Axsun Technologies To Present New Products At The 2013 OFC/NFOEC Exhibition

BILLERICA, Mass., March 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Axsun Technologies Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Volcano Corporation (NASDAQ: VOLC) and a leading developer and manufacturer of advanced photonic components and subsystems, will highlight their new Optical Engine products for Telecommunications at the upcoming 2013 OFC/NFOEC Exhibition at the Anaheim Convention Center on March 19-21, 2013.  A number of Axsun's new products will be displayed at booth 3419, including its latest ultra-high resolution, Flex Grid and Super-Channel capable Optical Channel Monitors (OCMs), and advanced compact MEMs Tunable Filter and micro-Tunable-Detector Modules.  These products provide very high spectral resolution and Embedded Optical Spectrum Analyzer (OSA) functionality for optical network management and performance monitoring.  Axsun Telecom products have logged over one billion device hours in optical networks operating around the world since 2001. 

"Modern optical networks are transitioning from fixed-wavelength ITU-grid based systems to dynamically spectrally reconfigurable Flex Grid networks that transmit coherent Super-Channels with 100G, 400G to terabit-per-second data rates with significantly increased spectral efficiency and data capacity through real-time management of the full optical spectrum," said Dale C. Flanders, President of Axsun. "Axsun's OCM and Tunable Detector products are ideally suited for the real-time optical spectrum monitoring function required in such networks, providing a cost effective solution with high spectral resolution and measurement accuracy."
