"Modern optical networks are transitioning from fixed-wavelength ITU-grid
based systemsto 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
