Enablence Technologies Positioned to Serve High-Speed and Dynamic Network Requirements

FREMONT, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwire - March 5, 2012) - Enablence Technologies, Inc. ("Enablence" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ENA), a leading supplier of optical components and subsystems for access, metro and long-haul markets, is well positioned to supply critical optical components for high-speed long-haul and metro networks.

Enablence has started commercial delivery of 8x10G DWDM Transmitter Optical Sub-Assembly (TOSA) and Receiver Optical Sub-Assembly (ROSA) designed for standard CFP packaging. These TOSA/ROSA modules are specialized for lineside metro and long-haul applications. Similar 10x10G sub-systems are in development and scheduled for release later in 2012. Enablence is now sampling OIF compliant TOSA and ROSA module for coherent 100G PM-QPSK systems. These Nx10G TOSA/ROSA and 100G coherent products leverage Enablence' proprietary low-loss silica-on-silicon planar lightwave circuit (PLC) technology and its automated capability to hybridly integrate active components. These technologies result in compact high-performance components that can be efficiently scaled into commercial production.

In the ROADM space, Enablence's 8x8 and 8x12 multicast switch modules are being used by multiple tier-1 telecom systems suppliers for routing WDM signals. The multicast switch is a key element for next generation CDC ROADM (colorless, directionless, and contention-less reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer). It is fabricated using a mass-reproducible polymer PLC platform. An 8x16 configuration will be available for customer sampling in April and is expected to be in commercial production later in 2012.

Enablence will have these products, along with many others, on display at the Optical Fiber Conference (OFC) tradeshow to be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center, March 6-8, 2012 with booth number of 2507.

Enablence' key staff members have been industry leaders for over 20 years and were the first to commercialize critical products for the telecommunications industry such as the arrayed waveguide grating (AWG) devices, and have been leaders in hybrid integration for over 8 years.
