RICHARDSON, Texas -- Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc.(Fujitsu) today launched its highly efficient, technologically advancedFLASHWAVE 7300 transponder system. In line with the company's productstrategy to drive down operating costs and dramatically increase bandwidth,the FLASHWAVE 7300 transponder system packs 54 full-duplex, 10 Gbps channelsper ANSI rack. This platform uses low power at a rate of 3.52 watts pergigabit. Service providers can achieve dramatic operating expense savingsby minimizing primary power, backup power, battery reserves and coolingcosts.A small menu of widely tunable transmitters covers the entire C and L bandsdramatically decreasing inventory costs throughout a service provider'snetwork. The FLASHWAVE 7300 platform can accrue greater than ninety percent(90%) savings by using 22-channel tunable transponders. Fujitsu hasdeployed over 4,000 tunable transmitters in revenue-generating networks, andthey all deliver enormous savings in terms of sparing and increasing servicevelocity."When you couple the FLASHWAVE 7300 transponder system with our highcapacity, ultra long haul FLASHWAVE 7700 DWDM system, you can expect toyield huge power and space savings," says Stephen Carlton, vice president ofphotonic product marketing for Fujitsu Network Communications. "Whilecarrying large payloads such as 176 full-duplex 10 Gbps channels, theFLASHWAVE 7300 and FLASHWAVE 7700 DWDM solution needs a mere 3.52 watts pergigabit-and occupies fewer than 5 racks. This represents huge operatingexpense savings for the service provider in terms of reduced powerconsumption and decreased space use."Fujitsu Network Communications Inc. (FNC)
