MARCH 20, 2007 -- Peleton Photonic Systems (search for Peleton) announced today that it has developed what it claims is the world's first multi-channel laser array (MCLA) product designed for deployment in communication systems, particularly WDM systems for broadband networks.
The first product in this family, the MCLA-32100, offers 32 DWDM wavelengths spaced by 100 GHz on the ITU grid, in a compact module directly mountable on a system line card. The company will now focus on commercializing the module and plans to begin shipping samples in May of this year.
Peleton says its product should enable systems designers to economically harness the benefits of DWDM in the access network. Peleton asserts its MCLA products will deliver the cost, size, and performance necessary to enable the transition to a truly scalable, flexible, and secure broadband world.
"Employing a wavelength-division multiplexed, passive optical network is the only way service providers can future proof their broadband infrastructure and protect their investment," said Richard Pepin, president and CEO, Peleton Photonic Systems. "Our goal as we were developing our MCLA product was to break the economic barriers to mass deployment of WDM-PON. Not only were we able to achieve this, but the performance of our laser is so good that it could even be used for long haul transmission"
Prototypes of the new module will be demonstrated at OFC/NFOEC in the Anaheim Convention Center, March 27-29, 2007, Booth #1210.
