EMCORE to Exhibit and Present Talk on Linear Fiber Optics in HFC Networks at ANGACOM 2017

The presentation entitled "Seeing the True Benefits of Linear Fiber Optics in HFC" will be held at the ANGACOM Speakers Corner, Wednesday, May 31st at 4:30 p.m.

ALHAMBRA, Calif., May 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EMCORE Corporation (NASDAQ:EMKR), a leading provider of advanced Mixed-Signal Optics products that provide the foundation for today's high-speed communication network infrastructures and leading-edge defense systems, announced today that it will exhibit at ANGACOM for the 10th consecutive year and will present a talk entitled "Seeing the True Benefits of Linear Fiber Optics in HFC" by Grant Olecko, Senior Product Line Director. The presentation will be held on Wednesday, May 31st at 4:30 p.m. at the ANGACOM Speakers Corner.

At ANGACOM, EMCORE will showcase its latest advancements in DOCSIS 3.1, 1550 nm CATV transmitters utilizing Linear Externally Modulated Laser (L-EMLTM) technology with its partner EQ Photonics GmbH in hall 8, booth #Q60 at the Cologne Congress Center, Cologne, Germany from May 30 — June 1.

Introduced at ANGACOM 2016, L-EMLTM-based transmitters have achieved qualification with major cable MSOs and are in volume production to meet rapidly growing demand. The new MEDALLION 8100 DOCSIS 3.1, L-EMLTM 1550 nm CATV Transmitter will be on display along with EMCORE's full system level portfolio for CATV broadband transmission including the MEDALLION 6100 DOCSIS 3.1 1550 nm CATV Transmitter, MEDALLION 7200 high-power CATV Fiber Amplifier and MEDALLION 2100 Optical A/B Switch.

In addition, EMCORE will introduce a new, compact 1.2 GHz, 1550 nm L-EMLTM -based mini-transmitter card subassembly designed for a range of CATV applications. This new "mini-Tx" subassembly will support links from 0 to 100 km and provides all the core elements required for designers to quickly integrate the L-EMLTM device technology into a variety of CATV transmitter platforms.
"The acceptance of our L-EML-based CATV transmitters has been tremendous since we introduced the series last year at ANGACOM and customers have asked us to expand on the form-factor options to allow them greater flexibility on how they integrate the technology into their platforms," said Grant Olecko, Senior Product Line Director at EMCORE. "In my presentation ‘Seeing the True Benefits of Linear Fiber Optics in HFC', I'll discuss some of the giant strides EMCORE has made to remove arguments of advantages of baseband digital links being evangelized by some in the industry, compared with linear fiber optics to the node."

At ANGACOM, EMCORE will also preview the latest in high-density laser package technology with the forthcoming EMCORE XMD which incorporates the Company's performance-leading and proven 1550 nm QAM laser technology into the ultra-compact XMD form-factor that is approximately 1/3 the size of EMCORE's classic 14-pin butterfly laser modules.
EMCORE invites you to join us at the ANGACOM Speakers Corner for our presentation on Wednesday, May 31st at 4:30 p.m. We will also be meeting with customers, industry analysts and the media at our booth in hall 8, #Q60 during the show and invite you to contact us if you are interested in scheduling a meeting.
