"Activity in our first quarter reflected demand from our customers for both our existing and next generation platforms," said Tom Fallon, president and chief executive officer. "Our new 500G PIC-based DTN-X platform, with super-channels and integrated OTN switching, is generating strong interest among potential and existing customers who now have a choice between our DTN and DTN-X. As planned, we are on track to ship the new platform by the end of the June quarter and to begin revenue recognition in the second half of this calendar year.
"We are pleased to have announced our first DTN-X win, with Cable&Wireless Worldwide, a new Tier 1 UK-based customer. In total, we have received DTN-X purchase orders from four customers, including Cable&Wireless and three existing customers. We are very pleased with the early traction with this new product as we believe this is the first step toward our ushering in a new era in network optical infrastructure."
