Announced in 2001, Agere's S5200 3D MEMS optical switch module is a small-form-factor device used to manipulate optical signals without the need to convert the signals to electrical form, allowing any protocol or data rate to pass through the switch.
Partnership delivers deployment of Polatis' New Optical Switch Module (OSM)
amp; SAN FRANCISCO -- SA Photonics, an engineering company focused on photonics-based solutions, today announced its win of the US Air Force Phase 2 SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) contract to build a space-qualified MEMS switch system, using the Glimmerglass Intelligent Optical switch module.
Based on system vendors' and carriers' needs for reliable and programmable optical components, Baynet Optics introduced today its Short and Medium Working Distance Collimators, one-channel Variable Optical Attenuator (VOA), and 1x2 Optical Switch Module (OSM).
The live demonstration uses micro-electro mechanical systems (MEMS)-based optical switch modules supplied by Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW), an industry-leading manufacturer and supplier of optical fiber, cable and photonic products.
APIC's product portfolio ultimately will include, in addition to compact optical modules, such integrated solutions as: optical add/drop multiplexers modules, optical switch modules and a variety of sub-system modules.
Newhouse went on to say that Corning Optical Networking Devices is focused on extending the transparent optical frontier, including the elimination of non-value added OEO (optical to electrical back to optical) conversions in communications networks, through the development of reconfigurable optical add/drop modules and optical switch modules.
As far as competing with small port count MEMS switch companies and other technologies, such as holographic switching, we believe Lynx offers the first and currently only available optical switch modules that are capable of switching a full spectrum of wavelengths, as well as individual wavelengths, in millisecond switching time with astounding functionality.
