Evertz Microsystems Selects Ranovus’ 200G CFP2 Direct Detect Transceiver Products to Enhance IP Video Distribution Infrastructure and Services

Evertz is enabling the transition to IP video and is the de facto
industry standard for IP infrastructures with over 400 global
deployments of its “SDVN” technology

OTTAWA, Ontario–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/IPVideo?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#IPVideolt;/agt;–Ranovus
Inc., a leading provider of multi-terabit interconnect solutions for
data center and communications networks, today announced that Evertz
(TSX: ET), the global leader in media and entertainment
technology solutions, will deploy Ranovus’ 200G CFP2 Direct Detect
transceiver product into the Evertz “SDVN” (Software Defined Video
Networking) switch and routing infrastructure. Ranovus transceivers are
based on innovative quantum dot laser (QDL) and micro-ring resonator
Silicon Photonics technologies and are fully-qualified according to the
stringent Telcordia GR-468 specifications for opto-electronic devices.

“The explosion in video services for mobile and landline customers and
the evolution of new video formats, such as the rise of 4K and 8K UHDTV,
show no sign of stopping and our customers demand a state of the art and
robust infrastructure to support this growth,” said Rakesh Patel, CTO,
Evertz Technologies Ltd. “We currently use the SFP+, SFP28+ and QSFP28
form factor transceivers and Ranovus demonstrated that their 200G CFP2
transceivers work very well in a redundant and scalable switching
environment offering format agnostic, non-blocking, and ultra-low
latency connections for our applications, while offering a significant
cost advantage for our customers.”

With a capacity of up to 38.4 Terabits per rack of equipment, Ranovus
products will augment the capabilities of Evertz switch fabrics, which
are the overwhelming choice for Broadcasters transitioning to IP
infrastructures, which can process thousands of video streams in
multiple formats for multiple platforms. Evertz’ customers include
telephone, cable TV, satellite and IPTV providers and major broadcast
facilities around the world. The Ranovus module will facilitate robust
and cost-effective end-to-end scalable bandwidth connectivity on the
physical layer of the fiber networks and associated cloud infrastructure
connecting the Evertz distribution centers.

“According to the latest industry forecasts, more than 80% of the global
Internet traffic will be video by 2022 and the Content Delivery Networks
will deliver 90% of this video traffic. We are delighted to work with
Evertz, the global leader in the video Content Delivery Solutions, to
support the insatiable growth in the video traffic using our scalable
multi-wavelength QDL and micro-ring resonator Silicon Photonics platform
technologies,” said Hamid Arabzadeh, Chairman and CEO at Ranovus. “Our
qualified low latency, miniaturized and power efficient core technology
platform will support a new generation of protocol agnostic chip to
chip, server to server and switch to switch connectivity for the
hyperscale data centers as well as 5G mobility networks.”

Ranovus’ product portfolio has evolved from the company’s innovation in
delivering a multi-wavelength Quantum Dot Laser (QDL), Ring Resonator
based Silicon Photonic (SiP) modulators, Driver ICs as well as Receiver
building blocks. Other features include:

  • Fully compliant with Telcordia GR-468 Standard
  • DCI, metro access, 5G Mobility and multi-access edge computing
  • Transmission distances of 15km, 40km and 80km+
  • Platform capable of supporting Industrial Temperature Range
  • 96 DWDM channels in the C-band now and L-band in the future
  • 1.6 Tb/s 1RU Shelf Density
  • Form factor and compatible electrical interface with CFP2-DCO
  • 56Gb/s PAM4 PHY with multiple programmable FEC options to optimize
    link performance
  • Full diagnostics and self-monitoring capabilities to enable
    high-reliability networks
