Public Profile:
In August 2005, Polatis of the UK merged with Continuum Photonics Inc. The new entity is focused on delivering cost-effective solutions for optical layer connectivity. The company developed all of its hardware products on a common technology platform - DirectLight. DirectLight is a proprietary beam-steering methodology, using solid-state mechanics for precision tuning of optics. Polatis develops a broad series of products upon the DirectLight platform including a series of non-blocking, fully transparent switches, agnostic to both bit-rate and protocol.Continuum provides optical networking equipment manufacturers with strategic subsystems that enable higher bandwidth products and associated revenue-generating services at a substantially lower cost. As a first step, Continuum Photonics is developing a radically different, operationally and economically beneficial photonic switch that will solve many of the problems associated with delivering and managing optically-transported bandwidth
