TeraXion Introduces Dispersion Compensators for Outside Plant Applications

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 17, 2009) - TeraXion Inc., a technology leader in products for the generation and conditioning of light signals for Telecommunications and Defense & Aerospace markets, announces the introduction of its static dispersion compensation products for outside plant applications.

With the current trend to increase both capacity and reach of optical communication systems, chromatic dispersion impairments quickly become a limiting factor for CATV networks. TeraXion's static dispersion compensators designed for outside plant applications allow network operators to seamlessly upgrade their existing infrastructure to higher RF frequencies over longer distances with a minimal impact on loss budget.

TeraXion's static dispersion compensators offer the unique advantage to combine ultra-low insertion loss and high tolerance to optical power in a small form factor package. "A typical insertion loss of 2 dB for dispersion levels between 20 and 100 km combined to its stable dispersion compensation over an operating temperature ranging from -40 to +85 degrees C makes our static dispersion compensators the ideal choice for analog communications applications" said Dr. Martin Guy, Vice-President of Product Management and Technology at TeraXion. The small form factors of the ClearSpectrum™ DCX and DCMX also facilitate the integration with other system modules such as optical amplifiers.

The complete ClearSpectrum™ dispersion compensation product line will be on display at the 2009 OFC/NFOEC exhibition (http://www.ofcnfoec.org), booth # 1744, on March 24-26th, in San Diego, California.
