EINDHOVEN -- Days after EFFECT Photonics announces the sampling of its low-cost narrow-band tunable DWDM SFP+ optical transceivers for next generation mobile networks, it enters into an agreement with Skylane Optics to supply line-side optical DWDM tunable SFP+ optical transceivers to telecom operators across Europe, North and South America.
Effect Photonics has announced a new, full-band tunable optical system-on-chip designed to meet the requirements of the expanding data centre interconnect (DCI) market.
