Lumentum unveils Trueflex Nano small form factor WSS

Lumentum has added a small form factor TrueFlex Nano 1x9 wavelength-selective switch (WSS) to its portfolio for reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer (ROADM) applications.

Thinner than its predecessor, the new TrueFlex Nano 1x9 WSS is small enough to fit into a single-slot line card in optical networking systems. This next-generation device is 42 per cent smaller than conventional products and requires less operating power, the company claims.
