ANAHEIM, Calif. -- With the industry's drive toward flexible optical networks, Lambda Crossing, maker of a new class of integrated tunable optical components, will demonstrate its innovative tunable filter at the Optical Fiber Communications (OFC) conference, March 17-22, Anaheim, Calif. The demonstration will be held at Lambda Crossing's booth, No. 3013, Hall C. The filter is tunable over the entire C band and can access up to 80 channels, at 50 GHz spacing, each capable of carrying data at 10 Gbps. Lambda Crossing also will introduce its tunable-filter-based optical add drop multiplexer (OADM) at OFC. The LambdaFlow OADM greatly reduces the cost of add-drop multiplexing by using the company's tunable filter technology. This technology eliminates the need for large optical switching matrices that are currently state of the art. "Network operators are urgently looking for ways to take the huge bandwidth capacity offered by optical networks and turn it into revenue generating service offerings," said Rafi Koriat, CEO. "However, today's mandate is flexibility, because bandwidth need is unpredictable and 'on demand.' Tunable optical components are critical to achieving that flexibility, which will help enable the growth of services by easing the cost of the optical network."
