Optical Leaders Talk Trends in New JDSU "Industry View" Campaign

Experts at OFC 2011 Address How Industry Is Meeting Explosive Bandwidth Demand

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - March 17, 2011) - JDSU (NASDAQ: JDSU) (TSX: JDU) today released the latest installment of its "Industry View" campaign featuring commentary from optical experts, JDSU customers and analysts on how networks are evolving to support the growing demand for bandwidth. The perspectives showcased on JDSU.tv were captured at last week's Optical Fiber Conference (OFC) 2011 in Los Angeles.

"To keep up with bandwidth demand, it is going to take significant collaborative innovation with our customers," said Alan Lowe, president of JDSU's Communications and Commercial Optical Products business segment. "Differentiated JDSU products like our ROADMs, tunable XFPs and Super Transport Blades are enabling a new generation of agile optical networks better able to support the explosive growth in traffic from emerging video and multimedia services."

In this segment, experts also addressed the key trends in optical communications, including:

  • 100G as a key enabling technology allowing content to be delivered to consumers quickly, efficiently and seamlessly;
  • Higher bandwidth technology that communications carriers can afford to deploy on a large scale;
  • The continued growth of flexible technologies, such as ROADMs and tunable XFPs, supporting the move towards colorless, directionless and contentionless networks; and
  • How the tunable XFP market is taking off to the benefit of the entire industry.

"JDSU has a wide range of technologies and we are vertically integrated all the way from the semiconductor chip through the line card," said Brandon Collings, CTO of Optical Communications at JDSU. "That allows us a lot of freedom and flexibility to solve problems for our customers and our customers' customers."
