SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Oclaro, Inc. (Nasdaq: OCLR), a provider of optical components, modules and subsystems to the telecom industry, today announced the addition of an XTLS 4x1 50 GHz Wavelength Selective Switch (WSS). This new WSS module complements Oclaro's existing 2x1 and 9x1 50 GHz WSS family to fit a broadening spectrum of ROADM applications. By employing 50 GHz, WSS customers are able to double the switching capacity of their networking systems in a flexible and cost effective manner.

"We are seeing an increased demand for 50 GHz spacing WSS products to support higher capacity optical networking systems," said Dr. Krishna Bala, Executive Vice President of Oclaro's WSS Division. "By exploiting a common optical platform we can satisfy our customers' requirements for different granularities of WSS at both 50 GHz and 100 GHz spacing."
