Zenastra Photonics Inc., a new provider of integrated optical components for high performance networking systems, announced that the company has received its first orders and is shipping sample products to customers.

Zenastra has shipped sample units and signed purchase orders with three systems manufacturers. These manufacturers will field test and deploy the devices as part of new system development programs.

Zenastra's engineering and R&D teams are working closely with customer systems design teams to design Zenastra components into their next-generation optical systems. These single function integrated components are the building blocks used to develop more highly integrated optical components that deliver unprecedented levels of cost and yield improvement and meet system designer need for more agile and flexible optical networks.

Zenastra recently expanded the capacity of its single function integrated passive components portfolio to include a 40-channel Array Waveguide Gratings Multiplexer (AWG) and a 10-channel Variable Optical Attenuator (VOA) and introduced its family of second generation multi-function integrated passive optical devices. The initial offering addresses metro dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) optical systems requirements and will grow to higher channel counts to address changing market needs. The components include a fully integrated eight-channel configurable optical add/drop multiplexer (COADM8) and an eight-channel variable optical attenuator multiplexer/demultiplexer (VMUX8).
