Renowned Optical Industry Expert Dr. Chris Doerr to Share Insights Into Silicon Photonics for the Metro

CANNES, FRANCE--(Marketwired - Sep 21, 2014) - Acacia Communications, the leader in delivering intelligent transceivers for ultra-high speed fiber optic transmission to the telecommunications and data communications industry, today announced that Dr. Chris Doerr, the company's director of photonics integration, will share his insights on Metro Silicon Photonics at the ECOC 2014 Market Focus. The year's largest European optical communications conference, ECOC will be held September 22 - 24 at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes.

Addressing the most significant opportunities and challenges facing the optical industry, ECOC Market Focus sessions are the highlight of the event. Dr. Doerr will be present tomorrow, September 22, at 12:45 p.m.

Acacia, which last week announced that its Coherent AC100-CFP is generally available and shipping in volumes, was chosen to speak as one of the global leaders in optical technology. Fueled by its first-to-market products and explosive growth, the company last month ranked fifth on Inc. Magazine's 33rd annual list of fastest growing privately held firms in the US -- with 200% year-over-year growth in three consecutive years from 2011 to 2013. The company expects to exceed that rate of growth again this fiscal year. Acacia President and CEO Raj Shanmugaraj discussed the company's performance and its market with CNBC Squawk Box.

Experiencing tremendous corporate momentum fueled by the creation of disruptive innovations in coherent signal processing and silicon photonics technologies, Acacia's solutions are deployed in data center, metro, long-haul and ultra-long haul telecommunication networks. Interconnecting data centers and serving as the backbone for mobile networks, the company's products are used in standard edge and core routers, DWDM core and packet edge transport equipment and switches that provide the optical pipes that power the internet.
