SEPTEMBER 19, 2010 -- TeraXion Inc. has introduced the ClearSpectrum-DCML, which the company asserts offers the market’s lowest latency for a fixed dispersion compensation module.

The ClearSpectrum-DCML is designed for high-speed DWDM networks that have to support low-latency services.

“With the current trend driven by financial services, our established FBG-based technology appears to be a necessity with its inherent low-latency below 25 ns. I strongly believe that with latency a thousand times smaller than the alternative DCF, the ClearSpectrum-DCML will provide a decisive competitive edge for system vendors,” said Martin Guy, vice-president of product management and technology at TeraXion.

The new dispersion compensating module supports 50-GHz channel spacing and low, flat insertion loss in an 80% smaller footprint than dispersion compensating fiber (DCF), according to TeraXion. Use of the device minimizes amplification requirements in cost-sensitive networks needing a plug-and-play option, the company adds.
