WALLINGFORD, Conn. -- CiDRA Corporation ("CiDRA") today unveiled its AgileWaveTM Tunable Bandpass Filter (TBF), the first 50GHz tunable filter to scan or set along the entire C-band wavelength range. The TBF is a digitally programmable filter module that enables precise routing and monitoring of individual DWDM channels in optical telecommunication networks. Based on CiDRA's proprietary optical waveguide technology and tunable Bragg grating technology, the first product release accurately scans or sets a narrow 50GHz filter to any wavelength within the C-band with a simple digital command.

"This unique device provides a new optical monitoring and transmission diagnostic tool to network operators for verifying system performance for installation and maintenance applications," said Kevin Didden, CiDRA's president and CEO. "The ability to remotely select out channels and perform complete optical performance tests at various line locations greatly enhances network performance monitoring and fault identification."
