Effect Photonics in supply agreement with Skylane Optics

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.

Leveraging its optical System-on-Chip technology by using its high performance photonic integration platform, EFFECT Photonics offers a narrow-band tunable DWDM SFP+ optical transceiver designed for telecom line-side applications. The costs associated with using EFFECT Photonics narrow-band tunable optical transceiver enables a reduction in sparing and provisioning costs by over 90%.

Skylane CEO, Philippe Bolle commented, “EFFECT Photonics’ narrow-band tunable optical transceiver addresses a need for telecom operators to reduce their sparing and provisioning costs. In addition, it solves the lack of availability of 10G DWDM fixed wavelength EML optical transceivers.”

VP Sales and Marketing, Robert Hughes commented, “We are extremely excited to be working with Skylane Optics to support them with this opportunity.”

Recently voted winner of the PIC International award for Advances in Photonic Integration, EFFECT Photonics is combining the performance and tunability of indium phosphide with the cost point of full optical integration to deliver transceiver solutions to industry standard module formats which provide savings in operational costs and capex.
