BRUSSELS -- NeoPhotonics and ECI Telecom today announced here at the European Conference and Exhibition on Optical Communication (ECOC2008) that NeoPhotonics’ new Ultra-Low Loss Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) modules are being used in ECI Telecom's XDM® OpticalNetworking Platform. The Ultra-Low Loss ROADM incorporates NeoPhotonics’advanced planar lightwave circuit (PLC) technology to significantly reduce the insertion loss and increase the pass band, thus meeting the requirements for next generation 40 Gbps optical transmission systems.

"NeoPhotonics' ultra low insertion loss and wide passband PLC ROADM, complementing ECI’s existing WSS ROADM, has enabled us to meet and surpass performance goals for next generation optical platforms, which we are now deploying in metro and long-haul networks around the world," said Oren Marmur, Vice President, Optical Networking Line of Business of ECI Telecom. "In line with ECI’s 1Net, a comprehensive framework focused on the optimized transition to next-generation networks, NeoPhotonics’ PLC ROADM helped us achieve greater flexibility and cost-effectiveness, while guaranteeing compatibility with future 40 Gbps operations.”
