CoAdna Photonics Inc. has introduced a liquid crystal-based 25-GHz Flex Band wavelength-selective switch (WSS) for ROADM applications. The new 25-GHz Flex Band WSS will be demonstrated at CoAdna’s OFC/NFOEC 2011 Booth #1310 March 8-10, 2011.
CoAdna’s 25-GHz Flex Band WSS leverages the company’s proprietary LightFlow platform to offer what the company termed excellent performance with integrated functionalities of hitless wavelength selection and programmable bandwidth in one compact package. The WSS also provides remote configurability via embedded firmware and software, scalability, and low power consumption. The product features low insertion loss, flat and wide passband, and high extinction ratio for long haul, metro, and access applications, CoAdna says.
“CoAdna’s 25-GHz Flex Band adds a new product family to our product offerings of WB, WSS, and WXC by leveraging our matured technology and production experience with the LightFlow platform,” said Dr. Jack Kelly, CTO of CoAdna Photonics.
