iolon Inc., designer and manufacturer of tunable optical devices, announced today that shipments of Apollo-L, its high power, widely tunable L-band external cavity laser, began to Innovance Networks last July under a long term, multi-million dollar contract.

"Tunable lasers eliminate the complexity associted with wavelength management in today's networks and are an essential ingredient in allowing service providers to move beyond static point-to-point WDM systems towards agile, transparent networks," explains Peter Allen, president and chief operating officer of Innovance Networks. "Tunability enables dynamic, build-to-order, core networks offering faster service turn-up, increased capital efficiency, and significantly lower operating costs."

"The fact that iolon was able to bring to market and ship its 20-mW, 100-channel L-band product in quantity has clearly established iolon as the market leader in tunable lasers, offering new design opportunities for network designers," contends Jim Jungjohann, industry analyst at CIBC World Markets.

Headquartered in San Jose, CA, iolon, Inc. manufactures tunable optical components for intelligent optical networks. For more information, visit the company's Web site at www.iolon.com.

Innovance Networks delivers a portfolio of agile, intelligent photonic networking solutions that enable service providers to build profitable, next-generation core optical networks. For more information, visit www.innovance.com.
