TeraXion Introduces a New Wavelength-Tunable Dispersion Compensator-TDCX at OFC/NFOEC

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 20, 2008) - TeraXion Inc. (http://www.teraxion.com/email_tdcx) is proud to announce the introduction of its new channel plan independent Tunable Dispersion Compensator, the ClearSpectrum™-TDCX (http://www.teraxion.com/html/en/telecom/prod.php?p=25).
TeraXion adds a new tunable dispersion compensator to its well-established ClearSpectrum™ product line (http://www.teraxion.com/html/en/telecom/index.php). The new ClearSpectrum™ TDCX is designed to be channel plan independent through a wavelength tuning mechanism and can therefore be deployed in 40 Gb/s systems with a 50 GHz channel spacing or in long-haul 10 Gb/s terminals using a 25 GHz grid. Based on the widely deployed and Telcordia-qualified TDC technology, this new compensator is the perfect dispersion management solution for 40 Gb/s applications or submarine networks where wavelength flexibility, accuracy and reliability are critical.

TeraXion is the leader in dynamic dispersion compensation solutions in the telecommunication market. "In this rapidly growing 40 Gb/s market, we are committed to strengthen our business to efficiently respond to customers demands for performance, flexibility, reliability and exceeding their expectations. Indeed, our customers are continuously looking for cost-efficient ways to manage dispersion at 40 Gb/s. We are dedicated to bring novel and integrated solutions to address their current needs and TeraXion's new ClearSpectrum™-TDCX is the perfect dispersion management solution" said Dr. Martin Guy, Vice-President of Product Management and Technology at TeraXion.

The growing demand for bandwidth is setting the stage for the introduction of 100 Gb/s in future optical networks. During the OFC/NFOEC technical conference, TeraXion's TDC technology will also be featured in field trial demonstration at 107 Gb/s on a commercial transport platform with existing channels carrying live traffic (see technical papers NMC2 and OMQ4). As an important industry leader in the development and commercialization of high-speed components and modules, this participation in this field trial using 100 Gb/s technology is a clear demonstration that TeraXion's TDC technology is perfectly aligned with the long-term roadmap of their customers.

The new ClearSpectrum™-TDCX along with TeraXion's complete ClearSpectrum™ product line will be on display at the 2008 OFC/NFOEC exhibition (http://www.ofcnfoec.org/), booth # 1850, on February 26-28th, in San Diego, California.
