Partnership delivers deployment of Polatis' New Optical Switch Module (OSM)
Andover, MASSACHUSETTS and Cambridge, UK – March 23, 2010 – Polatis, the performance leader in all-optical switch technology, has expanded its existing distributorship agreement with JDSU. Under the existing agreement, JDSU integrates Polatis products as part of its portfolio of test solutions for the lab and production markets. With the expanded agreement, JDSU will integrate Polatis products with its solutions for two additional markets: the Fiber to the Home (FTTH) Monitoring and System Integration & Test (SIT) Labs market; as well as the Government, Aerospace and Defense market.
"We certainly value our partnership with JDSU and are pleased to be broadening our successful distributorship agreement," said Gerald Wesel, CEO at Polatis. "The demand for optical switching as an important element for both current and future applications, as a standalone solution or integrated into equipment manufacturers’ products, continues to rapidly grow. Working with JDSU helps us address that demand."
One of the initial successes of the expanded distributorship is the shipment and integration of Polatis' Optical Switch Module (OSM) into a telecommunications equipment platform, through a large telecom systems integrator. The OSM is a 96x96 component level product that enables telecommunications equipment manufacturers to integrate Polatis' industry-leading optical switching into their existing platforms.
"Test automation and connectivity further reduce costs and Polatis optical switches enable JDSU customers to implement our wide-ranging physical layer testers in a more cost-effective way," said Gegs Jones, JDSU product line manager. "The agreement with Polatis further leverages what each company does best and we look forward to the value it brings to JDSU customers."
