SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Oplink Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: OPLK), a leading designer and manufacturer of innovative optical components and subsystems, today announced the introduction of its Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexing (ROADM) product family. Oplink’s ROADM solutions are a part of the company’s recently announced DWDM product Line and enable user selectable add/drop of specific wavelengths. The Company’s custom ROADM designs include 2, 4 or 8 channel or larger configurations. “Reconfigurability is a key requirement of next-generation networks especially in the metro space. The capability of remote add/drop provisioning versus costly truck-rolls is going to be a key differentiator for our customers,” said Fred Fromm, Oplink’s president and CEO. “By leveraging our technology know-how and our highly efficient manufacturing process, Oplink is very competitive in delivering this innovative technology. All of this translates into a real competitive advantage for our customers.” The company offers both Thin Film Filter (TFF) as well as Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) technology-based solutions for its OADM products at 200 GHz, 100 GHz as well as 50 GHz channel spacing. These solutions include channel equalization options and can also be applied to reconfigure bands of wavelengths using Oplink’s Terra Band WDM (BWDM) Product Portfolio. These ROADM products maximize bandwidth capacity while enabling the reduction of both capital and operational costs of optical systems. Oplink Communications Inc.
