RICHARDSON, Texas -- Reinforcing a commitment to help carriers in the long haul market recognize additional Operating Expense (OPEX) savings, add more services to their network and simplify network operations, Fujitsu Network Communications Inc. today revealed its latest release of the FLASHWAVE 7300 high-density transponder system offering an extremely small footprint, tunable lasers and efficient power utilization.This latest release of the FLASHWAVE 7300 platform allows long haul carriers to enhance the economies of Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) transmission by transporting a wide breadth of services to reduce the operational overhead and maximize return on investment. To further drive down costs, the FLASHWAVE 7300 platform provides self-healing network protection, 2.4 Gbps multiplexers/transponders, or muxponders, to maximize the utilization of wavelengths, Forward Error Correction (FEC) to achieve longer spans, and digital wrapper technology to enhance the performance monitoring and fault isolation of signals in the DWDM domain. Additional savings are made possible through the use of 22-channel tunable lasers, which allow all wavelengths in the entire C and L bands to be supported with a fraction of the cards typically required, decreasing inventory costs by up to 84% throughout the network.“Fujitsu is dedicated to providing innovative solutions that allow long haul carriers to deploy the most efficient and cost-effective network possible,” says Stephen Carlton, vice president of photonic product marketing for Fujitsu Network Communications. “The FLASHWAVE 7300 platform is yet another example of the technology we are continually developing to help long haul carriers lower their total network cost, generate revenue more quickly and increase their margin of profitability.”Fujitsu Network Communications Inc.
