Polatis Reports Strong Demand for High Performance Photonic Cross-Connects

ANDOVER, MA and CAMBRIDGE, UK – Polatis, Inc., the performance leader in all-optical switch technology, today reported strong and growing demand for their latest Series 6000 192x192 optical switch following the product launch at OFC/NFOEC in 2012. The company has tripled capacity at its European manufacturing plants in response to customer demand in the carrier, data center and government systems markets.

Polatis will be exhibiting at OFC/NFOEC next week, March 19-21 on booth 3513 in Anaheim, California where it will have live demonstrations of the full range of DirectLight™ transparent optical routers, including the Series 6000 192x192 all-optical switch featuring ultra-low optical loss of typically less than 1dB. The company will also highlight how optical layer circuit switching facilitates the next generation of SDN-enabled energy-efficient data center solutions.

"Our customers are telling us that traditional data center aggregation solutions cannot keep up with growing capacity demands," said Gerald Wesel, CEO Polatis, Inc. "The advent of optical circuit switch elements that integrate seamlessly with Software-Defined Network (SDN) control planes is poised to transform data centers by enabling new approaches that enhance performance while reducing costs. Polatis switches are ideally suited for the data center market as they have the best performance in the industry with exceptionally low loss and latency, fast switching and low power consumption."
