LOUISVILLE, Colo. -- Zolo Technologies, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of optical networking subsystems, today began delivery of its 100-GHz, single-input, 16- and 20-channel Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) modules. The Zmux™ 1:16/100 and 1:20/100 multiplexers/demultiplexers deliver performance that exceeds arrayed waveguide grating (AWG) devices at costs that are significantly lower than thin-film filters (TFF). This product family extension rounds out the existing offering of 32- and 40-channel, 100-GHz Zmux DWDM modules. The units are especially designed to meet the demands of metro access, metro core and regional networking applications. The Zmux DWDM family employs a proprietary ruled-diffraction grating technology to separate a spectrum of light into its constituent colors or wavelengths. The grating separates the incoming light in a parallel way, dispersing the light instead of filtering it in a cascaded fashion.“The Zolo™ design achieves low polarization dependent loss, while virtually eliminating thermal drift,” said Dr. Andrew Sappey, CTO and co-founder of Zolo Technologies. “The mechanically stable device and passively thermally compensated design represents a breakthrough in the industry and provides a basis for future Zolo integrated products.”Zolo Technologies Inc.
