SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Intel Corporation today introduced seven opticalnetworking semiconductors that enable telecommunicationsequipment manufacturers to create new systems that extendthe reach of their service provider customers' optical networks,add intelligence to those networks and deliver new services. Systems based on these new integrated opticalsilicon solutions enable service providers to reach new customerswithout having to install expensive repeaters that boost thesignal of traffic traveling long distances over fiber optic cables. Thesenew components are also capable of receiving and transmitting dataover multiple communications protocols such as ATM, Packetover SONET, Packet over Fiber and 10 Gigabit Ethernet. Thisis important to service providers who must support all thosemultiple protocols if they are to service their customer bases.

"Optical networking equipment based on Intel'snew optical components will enable service providers toreach beyond their existing service boundaries and capture morerevenue without increasing their spending," said MarkChristensen, vice president and general manager of Intel's NetworkCommunications Group. "In addition, our new optical products give ourclients the ability to address the needs of service providers in themetropolitan, long-haul and ultra-long-haul sectors. Our technologyallows our clients to reduce their capital spending while gaininggreater return on their investment."
