OpVista Demonstrates Wavelength Tunability at OFC/NFOEC

Advances in Wavelength Tunability Play a Critical Role in the Development of Reconfigurable Optical Networks Needed to Handle the Growing Demands of Video

MILPITAS, Calif., March 26 -- OpVista today announced the live demonstration of the OpVista2000(TM) fully tunable10GbE DWDM Transponder at OFC/NFOEC 2007 in Anaheim, CA at Intel's booth, number 3508.

Fully tunable across the entire C-band of frequencies, the OpVista 10GbE DWDM transponder card delivers complete flexibility in network provisioning, primarily for metro and regional services. The card features dispersion tolerance up to 80km and incorporates forward error correction (FEC). When coupled with OpVista's ROADM Interface Card, the TR71 delivers a high degree of both capital and operating expense savings.

OpVista 10GbE DWDM card is based on full C-band tunable Intel® TXN13600 series transponder. The Intel transponder has a narrow line width and high accuracy for applications in high channel count DWDM systems. Low power consumption minimizes the total system power budget.

"The joint demonstration between OpVista and Intel showcases the full flexibility of a tunable transponder," said Dawn Hogh, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at OpVista. "This transponder, in conjunction with other OpVista2000 product offerings, provides operators with solutions that leverage their existing capital investments in network infrastructure, including both fiber and network electronics, in order to achieve cost-effective increases in bandwidth, higher operational savings, and an 'anywhere, anytime' model of service delivery."

About OpVista

Universally compatible with existing DWDM systems and fiber plant, the OpVista2000 product family provides the most effective way for carriers to boost metro and regional network capacity to meet exploding consumer and business demand for high-bandwidth video, such as HDTV, and IP-based services. Carriers can quadruple the number of wavelength services and corresponding capacity in first generation systems by simply installing OpVista transceivers at each end of the network. Using OpVista's unique "optical multicasting: solution, carriers can deliver bandwidth in single wavelength increments to any node at any time. As carriers make the transition to IP and Ethernet- based services, OpVista is there to help you realize greater revenue and reduce both operating and capital expenditures. OpVista is based in Milpitas, CA. For more information visit opvista.com.
