21 February 2003 -- Civcom, Petach-Tikva, Israel, the developer of multi-function free-space technology solutions for next-gen optical networks, has reported continued growth in China and the Asian market.
In a period in which many telecom equipment suppliers face a depressed global market, Civcom is selling to major system houses and research institutes in China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Singapore.
The company says that the advantages of its Free-X switches, with no moving parts, ultra-fast speed and integrated features are attracting interest and concrete action in Asia Pacific. Some of the largest Chinese fibre-optic system vendors are already testing Civcom's Free-X products.
The company says it identified the region early on as a high potential market for next generation optical technology, both in advanced telecom networks, such as in Japan, and in emerging deployment, as in the huge Chinese market. Civcom has appointed distributors in its main Asian Pacific markets.
Jacob Vertman, Senior VP of Business Development, said, "We identified serious potential in Asia Pacific, and selectively targeted our marketing efforts to this region. Our decision has been well-rewarded and we plan to further strengthen and expand our involvement in the region".
SFS technology, based on free space propagation (FSP) and polarisation encoding of optical signals, enables ultra-fast, polarisation independent switching in a compact package. Moreover, having no moving parts Civcom's switch is stable and reliable while exhibiting very low loss.
