ANDOVER, Mass. and CAMBRIDGE, U.K. -- Polatis, Inc. the performance leader in all-optical switch technology, today announced its new Series 6000 Optical Matrix Switch - a fully non-blocking, all-optical singlemode fiber cross-connect for up to 192x192 fiber ports with less than 1dB typical optical loss. The Series 6000 doubles the maximum matrix size previously available from Polatis and is based on Polatis' patented DirectLight® optical switch technology, featuring leading-edge optical performance with enhanced energy efficiency and port density. The new product line will be demonstrated at the OFC/NFOEC show in Los Angeles next week. Production shipments commence in the second quarter of 2012.

The Series 6000 will be deployed across a wide number of applications ranging from secure government communications to data center virtualization, broadcast video distribution, satellite RF/optical link management, network testing and more. To satisfy these demanding applications, the Series 6000 extends the proven performance of Polatis' DirectLight® technology, including very low insertion loss, compact size, low power draw and fast switching speeds, to a larger matrix size at competitive pricing. The modular design of the Series 6000 allows both symmetric (NxN) and asymmetric (MxN) matrix configurations as well as a versatile customer-configurable option allowing any-to-any fiber connections.

“The capabilities Polatis brings to optical switching are unique and critical for defense, intelligence and secure communications applications,” said Dave Eisemann, VP of Engineering at Transformational Security, LLC, a firm providing security and engineering solutions to US government agencies along with Fortune 1000 companies.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
