Luna Innovations Announces Another Breakthrough in Measurement Capability for Fiber Optics

Sponsored by Businesswire

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

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

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. More
