APRIL 14, 2010 - Optelian, a designer and manufacturer of optical network systems, announced acceptance from the Technical Standards Committee of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Utility Services (RUS) for its LightGAIN DWDM system.

The system supports up to 40 channels of OC-3/12/48/192, GbE, and 10 GbE traffic with optical fiber amplifiers (OFAs), dispersion compensation, and management.

USDA Rural Development provides low-interest financing to rural telephone companies for telecommunications infrastructure in smaller communities throughout the United States. In addition, the USDA administers a technical acceptance process to ensure that products will perform well in these networks before including them in their List of Acceptable Materials. Listed products are qualified to receive financing.

“Achieving RUS listing from the USDA demonstrates Optelian’s commitment to helping rural telephone companies deliver broadband and advanced services to their customers,” says John Spencer, business and technology strategist for Optelian. “Both Optelian’s LightGAIN DWDM and previously listed Hardened CWDM systems, with their low power consumption, ease-of-use, and outstanding reliability, are ideally suited for high-bandwidth transport in rural areas.”
