Blue Sky Unveils Optical Crossconnects

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Blue Sky Research, a privately held developer and manufacturer of high-performance, cost-effective optical network components, today announced the preliminary release of its Optical Cross Connect Switches (OXCs) for DWDM Optical Networks. Blue Sky Research's OXC is based on a micromirror design using a reliability-proven actuator design. The electro-mechanical actuators are fundamentally different than MEMS (micro electro mechanical systems), and while sharing the positive attributes of MEMS actuators, successfully overcome certain of their limitations.

"Blue Sky's Optical Cross Connect Switch is engineered to provide our customers with feature-rich performance, yet at affordable incremental cost," said Dan Hu, president and CEO of Blue Sky Research. "This is a no-nonsense design. We melded the Company's photonics expertise with its mechanical and servo-electronics expertise to create a switch with a new level of performance and compactness."
