Finisar Offers CWDM Modules

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Finisar Corporation (Nasdaq: FNSR - news), a technology innovator in gigabit fiber optic solutions for high-speed data networks, today unveiled a full line of coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM) modules designed to address the specific requirements of the metropolitan access market. These new CWDM products, including transceivers, optical add/drop multiplexers (OADMs) and multiplexers/demultiplexers, deliver dramatic cost savings to optical networking manufacturers, enabling them to develop systems that are lower in cost, easier to provision and simpler to operate.

Finisar is the first company to deliver a full line of optical modules based on CWDM. ONI Systems(TM)Corp. (NASDAQ: ONIS - news) of San Jose, Calif., a leading provider of optical equipment for metro core and access markets, has announced their use of Finisar's CWDM modules as part of its new ONLINE2500(TM)optical edge services platform, targeted at both service providers and enterprises.

"Finisar has developed best-in-class CWDM modules that provide the feature set and operational economics we wanted in our ONLINE2500 product which will bring optical wavelengths and new services to the edge of the network," said Rusty Cumpston, Executive Vice President, Engineering and Operations for ONI Systems. "We evaluated other options, but it was clear that Finisar offered the best combination of quality, functionality and economics."
