Calient launches new switch, payment plan

June 3, 2002 — Calient Networks said it has expanded its product line with a new MEMS-based optical switch, according to a news release.

Calient officials said the DiamondWave 128 system offers lower costs than competitors’ switches through high-yield MEMS manufacturing and significant design breakthroughs. The switch, designed for regional and metro core networks, can be deployed at one-fifth the cost of other products, the company said.

The firm also announced it has launched a new pricing structure of its DiamondWave product line. The plan, dubbed “pay-as-you-grow,” allows carriers to build its capacity on an incremental basis.
