The WSS-100 will be on display at ECOC in Amsterdam later this month.

“SANTEC’s WSS has many advantages for next-generation ROADMs,” said Dr. Noboru Uehara, department manager of R&D of SANTEC. “We are extremely pleased with the advantages of LCOS technology in our WSS, which provides software-oriented flexible and intelligent solutions for our customers.”
