SAN DIEGO -- Avanex Corporation (NASDAQ:AVNX - News), a pioneering provider of intelligent photonic solutions enabling next-generation optical networks, announced today at the OFC/NFOEC 2008 Expo that it has started volume shipments of subsystems based on its Oasis digital control architecture.

Avanex Modules and Subsystems General Manager Richard Smart said, “Our customers need to dramatically lower their costs and time-to-market. The software and firmware tools that we have developed for the digital control fabric of our Oasis amplifier are now being used to integrate and manage the optical functions of the regeneration and ROADM node in a cost effective manner. We’re moving away from extensive optical and electronic design into software configuration of platforms to meet customer specifications. Our ability to move the telecom design challenge into the software domain is giving a much shorter development cycle than has previously been achieved. We have already integrated performance monitoring and service channel transceiver functionality to our amplifiers and will move next to integrating tunable dispersion compensation and wavelength routing.”
