Finisar unveils Flexgrid WSS technology

Helps ensure bandwidth-efficiency in telecom networks

By CBR Staff Writer

Wavelength Selective Switches (WSS) provider Finisar, has introduced its new Flexgrid technology, which enables dynamic control of channel center frequency and channel bandwidth within a WSS, from 50 GHz to 200 GHz in 12.5 GHz steps.

Finisar said that Flexgrid draws upon the inherent flexibility and performance of the company’s Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) optical engine to address carrier demand for flexible bandwidth-capable ROADMs in NxG networks.

Craig Cameron, product line manager of Finisar, said: "We believe the combination of advanced optics, compact packaging, and powerful software with a versatile LCoS optical engine provides a flexible wavelength switching solution of unmatched performance and functionality to meet carrier needs, both now and in the future."
