SAN DIEGO -- OMM, Inc., the world leader in MEMS-based all-optical switching modules, today announced that ZTE Corporation of China has incorporated OMM's products into the optical crossconnect (OXC) functionality of their UNITRANS metro telecommunications system. Using OMM's MEMS-based switching modules, ZTE has developed and commercialized an all-optical crossconnect as part of the UNITRANS ZXMP system for dynamic wavelength management in metropolitan area networks. The transparency provided by the OXC ensures switching of multiple data rates in dense wavelength division multiplexed (DWDM) optical networks. "In the telecom market in China, we see all-optical crossconnects becoming key elements for flexible metro DWDM systems," said Zhao Yong, Product Director for Optical Communications at ZTE. "We chose OMM as our supplier because of their technology lead and proven manufacturing capability," he added.
