Mar. 28, 2001--JDS Uniphase Corporation (Nasdaq: JDSU and TSE: JDU) announced 70 new products, presented in a new network solutions approach that it introduced at the Optical Fiber Communications conference in March.

JDS Uniphase Corporation (Nasdaq: JDSU and TSE: JDU) announced 70 new products, presented in a new network solutions approach that it introduced at the Optical Fiber Communications conference in March. A broad array of new products was also assembled from across its portfolio into a live, end-to-end demonstration.

The solutions approach focuses on four key areas of network design: increasing capacity, reach, flexibility and reliability. The four solutions evolved from the company's focus to better understand network requirements and anticipate customer needs.

The four major categories correspond with the major demands placed on systems and service providers:

Network Capacity

The need to expand the network to accommodate additional traffic continues to be a focus for fiber optic system providers as the demand for bandwidth continues to grow. As part of this solution JDS Uniphase introduced new DWDM products, which increase the number of simultaneous channels that carry signals in a fiber, as well as the 40 Gb/s Intensity Modulator and the Tunable Dispersion Compensator which will help enable the next generation of higher speed systems.

Network Reach

Fiber optic equipment providers must reduce the number of regeneration points in order to provide the farthest reach possible at the lowest cost. New products that JDS Uniphase introduced include the Dynamic Gain Equalizer and Raman C+L Band Amplifiers.

Network Flexibility

Fiber optic equipment suppliers must provide systems with enhanced flexibility to redirect capacity to meet usage demands. JDS Uniphase displayed network flexibility solutions with products such as the Tunable Add/Drop, which uses MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) to provide dynamic switching capability.

Network Reliability

Reliability becomes a concern for network equipment suppliers and service providers deploying mission-critical services as more data flows over the Internet. JDS Uniphase introduced new, smaller switches using MEMS and MOMS (micro opto-mechanical systems) technology and new monitoring products from modules to full-featured devices measuring power, signal-to-noise and wavelength.

JDS Uniphase exhibited products from across its range of fiber optic technologies -- including 40 Gb/s modulators, tunable lasers, dynamic gain equalizers, 25 GHz interleavers, 10 Gb/s transponders, VMUX (AWG with integrated variable attenuator), MEMS and MOMS switches, and optical performance monitors.
