SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Capella Intelligent Subsystems, the leading provider of wavelength selective switches (WSS) for use in reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer (ROADM) and optical cross connects, today announced it closed a $20 million financing. The oversubscribed round was led by Black Diamond Ventures. Other participants in the investment include SingTel Innov8, the corporate venture arm of the SingTel Group, Levensohn Partners, Formative Ventures, Lucas Venture Group and Rustic Canyon Ventures.

The $20 million in new capital will be used to expand and strengthen Capella’s presence in the ROADM market, which is expected to grow to $1.8 billion over the next four years according to Infonetics Research. New product offerings and operational improvements are Capella’s key focus in the coming months, as the Company expands to meet growing market demands.

“With the increasing need of optical network flexibility and reliability, Capella's Wavelength Selective Switch (WSS) has the potential to significantly reduce service provider CAPEX and OPEX,” said Yvonne Kwek, CEO of SingTel Innov8. "As service providers build out and upgrade their networks, Capella’s WSS technologies provide a compelling competitive advantage."

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.
