MILPITAS, Calif. -- OpVista, a leader in high performance optical networking systems, today announced the OpVista CX8 Optical Networking System. The OpVista CX8 is designed to meet the requirements of service providers worldwide who need to efficiently upgrade existing 10G fiber networks to 40G and 100G to support growing demand for bandwidth intensive services for homes and businesses. The OpVista CX8 is the first optical networking system to be based on the company's recently introduced Dense Multi-Carrier (DMC) technology.

DMC combines advanced multiple carrier photonics, lambda stabilization and multi-level modulation to deliver 40G and 100G bandwidth per wavelength over any type of optical network from metro to ultra long haul. The new DMC-enabled OpVista CX8 system achieves high network capacity while maintaining compatibility with the characteristics of today's 10G optical infrastructure. It also allows service providers to upgrade their existing 10G network incrementally with 40G and 100G wavelength overlays, which can be injected into existing network elements as external wavelengths. As a result, the OpVista CX8 delivers substantial CAPEX and OPEX savings as compared to conventional 40G technology.

"As the first product incorporating DMC technology, the OpVista CX8 transforms how service providers provide support for 40G and 100G over existing 10G networks. The OpVista CX8 also extends the advanced, proven reconfigurability and service-enabling features from the widely installed OpVista2000 product family," said Karl May, Chief Executive Officer, OpVista. "The OpVista CX8 is the ideal platform for service providers facing subscriber demands for high-bandwidth services and needing to respond quickly and cost-effectively."
