Xtellus Secures Expansion Capital and New Investor

MORRIS PLAINS, NJ | Posted on March 27th, 2008

Xtellus, a leading supplier of scalable Wavelength Selective Switches (WSS) for reconfigurable optical networks announced today the addition of $8.3M in growth capital. Led by a new investor, NanoDimension Limited Partnership, this round also includes Xtellus's existing investors. Xtellus will use the funds to further expand its WSS product lines and manufacturing facilities to meet rapidly growing customer demand fueled by the accelerating deployment of Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) systems in optical networks.

"The investment in Xtellus's team and their ROADM technology is an exciting, strategic entry into the fastest growing segment of the resurgent optical networking market," said Aymeric Sallin, NanoDimension AG, Founder & Managing Director. "Xtellus's unique combination of Liquid Crystal and MEMS technologies enables them to deliver the industry's broadest range of WSS to satisfy the needs of all ROADM applications."

"In response to continually rising customer demand this investment will allow us to immediately scale our manufacturing capacity in South Korea for the second time in less than two years," said Dr. Krishna Bala, Xtellus president and CEO. "This investment also allows us to fuel further growth by accelerating the release of new innovative products for both Edge and Core ROADM applications."
