BRIDGEWATER, N.J. -- Nistica, a global supplier of agile optical modules to leading telecom system OEMs, announced today the launch of its new FULL FLEDGE subsystem to meet growing demand for cost-effective Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Modules (ROADMs) in core network nodes. Nistica has blended the optical performance strength of its ROADM architecture with the proven technology from Texas Instruments (TI) DLP® Products to create a first-of-its-kind module for heavy-duty core node applications.

The new FULL FLEDGE module rounds out Nistica’s edge ROADM product portfolio, and delivers critical features that OEMs need to serve metro optical nodes with 100% add-drop capacity. Using FULL FLEDGE, customers can affordably extend the benefits of the FLEDGE series to more nodes in carrier networks than with any other optical solution. The new device further exploits more than a decade of the experience that TI has built into its award-winning DLP technology, including HDTVs, projectors, and Digital Cinema® theatres worldwide.

Speaking on the product launch, Nistica CEO Ashish Vengsarkar stated that, “Telecom OEMs asked us to expand our FLEDGE platform to improve their network scalability, and they are clamoring for the FULL FLEDGE ROADM device. Their customers’ networks are steadily moving to Gigabit bandwidth for mass market services like consumer video-sharing and gaming, carrier Ethernet, and data center connectivity. Carriers urgently need better, faster, and most importantly, cost-effective provisioning of flexible optical bandwidth in dense metros. This is a high-volume need -- as many as 80% of metro nodes can immediately benefit from the FULL FLEDGE configuration.”

He continued, “Our marquee partnership with Fujikura has given our customers the comfort they need to embrace this innovative product. Moreover, Texas Instruments has chosen to work with us in telecom DLP applications because of our innovative approach to achieving a low-cost, full-featured platform and our overall experience with the Telcordia-certified FLEDGE platform.”
