Kailight Photonics tapped by US NRL

June 21, 2005 Dallas, TX -- Kailight Photonics announced that it has received a purchase order for its Tunable All-optical Signal Regenerator (TASR) product line from the US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL).

Kailight says its TASR line provides fast-switching, tunable, all-optical devices designed to operate within optical regenerators, switches, routers, add/drop multiplexers and cross-connects, at bit-rates ranging from 1 Gbit/sec to 43 Gbit/sec. The company says the products can dramatically reduce network complexity and cost by enabling all-optical network transparency for wavelength conversion and signal regeneration, while also supporting advanced optical chromatic dispersion and PMD compensation.

"Kailight's TASR offers the flexibility, value, and performance criteria that many carriers and end-users are now demanding for their networks," remarks Sagie Tsadka, CEO of Kailight. "We are pleased that the TASR product line will be able to support the Naval Research Laboratory's optical networking needs."

Kailight also announced its completion of an over-subscribed $2.0 million funding round from its current investors. The company says the new financing will allow it to address multiple customer requests for its TASR technology.
