Pirelli Subsidiary Launched

Photonics Spectra
Nov 2005
Pirelli Broadband Solutions SpA, a company within the Pirelli Group of Milan, Italy, was officially launched at the European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC) in September. The company released its first products -- the City8 coarse wavelength division multiplexer and a dynamically tunable laser -- at the Glasgow, UK, event.
City8 is a carrier-class platform that provides high-bandwidth services over a single fiber pair. With eight or 16 channels, it supports time division multiplexing and data communications interfaces.
The DTL C13 series dynamically tunable continuous-wave, external-cavity laser for advanced dense wavelength division multiplexing systems is housed in hermetically sealed 26-pin butterfly packaging. The C-band laser source meets Telcordia GR-468-CORE qualification requirements, with no moving parts required for tuning.
Supported by Pirelli Labs, which was founded in 2001 with an initial investment of €135 million, Pirelli Broadband Solutions reported revenues of approximately €64 million in the first half of 2005.
