In this paper, we will present the recent progress of electrically-pumped directly-modulated tunable 1550 nm VCSEL development at Bandwidth9. The device is fabricated from an all epitaxial VCSEL structure grown on an InP substrate, with a monolithically integrated tuning arm for continuous wavelength tuning. We have demonstrated over 1 mW CW output power and over 20 nm tuning range in C-band and error free transmission performance at 2.5 Gbps over 100 km SMF-28 fiber. The reliability test data of the tunable VCSELs shows a projected failure rate of less than 400 FITS.
