WALLINGFRD, Conn. and MAINZ, Germany -- Mangrove Systems, developer of the industry's first end-to-end MPLS solution, and Cube Optics (CUBO), a manufacturer of miniaturized fiber-optic components, today announced the market introduction of the first CWDM multiplexers integrated into a pluggable GBIC module. The companies have jointly developed miniaturized CWDM devices that are incorporated in a GBIC MSA format, available either as an 8-channel head-end or single wavelength add and drops for access nodes. The devices feature as an option for Mangrove's Piranha and Barracuda MetroMPLST Access and Switching platforms.

"Cube Optics' expertise in miniaturized packaging and modular integration of passive components, coupled with Mangrove's advanced platform design has resulted in a unique, pluggable OADM allowing us to offer our customers an inexpensive, CWDM-based access solution for their ring architectures," said Jonathan Reeves, Mangrove's president and CEO.

"The introduction of Mangrove's novel MetroMPLS solution for the metro and access space is timed perfectly for this partnership with CUBO. Together, we have created a highly successful relationship for the joint development of miniature, pluggable GBIC multiplexers with a clear advantage for network operators. I am certain that this will result in many additional products that address the desire of service providers to further reduce capital and operating expenses through the use of advanced, integrated technology," states CUBO's CEO Thomas Paatzsch.
