  • In February 2003, Zhone Technologies acquired NEC Eluminant Technologies, a developer of optical access products, for an undisclosed sum. Products included in the acquisition include eLUMINANT's ISC-303 digital loop carrier, the VISTA Access SONET ADM, the RC-28D and RC-28E M13 multiplexers and the FD-6 fiber access multiplexer. NEC retained the rights to the FiberSLAM product and intellectual property associated with the passive optical networking (PON) system.


  • eLUMINANT was spun off from NEC America, Inc. in 1998. The company has raised $31 million in funding from ITOCHU Corporation, NEC USA, and Yasuda Enterprise Development Co., one of Japan's largest venture capital companies.
