors can introduce coherent interfaces without the cost of internal ASIC development.

Introducing soft decision forward error correction to the industry, these modules meet the performance requirements of both long haul and submarine applications. As Acacia’s silicon PIC technology became available, the AC100-MSA was the first platform to adopt it.

AC100-MSA modules are predominantly used in legacy metro and long haul applications.
