JDSU and Mintera form partnership to provide 40G solution to telecom industry

Oct. 19, 2007
October 19, 2007, Milpitas, CA and Acton, MA--JDSU has formed a strategic partnership with Mintera, a high bit-rate optical transport systems company, to provide a complete 40 gigabits per second (40G) solution set to the telecom industry. The partnership will combine Mintera's dense-wavelength-division-multiplexing (DWDM) 40G transmission technology with JDSU's 40G-capable optical communications products and test and measurement solutions.

October 19, 2007, Milpitas, CA and Acton, MA--JDSU has formed a strategic partnership with Mintera, a high bit-rate optical transport systems company, to provide a complete 40 gigabits per second (40G) solution set to the telecom industry. The partnership will combine Mintera's dense-wavelength-division-multiplexing (DWDM) 40G transmission technology with JDSU's 40G-capable optical communications products and test and measurement solutions, while leveraging JDSU's manufacturing and supply-chain expertise.

Joint development will include a 40G DWDM transponder module that will be standardized according to 300 pin Multi Source Agreement (MSA) guidelines. The transponder will be available in the first half of calendar year 2008. In addition to developing the 40G transponder with JDSU, Mintera will also incorporate its unique and patent-pending adaptive-differential phase-shift keying (ADPSK) technology into the transponder. ADPSK enables optimal transmission of 40G signals over 50 GHz channels in reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer (ROADM)-enabled optical networks, a configuration commonly used in long haul and metro networks.

"There is strong demand for 40G components, although the market is still in its early commercial phase," said Daryl Inniss, vice president and practice leader of Communications Components at Ovum RHK, a telecom market research firm. "A mature supply chain is needed for mass commercialization of 40G solutions and collaborations like these can help pave the way for widespread acceptance."
