SEPTEMBER 3, 2008 -- Proximion Fiber Systems AB (search for Proximion) has debuted a new single-channel dispersion compensation module (DCM-SC). The DCM-SC is designed to deliver increased flexibility and superior performance in a small form factor. In addition, the wide optical bandwidth and the low group delay ripple ensure high transmission quality, according to Proximion.

The DCM-SC extends single-channel SDH/SONET/GE system reach otherwise limited by the dispersion tolerance of the transceivers. The low loss of the DCM-SC enables a obviates the need for amplifiers in a cost-effective way. Proximion offers the option of different customized wavelengths suitable for other applications and network configurations.

"The DCM-SC is perfect for those customers that need a cost-effective product with a small form factor as well as wavelength flexibility," says Stefan Ekman, CEO at Proximion. "The importance of dispersion management is increasing in all parts of the networks. We are already an established supplier to a number of systems vendors for applications up to 40 Gbits/sec and have a complete product portfolio of dispersion management solutions. This new addition to our product line underscores our position in the industry and dedication to innovation."

Proximion says its proprietary fiber Bragg grating manufacturing technology produces high-performance dispersion compensation modules with the advantages of having no non-linear effects or latency and having a very low power loss compared to the alternative of traditional dispersion compensating fibers (DCFs).

DCM-SC is currently available on volume basis.
