Fujitsu's FLASHWAVE 7500 ROADM Implements Mintera's 40G

Mintera's new MI 4000XM Adaptive-DPSK module has been implemented in Fujitsu FLASHWAVE 7500 Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) and is now carrying live 40 Gbps traffic over a commercial U.S. network.

The Adaptive-DPSK technology incorporated in the MI 4000XM DWDM module enables 40 Gbps transport on 50GHz channel-spaced systems and transmission over agile ROADM networks without compromising critical ULH reach. The unit conforms to the industry standard footprint and incorporates an electrical Mux/Demux for compatibility with any 40 Gbps framer. The module has a 300-pin MSA connector with support for the appropriate I2C commands, thus enabling simple hardware and software integration.

"Mintera's close and fruitful collaboration with Fujitsu has resulted in achievement of this key milestone," said Terry Unter, Mintera President and CEO. "Mintera is committed to provide the highest level of service and support to customers such as Fujitsu and to continue to deliver best-in-class solutions."http://www.mintera.com
