StrataLight to Speak on Next Generation Optical Networking

Demonstrating PMDC Technology at WDM Cannes, France

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - June 23, 2008) - StrataLight Communications, Inc. (StrataLight), the market leader in commercial deployment of 40 Gbps optical transmission subsystems, will participate at IIR's WDM & Next Generation Optical Networking conference in Cannes, France with an exhibition stand, speaking appearance and live demonstration.

StrataLight will demonstrate its Optical Polarization Mode Dispersion Compensation (PMDC) technology for both Optical Duo-Binary (ODB) and Differential Phase Shift Keying (DPSK) advanced modulation formats. StrataLight's PMDC technology increases the PMD tolerance of its 40Gbps solutions so it is compatible with existing 10 Gbps deployments, thus extending the life of existing fiber networks where PMD may have been a concern for 40Gbps.

Ross Saunders, StrataLight's General Manager of 100Gbps and Next Generation Technology, will participate in a panel discussion on "Next Generation Optical Networking" with other industry leaders to address key developments in WDM technology and their benefits to network operators to be held on Tuesday, June 24. StrataLight will continue to provide solutions that are technology advanced, co-exist with deployed equipment and fiber plant, and maximize network utilization and communications throughput.

The WDM & Next Generation Optical Networking conference takes place Monday, June 23 through Friday, June 27 at the Hotel Palais Stephanie in Cannes, France. Delegates at the conference are invited to stop by StrataLight Booth 15 or contact their StrataLight representative to arrange an appointment. Press and analysts can arrange a meeting via the contact listed below.
