ATLANTA -- Supercomm 2001 -- Understanding carriers' needs to utilize their fiber plants more cost-effectively, OptiMight Communications has taken a unique approach with its OMC 1600(TM) Product Suite by being the first to use more per-wavelength spectrum with standard EDFAs (Erbium-Doped Fiber Amplifiers). Employing OptiMight's Full-Spectrum WDM(TM) (FSWDM) technology in the OMC 1600, carriers get improved Optical Signal to Noise Ratio (OSNR), thus allowing the signal to travel very long distances without the need for electronic regeneration. For the first time in the industry, carriers also enjoy the ability to add and drop signals on a per-wavelength basis, which saves them money in the operation of the network. "From the beginning, OptiMight's goal has been to provide carriers with enhanced transport capabilities at a dramatically lower cost structure, while retaining all the operational behaviors they have grown accustomed to" says Dr. Ilya Fishman, President and CTO. "We have created a product that not only fulfills carriers needs without the increased expense and operational difficulty of Raman amplifiers, but also expands on what is possible as we move to the all-optical network."
