Polatis secures $4M of debt financing to fund continued growth
Polatis Inc., a developer of all-optical switch technology, says it has secured $4 million of debt financing through Clydesdale Bank to support the company's continued global growth.The funds will be used primarily to expand Polatis’ in-house manufacturing capability to meet customer demand for the company’s latest Series 6000 optical matrix switch, which enables transparent connectivity for up to 192x192 fiber ports (see “Polatis goes large with 192x192 all-optical switch”). It will also enable the company to fast track product development for customers in growth markets such as telecom networks, data center interconnect, and government systems.“We are delighted to secure the $4 million of debt financing this week,” said Gerald Wesel, president and CEO of Polatis. “This will enable us to better respond to the increasing demand we are seeing from our customers for Polatis’ leading-edge switch technology and further supports our business plans for continued growth and product development for the next generation of technology.”
Angola Cables enhances connectivity with 100G technology from Alcatel-Lucent
Angola Cables, a consortium of Angolan telecommunications operators, is establishing a terrestrial fiber-optic link with the West African Cable System (WACS), the submarine communications network connecting the countries of West Africa with Europe. The new fiber-optic network in Angola – established using 100G coherent optical technologies from Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) – will support Internet services for customers of communications service providers in Angola as well as in neighboring countries, dramatically increasing Internet availability in this underserved region.As its name implies, WACS runs up the western coast of Africa, connecting the southern part of the continent with Europe as far north as the UK (see “WACS to extend submarine cable system from Portugal to the UK with Alcatel-Lucent’s 40G optical technology”).The four-fiber-pair system spans approximately 16,000 km and connects 15 terminal stations.Antonio Nunes, the CEO of Angola Cables, said that while Angola has connectivity to the outside world, the new 100-Gbps connection to the WACS will increase in the availability of communications services and provide stronger connections with the global community for consumers and businesses in Angola and throughout the region.Daniel Jaeger, vice-president of Alcatel-Lucent Africa, added, “Alcatel-Lucent is deeply committed to the vision of digital inclusion, and we are gratified by the opportunity to help bring world class communications services to the people of Angola and their neighbors.”
SONET/SDH sales shrinkage weighs down optical hardware sales in 3Q12 says Infonetics
Continued growth in spending on WDM equipment was not enough to offset the steep decline in SONET/SDH system revenues, leading to a 2% sequential decline in fiber-optic network hardware sales in the third quarter of 2012. Infonetics Research reported the details in its 3Q12 Optical Network Hardware vendor market share report.The disappointing results came after a successful 2Q12 (see "Infonetics: Optical network systems revenue jumps 15% in 2Q12"). Sales of WDM equipment grew 6.9% sequentially in 3Q12, Infonetics says. However, SONET/SDH sales dropped 19% versus the previous quarter and 33% year-on-year."Investment in new WDM gear is growing, but it isn't growing fast enough to offset the accelerated declines in SONET/SDH," says Andrew Schmitt, principal analyst for optical at Infonetics Research and author of the report. "SONET/SDH spending hit another all-time low in the third quarter, as architectural shifts in wireless backhaul quicken its transition into obsolescence. Carriers aren't allocating scarce capital to out-of-date equipment."Overall optical network hardware sales in North America and Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) were “relatively weak,” Schmitt and Infonetics report. However, Schmitt expects North American revenues to resume moderate growth in 4Q12, thanks to more spending from AT&T and Verizon.Schmitt sees other rays of light on the horizon. "On a brighter note, there's an investment cycle set to begin next year in the core network that's based on 100G coherent and supported by the massive ramp in 100G prototyping and trialing activities that are already underway worldwide," he says.NEC, Fujitsu, and Infinera made the best of 3Q12, with success in ROADM sales increasing their revenues by double digits. Conversely, Alcatel-Lucent suffered its worst quarter ever, with particular weakness in its WDM sales.
