MA, November 06, 2007 -Boston Applied Technologies Incorporated
(BATi), a leading provider of high performance optical devices has
introduced its newest development - the Nanona, an ultra-fast
fiber optical switch with a switching speed less than 50 ns.
Nanona optical switch is based on BATi proprietary OptoCeramicTM
technology; it adds one more device family to its product portfolio
on top of Eclipse, Acrobat and Equinox. The Nanona
switch has no moving parts and organic materials, it has lower optical
insertion loss, much faster speed and more reliable switching compared
to competing optical switching technologies. The switches provide
solutions to managing fiber optic connections, monitoring optical
performance and sharing vital resources for a wide variety of applications
in telecommunication networks, defense/government, medical/bio-technology
and instrumentation industries.
BATi has shipped Nanona switches to its first-tier (Fortune
NANONA optical switch is primarily named after "onona,"
a composite word of ancient Balkan words "on" & "ona"
that has similar meaning as the Chinese composite word "yinyang"
(yin & yang), which in turn has a famous symbol often colored
in black and white. The optical switch's two optical states, dark
and bright, were first related to the symbol of yinyang, and later
the word onona. It was then further revised to NANONA to include the
new switch's feature of fast switching speed in NANO seconds.
Applied Technologies, Incorporated (BATi) was formed in 2002 by
the key management and technical team formerly with Corning Applied
Technologies, a subsidiary of Corning Incorporated. With many years'
development effort and a group of industry pioneers, BATi has established
a unique leading position in designing, manufacturing and marketing
