RSoft and Liekki add new fiber laser module for RSoft's OptSim

May 24, 2006 Ossining, NY and Lohja, Finland -- RSoft Design Group, provider of photonics design automation software, and Liekki Corp., supplier of highly doped optical fibers, have announced a new module for RSoft's optical communication simulation platform, OptSim, that incorporates fiber laser and amplifier subsystems designed with Liekki Application Designer (LAD).

May 24, 2006 Ossining, NY and Lohja, Finland -- RSoft Design Group, provider of photonics design automation software, and Liekki Corp., supplier of highly doped optical fibers, have announced a new module for RSoft's optical communication simulation platform, OptSim, that incorporates fiber laser and amplifier subsystems designed with Liekki Application Designer (LAD). According to the companies, this is the first time state-of-the-art fiber-laser simulation provided by a manufacturer will be available within an optical communication simulation platform.

Using the resultant simulation platform, OptSim and LAD users will be able to study the impact of erbium- and ytterbium-doped fiber lasers and amplifiers in the context of full-system designs. The module will supplement a variety of applications already available in OptSim, including FTTH/FTTP, PON, DWDM/CWDM, TDMA, OCDMA, CATV, soliton, optical interconnects, and extensive simulations of multimode systems. The module will be available as an add-on option to OptSim and can be obtained directly through RSoft Design Group.

"RSoft is committed to providing new and innovative solutions, including partnerships with other software vendors," says Dr. Robert Scarmozzino, CEO of Rsoft Design Group. "Both RSoft and Liekki win from this joint effort: RSoft with an extended application area and Liekki with access to RSoft's customer base and highly developed sales and marketing channels," he notes.

"We are pleased to partner with RSoft by including our LAD simulation software within the OptSim platform," adds Dr. Per Stenius, CEO of Liekki. "RSoft has a solid reputation in the photonics simulation and design and the joint effort will be a valuable contribution to the optoelectronics community."
