|Polatis launches and demonstrates new products in instrumentation, video, and network monitoring at OFC/NFOEC 2006|
Polatis announces expansion of product line at Optical Fiber Communications Conference 2006 in Anaheim, California
Boston, MA, February 8, 2006 - Polatis Inc, a supplier of high performance optical switch products, today announced its plans to release several core new products at OFC/NFOEC 2006. Polatis will be demonstrating these products as part of an exhibit aimed at users in the video broadcast, Government systems, instrumentation & test, and telecommunication networking segments. Attendees in Anaheim will be able to interact with switching demonstrations as part of a high definition video network, a remote fiber test system for network monitoring & fault location, and an automated test solution for optical modules. The live product demonstrations will take place in the Polatis booth #1940, during exhibition hours Tuesday March 7 through Thursday March 9.
OFC/NFOEC 2006 is the first tradeshow after the merger of Polatis Ltd with Continuum Photonics late in 2005, and the company will now be exhibiting as the combined business, Polatis Incorporated. With the merger, Polatis has strengthened its position in the optical systems industry, emerging as a world leader in optical switching. All of the Polatis products are based on the DirectLight platform - a beam-steering technology that sets the standard for optical performance. Polatis has carried this momentum forward, with an expanded product line, multiple manufacturing locations, and Sales and Support in North America, Europe, and now Asia.
At OFC/NFOEC 2006, Polatis will announce several entirely new products, marking a significant expansion to its existing product line of optical switches. These product introductions include:
"This OFC tradeshow is a testament to how seriously Polatis views its goal of leadership in the optical switch market", stated Dave Lewis, Polatis CEO. "We continue to demonstrate our ability to innovate and deploy products that solve important customer needs. We have the widest family of optical switch products, enabling us to address the largest number of markets. In every product, we deliver unparalleled performance - setting the benchmark for others to follow. Over the next six months you will see more exciting products, including those that address switching in the core of the network."
As part of its new product introductions, Polatis has planned live demonstrations of ten products to showcase the unique features and ultra-low loss performance. As part of the launch of the Trinity video product, Polatis will demonstrate optical switching of uncompressed high definition (HD) video signals in an end-to-end SMPTE-292 HD network. Polatis will integrate JDSU optical test equipment, as part of a "total test solution" demonstration, illustrating the power of a switch to effectively automate tests in design & production environments. JDSU has a worldwide distribution agreement with Polatis for its entire Instrumentation line of products. To illustrate the effectiveness of a switch as part of a fiber layer management strategy, Polatis will demonstrate the HPA product in a scenario where it will be used to actively monitor and locate fiber faults, and to allow restoration of services.
