Polatis Cites Growing Demand for Photonic Cross-Connects in Data Centers

Polatis reported strong and growing demand for their latest Series 6000 192x192 optical switch, which was launched last year at OFC/NFOEC, leading the company to triple capacity at its European manufacturing plants.

"Our customers are telling us that traditional data center aggregation solutions cannot keep up with growing capacity demands" said Gerald Wesel, CEO Polatis, Inc. "The advent of optical circuit switch elements that integrate seamlessly with Software-Defined Network (SDN) control planes is poised to transform data centers by enabling new approaches that enhance performance while reducing costs. Polatis switches are ideally suited for the data center market as they have the best performance in the industry with exceptionally low loss and latency, fast switching and low power consumption."
