SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Capella Intelligent Subsystems, the leading provider of wavelength selective switch (WSS) technologies for use in reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer (ROADM) and optical cross connects, today announced the next member of the CR-X family of WSS products with the CR-EX. The CR-EX is a 1x20 total wavelength management solution with integrated monitoring capability. The CR-EX is characterized by wide passbands, high extinction ratio, low cross talk and insertion loss for all 21 ports. Consistently high quality optical performance on all ports enables complete ROADM architecture flexibility, while maximizing the number of cascaded nodes, and minimizing amplification costs. Using Capella’s proprietary technology, the CR-EX fits in the same footprint as the CR50 and CR100 and supports either fixed attenuation or constant power mode allowing the DWDM equipment manufacturer to select the best network control solution for their application.

Pat Day, Capella’s VP of Engineering and Product Development stated, “Our CR-EX offers best in class optical performance, the lowest profile and the lowest power consumption on the market today. The CR-EX, with it’s integrated optical channel power monitor, and 1x20(drop) or 20x1(add) functionality or combined add/drop in a single module is the complete WSS solution for route and select ROADM architectures.”

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
