Feb. 28, 2001--Optical Communication Products Inc. announced the launch of its new family of DWDM optical transmitters for metropolitan area networks.

Optical Communication Products Inc. (Nasdaq:OCPI), a manufacturer of fiber optic subsystems and modules for metropolitan area networks and high-speed premises networks, announced the launch of its new family of DWDM optical transmitters for metropolitan area networks. OCP developed this family of DWDM transmitters in response to the demand for DWDM technology in metropolitan area networks.

OCP's new family of DWTX-48 transmitters are designed to work at data speeds from 100 Mb/s to 2.5 Gb/s and with all the major fiber optic protocols, including SONET, SDH, ATM, Fiber Channel and Gigabit Ethernet. The new transmitters complement OCP's existing family of DWDM optical receivers.

The DWTX-48 Laser Transmitters are designed to meet or exceed the SONET/SDH standards for DWDM OC-48/STM-16 Long Reach 1550 nm (80 km) specifications. They can also be used to transmit data in either Fiber Channel, Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet formats. The transmitter operating wavelength is in full compliance with the ITU-grid 100 GHz spacing requirement.

The DWTX-48 Laser Transmitters are contained in a compact, low-profile 24-pin package and operate from a single +3.3V supply.
