SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Finisar Corporation (NASDAQ: FNSR), the world leader in flexible optical technology, today demonstrated several new products for telecom applications, including a Dual 1x20 Wavelength Selective Switch (WSS) incorporating the Flexgrid™ functionality pioneered by Finisar and the industry's first DML-based PRX40 OSA for 10G-EPON. Finisar's WSS devices enable networks to dynamically evolve with changing standards so that systems equipment OEMs can provide the performance, dynamic flexibility, and scalability required for both today's and tomorrow's networks. Demonstrations will take place during OFC/NFOEC in Finisar's booth #2405 at the Anaheim Convention Center, March 19-21, 2013. The WSS demonstration shows a single device with dual independent 1x20 and 20x1 wavelength selective switching in a compact module for high degree and colorless, directionless, contentionless (CDC) Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) nodes. This device, as well as the entire WSS portfolio, features wide passbands, low insertion loss and, Flexgrid™ technology including hitless widening/narrowing of channels and intra-channel attenuation for equalization across a super channel with high-resolution control. The Dual 1x20 WSS is the same size as the current 1x20 WSS and also built upon Finisar's Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) technology. Finisar also demonstrated the Triplexer OSA, the industry's first DML-based PRX40 OSA for 10G-EPON. With a transmission reach up to 20km, the Triplexer OSA will cost-effectively provide both higher optical power (5dBm to 9dBm) than current EML devices and a higher link budget to enable split ratios greater than 1:64. The Triplexer OSA is shown in an XFP module, but can be packaged into any form factor required. Finisar Corp.
