TeraXion Launches Low-Latency Dispersion Compensator at ECOC 2010

QUEBEC CITY, CANADA--(Marketwire - Sept. 15, 2010) - TeraXion Inc., a provider of leading-edge photonic solutions that enable today and tomorrow's communications networks, proudly announces the introduction of the ClearSpectrum™-DCML, offering the market's lowest latency for a fixed dispersion compensation module.

The latest addition to TeraXion's Fixed Dispersion Compensators product suite, the ClearSpectrum™-DCML is perfectly suited for high-speed DWDM networks that have to support low-latency services. "With the current trend driven by financial services, our established FBG-based technology appears to be a necessity with its inherent low-latency below 25 ns. I strongly believe that with latency a thousand times smaller than the alternative DCF, the ClearSpectrum™-DCML will provide a decisive competitive edge for system vendors" said Martin Guy, Vice-President of Product Management and Technology at TeraXion.

Based on the fact that 50 GHz channel spacing and low flat insertion loss are now available in an 80% smaller footprint than DCF (Dispersion Compensating Fiber), the ClearSpectrum™ – DCML is clearly the most efficient and reliable solution for fixed dispersion compensation. Moreover, amplification requirements can now be minimized in cost-sensitive networks needing a plug-and-play solution.

The ClearSpectrum™-DCML will be on display from September 20 to 22nd at the ECOC 2010 exhibition in Torino, Italy, booth # 420.
