DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 16, 2002

Demo of second-generation, etalon-based, tunable, dispersion

compensation module shows low insertion loss in a compact size

Accumux Technologies gives live demonstrations of its second-generation, dynamically tunable, etalon based dispersion compensation module (DCM) at its booth #1120 at the National Fiber Optic Engineering Conference (NFOEC) in Dallas. The demo displays the DCM's group delay, chromatic dispersion, polarization mode dispersion, insertion loss, and polarization dependent loss in real-time.

This etalon-based DCM demonstrates a high figure of merit, low group delay ripple, a compact size, field-selectable chromatic dispersion tuning, an ITU-grid-matched 100 GHz channel spacing, and complete band coverage for data rates of up to 10 Gb/s. The data from the demo will cover the entire 40 plus channels on the C-band as well as any selected channel within the C-band.

"Our second-generation DCM active demo will show that etalon-based DCMs are the most effective and realistic solution for dispersion in today's market," says Ross Kocen, VP of Marketing at Accumux. "We are able to offer the industry's most compact product with the most number of channels."

The particular version of DCM to be on display has been designed to complement Legacy transmission fiber (SMF-28 or the like) in both chromatic dispersion and chromatic dispersion slope. This live demo will be performed using an Optical Vector Analyzer for rapid scanning updates. Accumux's Light Fixer(TM) DCM start at $3,000 for 50 channels and will be shipping in production quantities early 2003.

Visit Accumux Technologies at NFOEC and view their active DCM demo at booth number 1120.
