StrataLight Communications Ships 2500th 40 Gbps Transponder

Deployment Milestone Reached in the Second Quarter With Shipments to North America, Europe, and Asia

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - June 17, 2008) - StrataLight Communications, the leader in commercial deployment of 40 Gbps optical transmission subsystems, announced today that it has shipped its 2500th high performance, long reach 40 Gbps DWDM transponder. This milestone, achieved in the second quarter of 2008, encompasses transponders that utilize both of StrataLight's current modulation technologies, Optical Duo-Binary (ODB) and Differential Phase Shift Keyed (DPSK).

"We are very proud of this significant milestone," said Shri Dodani, CEO at StrataLight Communications. "Shipping our 2500th 40 Gbps transponder is a distinct technological and operational achievement. From a technological perspective, we've developed a suite of field proven solutions that allow carriers to deploy 40 Gbps services using common 10 Gbps engineering rules. Equally impressive though, is the commercial and operational success in transforming our leading technology into a volume business that creates real value for our customers and partners."

StrataLight Communications made its NEBS level-3 40 Gbps transmission products available in 2004 with its initial OTS-4000 PSBT (Phase Shifted Binary Transmission also known as ODB) subsystem. With initial trials in 2005 and network deployments in 2006, StrataLight has secured several OEM partners of networking equipment offering both PSBT and DPSK technologies at 40 Gbps.
