RICHARDSON, Texas -- Chorum Technologies Inc., a leading provider of all-optical processors and subsystems in the fast-growing fiber-optics market, today announced it has signed a multiyear supply agreement to provide its PolarWave(TM) Optical Slicer(TM) filters to TyCom Ltd. (NYSE:TCM) (BSX:TCM). TyCom, one of the world's largest providers of advanced undersea fiber optics capacity, systems and services, will integrate Chorum Technologies' Optical Slicer filters into their Wavelength Termination Equipment. Chorum Technologies' Optical Slicer filtering technology is based on the company's patented polarization processing and spectrum filtering techniques. The Optical Slicer filter is a passive device that combines or separates thousands of high-bandwidth optical channels onto and off a single fiber-optic strand, increasing the transmission carrying capacity and reducing the overall cost of fiber-optic telecommunications networks.

"TyCom is a global leader in developing and deploying state-of-the-art optical systems," said Scott Grout, Chorum Technologies president and CEO. "We are proud to be working with TyCom as we continue to advance our optical networking products."
