Enablence Unveils PIC-Based Integrated Multicast Switch

New 8x12 Photonic Integrated Circuits-Based Integrated Multicast Switch Enables Next-Gen ROADM and Cost-Effective 100 Gbps Applications

TORONTO, CANADA--(Marketwire - March 2, 2011) - Enablence Technologies, Inc. ("Enablence" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ENA), a leading supplier of fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) equipment for triple-play residential and business services and optical components and subsystems for access, metro and long-haul markets, today announced the availability of its new industry first Integrated Multicast Switch (iMS). The 8x12 iMS is the latest addition to the Enablence switching product family, the industry's most cost-effective solution. Based on Enablence's proprietary Photonic Integrated Circuits (PIC) technology, the 8x12 iMS offers eight input and 12 output ports, giving service providers the ability to improve scalability and increase design flexibility.

Multicast technology is increasingly in demand by service providers in need of reliable, cost effective ways to scale services to meet customer needs. The Enablence family of PIC-based iMS offers reduced total cost of ownership, improved reliability, increased design flexibility and tremendous scalability features that are critical for next generation optical transmission systems. The new 8x12 iMS is available immediately and is a key enabler for the implementation of next-Gen reconfigurable, optical add-and-drop multiplexers (ROADMs), the fastest growing segment in the optical networking market that delivers critical colorless, directionless and contentionless performance across the network. 

"The new Enablence 8x12 iMS can truly help service providers achieve a pay-as-you-go service delivery goal, reducing their upfront capital expenditures and allowing for a highly scalable network design," said Jacob Sun, President of Enablence's Optical Components and Subsystems Division. "The PIC-based 8x12 iMS can also significantly reduce the cost for 100G Coherent transmission systems by simplifying the drop ports architecture, a technology that will be widely deployed in the next few years. With the addition of the 8x12 switch, our family of iMS solutions now includes the choices of 4x8, 8x8, and 8x12 iMS. The add/drop port count for the switch can be further expanded up to 8x24 with this platform."

Enablence's PIC innovation team consists of industry thought leaders with more than 20 years of experience. Enablence experts were the first to commercialize critical products for the telecommunications industry, such as AWG devices. Enablence's long history of fabricating PICs allows customers to leverage the competitive advantage of tested, standards-based solutions that reduce costs and eliminate sourcing and performance risks.
