"We have the ability to use coarse tools to manipulate the machine, and at the far end of that machine we have a lens that is positioned to sub-micron levels," explained Byron Trop, vice president of marketing and sales at Kaiam.

Kaiam sells 40Gbps QSFP TOSAs and ROSAs for 2km, 10km and 40km reaches. The company is now selling its 40km 10×10 MSA TOSA and ROSA, which were demonstrated at the recent OFC/NFOEC show. Trop says that the 40km 10×10 CFP MSA module is of great interest to Internet exchange operators that want low cost, point-to-point links.
"Low cost, highly efficient optical interconnect is going to be important and it is not all at 40km reaches," says Trop. "Much of it is much shorter distances and we believe we have a technology that will enable that."
Kaiam is looking to apply its technology to next-generation optical modules such as the CFP2, CFP4 and QSFP28.  "We will also do more custom optical modules where somebody is trying to solve a particular problem; maybe they want 16 or 20 lanes of traffic," says Trop.
With the Gemfire acquisition, Kaiam now has its own PLC technology for multiplexing and de-multiplexing multiple 10Gbps lanes and, in future, 25Gbps. "Our belief is that PLC is the best way to go and allows you to expand into larger lane counts," said Trop.
