Lightwave Innovation Review award 2016

Each year Lightwave convenes a panel of independent judges to evaluate new products and score them on based on their innovation. This year we scored a “perfect 5” with the Nokia 1830 PSS 500G Muxponder! Judges were wowed by the card’s flexible capabilities, which are powered by the PSE-2 optical chipset: One judge said: “I believe this product will be the first for both dual-carrier PSE, single-carrier 400G, while in a reasonably dense footprint. It may also be the first commercial product to operate at 45 Gbaud.” On hand at OFC to receive the Lightwave Innovation Review award from Lightwave publisher Rob Stuehrk (left) was Optical Networks head Sam Bucci (center) and Optical Networks marketing head Kyle Hollasch.
