Nortel Ships 40-Gig MEMS Lasers

BOSTON -- Building on its global leadership position in providing high-performance components and modules for optical networks, Nortel Networks (NYSE:NT) (TSE:NT.) has shipped for system trials the industry's first MEMS-based tunable lasers for 40 Gbps systems. Nortel Networks MEMS-based tunable laser broadens its portfolio of wavelength agile components and modules, joining Nortel Networks LCW5 high-power, continuous wave (CW) laser. The MEMS-based tunable laser is scheduled for general availability in the fourth quarter of this year. LCW5 is now generally available for large volume deployments.

"This demonstrates our business strategy of bringing cutting edge, tunable components to market quickly through field trials and then volume manufacturing for wide deployment," said Barbara Callaghan, president, High-Performance Optical Component Solutions (HPOCS), Nortel Networks. "Both tunable lasers demonstrate our commitment to delivering wavelength agile solutions to service providers and optical equipment vendors."
