WASACE plans submarine cable linking four continents
WASACE Cable Company Worldwide has announced ambitious plans to build a new submarine cable system connecting four continents – Africa, South America, North America, and Europe.It will be the first cable system designed to use 100-Gbps transmission technology from the outset, the company claims.  (Although it's not the only company with plans to use such technology; see "NTT Com plans 100G for PC-1 transpacific submarine cable network" and "Hibernia Atlantic plots transatlantic 100G course after trials with Huawei.") And it could be the first major cable to connect the developing markets in Brazil and Africa (although the planned “South Atlantic Express” cable could get there first).The project will be divided into four sections: WASACE North connecting Europe to North America, WASACE South connecting South America to Africa, WASACE America connecting South America to North America, and WASACE Africa connecting Nigeria, Angola, and South Africa. The system represents a total investment of billions of US dollars from investors on four continents, including the private equity investment firm VIP Must International, represented by CEO Patrick Perrin, and the African Development Bank, represented by COO Raymond Zoupko, as well as Brazilian and other investors.WASACE Cable Company is headed by CEO Ramon Gil-Roldan. Project development will be handled by The David Ross Group, which has advised more than 20 undersea cable projects in the last 10 years.  The project is thought to be in early planning stages; the management team has yet to be named, and no deployment schedule was provided.
Digital Lightwave offers multi-port 10-Gbps testing
Digital Lightwave, Inc. has announced multi-port 10-Gbps capabilities for its Network Information Computer (NIC) Platform. The NIC Plus chassis now supports up to five MSA-series modules, each supporting optional 10-Gbps Ethernet, SONET/SDH, Optical Transport Network (OTN), and Fibre Channel testing.Specifically, the MSA 2020/2030 modules can support Ethernet 10/100/1000/GbE/10GbE, SONET/SDH from 51 Mbps to 10 Gbps, Fibre Channel 1/2/4/8/10G, and OTN rates including OTU-1, OTU-2, OTU-1e, and OTU-2e. Each module is licensed separately to enhance flexibility. A NIC equipped with five MSA modules is capable of testing five 10-Gbps ports and 10 lower-speed Ethernet or Fibre Channel ports simultaneously."Deployment of 10-Gbps circuits worldwide is growing at a rate of approximately 14 percent annually," said Michael Weldon, Digital Lightwave’s vice president of international sales. "Testing multiple ports simultaneously reduces the overall test time and provides more thorough testing. Our customers are able to deploy networks more efficiently than ever before, saving time and money and leading to better customer satisfaction."MSA-series modules can be used in Portable NIC units for central office and field testing, as well as the NIC EP rackmount chassis for lab and manufacturing use. The NIC Plus supports additional custom configurations, including what Digital Lightwave asserts is the industry's only dual 40G/100G testing in a portable chassis.
NeoPhotonics to double Santur narrow-linewidth tunable laser production
It isn’t taking long for NeoPhotonics Corp. (NYSE: NPTN) to leverage the assets it recently acquired when it bought Santur Corp. (see “NeoPhotonics agrees to acquire Santur”). NeoPhotonics says it is in the process of doubling production capacity for the narrow-linewidth tunable lasers it received in the deal.The lasers come in an OIF MSA standard ITLA form factor and are targeted at 40- and 100-Gbps coherent applications. They offer up to 35 mW launch power in the C-Band and 20 mW in the L-Band.NeoPhotonics will use production facilities in Shenzhen to manufacture the lasers. The company does not use Fabrinet as a contract manufacturer and therefore has not been affected directly by the flooding in Thailand that has damaged the production capabilities of some of its competitors. (That doesn’t mean it will be completely unaffected, however – see “NeoPhotonics third quarter revenue disappoints.”)“Our narrow-linewidth tunable lasers are key components for coherent transport in telecommunications systems, which we believe is rapidly emerging as a dominate architecture for 40- and 100-Gbps networks,” said Tim Jenks, CEO of NeoPhotonics. “We believe there is currently a shortage of these critical products while demand continues to grow. We are in the process of more than doubling our production capacity of narrow-linewidth tunable lasers with minimal expected additional capital expenditures. We anticipate our added capacity to be on-line in the first quarter of 2012.”
