Intune Announces Laser Advance
Fast calibration means reduced manufacturing costs due to a reduction in the number of lasers that are packaged but not fully tested for tuning. The cost of each package can be as high as four times the laser cost. Lasers which do not meet the required performance and have been packaged, must be discarded along with the package. Fast calibration will also deliver a greater volume of reliability data for the users of tunable devices. This will result in a higher level of confidence and more widespread deployment of these lasers. Networks will ultimately benefit in reliability, flexibility and scalability by using the tunable laser function deep in the heart of the system.
