SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Finisar Corporation (Nasdaq: FNSR), a technology leader in gigabit fiber optic solutions for high-speed data and telecommunication networks, today announced its new Dense Wavelength-Division Multiplexing (DWDM) GBIC transceiver, the FTR-1631. The transceiver offers DWDM transport with dramatically lower power and cost in a standard pluggable GBIC package. Using Finisar's advanced optical technology, the FTR-1631 is designed expressly for service providers deploying DWDM networking equipment in metropolitan access and core networks. Also, the new transceiver opens up a new possibility for LAN equipment makers with GBIC ports to use DWDM transport for optical networking applications. Finisar advanced the state-of-the art in optical transceiver design by miniaturizing the optics and control circuitry required to launch a DWDM light source to within 0.1nm wavelength over a 0 to 70C temperature range. With this breakthrough innovation the transceiver will have a lower cost, require 30% of the power of current designs and fit within the size of a standard GBIC footprint. Along with these extraordinary features the transceiver operates at multi-rates from 125Mps to 2.7Gps with a power link budget of 28db. Sample availability is July 2002. Full production is expected December 2002. Finisar will be demonstrating the FTR-1631 DWDM Transceiver at Supercomm in booth number 12619 in Hall C4. Finisar Corp.
