ADC to Market Calient's Photonic Switch

ADC will market Calient Networks' photonic switching systems and software as part of its solutions to address fiber-intensive networks such as central offices, data centers, and test facilities. Installing, managing, and maintaining thousands of fiber connections in these facilities can become time-consuming and error-prone when managed manually. The agreement leverages expertise from both companies to create new solutions for fiber-intensive networks. A new product, marketed as the Calient Automated Fiber Management (AFM) solution, integrates Calient's DiamondWave optical switch and ADC's fiber distribution frame technology.

The Calient AFM solution's scalable, low-loss photonic switching technology provides software-reconfigurable fiber connectivity, enabling service providers to remotely manage fiber infrastructure, configure the network, and localize faults. The result is quicker service provisioning, more accurate infrastructure records, and optimized utilization of valuable capital and human resources. The Calient AFM solution can scale to support 64 to 640 fiber terminations.
