Optelian Expands Product Portfolio; Announces Availability of Tunable XFPs

Networks Operators Will Benefit From Reconfigurability & Inventory Cost Savings

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - March 7, 2011) - Optelian, a trusted designer and manufacturer of optical transport systems, today announced the availability of tunable XFPs. The new product will be on display at Optelian's booth, #2400, at this week's OFC/NFOEC being held at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Tunable XFPs feature the narrow spectral width and wavelength stability required for 80-channel DWDM systems. Tunability has two benefits: it supports dynamic reconfigurability and it saves inventory cost. Having these features in an XFP format means that existing muxponder, regenerator and transponder cards can be used in reconfigurable, high capacity optical networks. Tunable XFPs have comparable performance and reach as fixed DWDM XFPs.

"Having tunable XFPs gives network operators a great deal of flexibility for adding and managing a wide range of traffic types and implementing a wide range of architectures," said Dave Mills, VP Sales, Optelian.

Optelian's tunable XFP is fully compatible with all LightGAIN and LightMUX active modules as well as third party equipment.
