OpVista unveiled its dense multi-carrier (DMC) technology that was designed for 40 Gigabit and 100 Gigabit transmission per wavelength across all types of optical networks from metro to ultra-long-haul.

OpVista said DMC delivers fiber capacity of up to eight terabits/sec, using 10G engineered networks, at economical cost levels appropriate for metro, regional networks and long-haul networks. DMC technology is included in the new OpVista CX8 optical networking system, which will be introduced at next month’s NXTComm08 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"DMC technology, which will be incorporated into all of OpVista's future products, is a universal solution for cost-efficiently achieving 40G and 100G across metro to ultra-long-haul networks," said Karl May, Chief Executive Officer, OpVista. "DMC allows service providers to achieve ever-higher levels of bandwidth to enable the delivery of additional services. Critically, DMC’s ability to leverage 10G component maturity and scale ensures access to supply and economies of scale that will continue to reduce cost over time."

OpVista’s DMC technology combines advanced multiple carrier photonics, lambda stabilization and multi-level modulation to deliver 40G and 100G bandwidth per wavelength, while maintaining compatibility with the characteristics of today's 10G optical infrastructure. OpVista said the DMC platform is currently in trials both here and abroad in Europe.
