Lightwave Microsystems, recognized as a leader in the manufacture and marketing of planar waveguide circuits and integrated optical components announces the Variable Optical Attenuator (VOA) Multiplexer 100 GHz in the C and L bands. The VOA Multiplexer is the industry's newest and most powerful solution for dynamic channel equalization, balancing, and grooming. The VOA Multiplexer is remotely programmable at the transmit and add/drop ends of a DWDM network. Lightwave Microsystems demonstrates the VOA Multiplexer's capabilities at the Optical Fiber Communications Conference (OFC), booth No. 1762, Anaheim Convention Center, California.

The VOA Multiplexer is the latest addition to Lightwave's family of integrated optical components. The VOA Multiplexer consists of 40 thermo-optic VOAs and one Arrayed Waveguide Grating (AWG) Multiplexer. This device replaces 79 or more discrete optical elements. Today most of the components sold are made from individual parts using bulk optics. Traditional components are too costly and complicated to effectively manage the unique requirements of advanced communications systems. Photonic Integrated Circuits (PIC) combine many individual parts together in as what is known as an Optical Integrated Circuit (OIC). The technology used is a waveguide-based Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC). Lightwave Microsystems' proprietary PLC technology is known by the tradename, LightWeaverTM.

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.
