OMM MEMS-based optical switches pass Telcordia
July 18, 2001--OMM claims to be the first and only manufacturer of MEMS-based photonic switches to meet the standard.
OMM announced that its photonic switching subsystems conform to Telcordia Technologies' environmental and reliability requirements for carrier-class equipment. OMM claims to be the first and only manufacturer of MEMS-based photonic switches to meet the standard.
The OMM-applicable Telcordia analysis subjected OMM switches to an array of tests, including mechanical integrity and endurance. Telcordia conformance is a critical requirement for widespread commercial deployment of MEMS-based photonic switching subsystems within telecommunications networks.
"OMM's MEMS-based photonic switch subsystems now conform to applicable environmental and reliability standards in Telcordia GR-1073-CORE, GR-1221-CORE and GR-468-CORE," said Phil Chapman, President and CEO of OMM, Inc..
In April, 2001, OMM announced that it received ISO 9001 certification for its corporate quality management system.
Founded in 1997, OMM is a supplier of photonic switching subsystems based upon MEMS technology (micro electro-mechanical systems). OMM products enable communications equipment manufacturers to build the next generation of fiber-optic switching systems for the long haul, metropolitan and local access segments of the global communications network.
