Lightwaves2020 Receives Approval from a Major Customer for its No-Shift 50 GHz DWDM Modules

MILPITAS, CA, March 11, 2002 – Lightwaves2020, an innovative designer and manufacturer of fiberoptic components and subsystems, has received approval for its new No-Shift 50 GHz DWDM Modules from a major manufacturer of fiberoptic systems. This approval demonstrates the superior performance of Lightwaves2020’s 50 GHz DWDM products.

The No-Shift 50 GHz DWDM Modules are based on proprietary No-Shift thin film coating and packaging technologies. Its design results in low polarization dependent loss, while virtually eliminating thermal drift. It also provides a high-performance, low cost and compact alternative to competing technologies such as Fiber Bragg and Arrayed Waveguide Gratings, which typically suffer from performance limitations, manufacturing yield issues and high production costs.

Available in the C-band and L-band, the No-Shift 50GHz DWDM modules have a guaranteed bandwidth of ±10GHz @ 0.5dB over temperature, wavelength and polarization. These modules are designed for both 2.5Gb/s and 10Gb/s systems and are ideal for use in long haul, submarine, metro access, CATV and enterprise networks.

Lightwaves2020s innovative packaging solutions allows for high-volume production that enables the company to help meet the demands of any customer, no matter their size or application. In addition, Telcordia certification ensures that all Lightwaves2020 products will perform under the most demanding conditions.
