JDSU Introduces First Multichannel Optical Transport Network Test Solution for 10G, 40G and 100G Networks

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 20, 2011) - JDSU (NASDAQ: JDSU) (TSX: JDU) today introduced the first Optical Transport Network (OTN) multichannel test solution for 10G, 40G and 100G networks. JDSU's multichannel solution enables service providers to accelerate the development and deployment of high-speed OTN-based transport and switching equipment for more cost-effective transmission of video and other high-bandwidth traffic.

In addition to supporting network speeds up to 100G, JDSU's multichannel solution is unique in that it simulates the complexities of live network traffic more precisely than any competing solution. These capabilities give service providers better assurance that they will be able to deliver a quality experience to their consumer and business customers.

JDSU's OTN multichannel solution is provided from the company's ONT product line. The advanced multichannel, multi-port architecture makes the ONT an ideal tool for the development and production of high-speed network systems.

"The rapidly growing volume of unpredictable, video-driven traffic has created new risks to service quality and a growing need for more cost-effective transmission and switching technologies like OTN," said Dr. Lars Friedrich, vice president and general manager, JDSU Communications Test and Measurement business segment. "JDSU's new multichannel test solution accelerates development of OTN-based systems and enables service providers to have greater confidence in the reliability of their networks."

This new feature complements JDSU's portfolio of multichannel transmission test solutions which started with the introduction of the industry's first SDH/SONET multichannel tester ten years ago.

JDSU won the 2011 Global Market Leader award by Frost & Sullivan for SONET/SDH, which included OTN capabilities. JDSU will be highlighting its test and measurement solutions at the European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC), booth #1622, September 18-22, 2011, in Geneva, Switzerland.
