Luxcore to demonstrate third generation, all-optical switching system

March 14, 2001
Mar. 14, 2001--Luxcore Networks, Inc., a developer of pure optical internetworking systems, will demonstrate its lambdaXchange third generation, all-optical switching system at the Optical Fiber Communications Conference this month in Anaheim, Calif.

Luxcore Networks, Inc., a developer of pure optical internetworking systems, will demonstrate its lambdaXchange third generation, all-optical switching system in Booth 3474 at the Optical Fiber Communications Conference, March 19-21, in Anaheim, Calif.

The lambdaXchange optical switching system uses all-optical wavelength conversion, eliminating the need for intermediate electrical conversions and regeneration within backbone transport networks.

"A technology for optically performing wavelength conversion is a necessary step in eliminating O-E-O conversions in optical networks. Luxcore is the only company I am aware of that is offering this technology." said David Krozier, Senior Analyst at industry analyst firm RHK, Inc.

Luxcore believes this will be the first truly pure, all-optical switch, a cornerstone network element of the optical Internet. Gerald Ramdeen, CEO and CTO of Luxcore, claims it will enable network service providers to offer time-of-day routing, bandwidth-on-demand and wavelength reuse, while benefiting from low cost of ownership and unlimited scalability. The technology integrates all-optical wavelength conversion, photonic switching, and add/drop and tunable DWDM transmission capabilities in a single platform.
