Luna Innovations Announces Another Breakthrough In Measurement Capability For Fiber Optics

ROANOKE, VA.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Luna Innovations Incorporated (NASDAQ: LUNA), a global leader in advanced fiber optic-based technology, has launched the 6415 Lightwave Component Analyzer (6415). The 6415 is the first offering in the company’s next generation of high-performance, high-resolution analyzer products.

The 6415 provides an advanced and cost-effect solution to support measurements for the development and manufacturing of modern high-speed optical components and networks. The product enables the next-generation, high-speed networks from the data center to 5G mobile, both of which require an ultrafast, economical optical network.

“Today’s extreme expansion in communications bandwidth and capacity depends on rapid advancements in fiber optic component and network technology. A high-speed, economical and scalable optical network is the backbone of our communications infrastructure and forms the basis for everything from cloud computing to ultra-fast 5G mobile networking,” Scott Graeff, President and CEO of Luna Innovations, said. “The 6415 gives our customers the power to develop, test and manufacture the next generation optical network components that fuel this global demand for bandwidth.”

As component technology moves more aggressively towards higher speeds with higher levels of integration using semiconductor technology like silicon photonics, minimizing the cost of design cycles and increasing manufacturing throughput become critical. The 6415 helps reduce the design cycle and increase manufacturing throughput. With an unprecedented combination of measurement speed, accuracy, functionality and ease of integration, the 6415 was designed with integrated photonic components production in mind.

With an integrated tunable laser, the 6415 provides fast and accurate information at a fraction of the cost of multi-unit test systems. This high-resolution product delivers comprehensive and high-speed results needed for testing modern passive optical components and provides a versatile tool for manufacturing test and quality control.
