Ausanda Communications

Ausanda has developed a novel fibre-optic telecommunications technology known as DWDM-Lite?. It involves photonic chips and is designed to provide breakthrough enhancement to the widely deployed Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) fibre-optic transmission technology. This breakthrough enables existing comms fibre and all legacy line amplifiers to carry much greater capacity with only a line card change at each end. No upgrade needed in the middle. It will enable 10Gbps to carry 40 (and then on to 100Gbps, when those standards are set). In part it uses extraordinarily sensitive receivers, with the creation of some really ?square? filters, hence measuring well above the noise floor, can also jamb a lot more in. Thus it can significantly change the capital and operational costs incurred by telecommunication carriers globally, as they continue their rollout of telecommunication bandwidth infrastructure. An Australian example is the Australia?s National Broadband Network (NBN).
