MILPITAS, Calif. -- Lambda Optics, a leading developer of fiber optics components for optical systems providers, today announced the introduction of the first all‑optical switch utilizing advanced switching technology that is not based on a MEMS platform. Lambda is the first company to provide a switch that routes signals based on a patented, closed‑loop, self‑aligning, microprocessor‑driven mechanism that dramatically improves channel‑to‑channel switching and maintains high reliability. Additional features made possible by Lambda Optics' unique smart‑path alignment include output signal attenuation, vibration compensation, performance tracking and a channel‑loss performance alarm (to mitigate "sudden‑death" performance drops).Lambda Optics is providing a demonstration of their smart switches (1xN, 2X2 and 2X2-array of 8 with VOA on outputs) at the OFC 2002 conference and tradeshow, taking place at the Anaheim Convention Center, March 17-22. On the show floor, in Booth 2477, Hall D, Lambda will demonstrate the low-loss optical performance of its suite of smart switches. “Optical networks and systems providers are looking to match network expenses to revenues and drive bandwidth services delivery to more closely track with exploding customer demand,” noted Jessie Singh, Lambda Optics’ president and CEO. “To accomplish this, it is necessary to significantly upgrade existing network systems and deliver a break-through architecture that integrates transport with switching functions for optical service delivery. With the market introduction of the metro level smart switch system, optical network providers can minimize the cost of bandwidth, improve network reliability and deliver plug-and-play service provisioning.”Lambda Optics Inc.For more information on OFC 2002, please visit: www.nottheofc.com
