Polariq aquired by Xtera Communications

Polariq Ltd, a UK-based optical fiber company, has been acquired by US-based Xtera Communications, Inc.

Polariq specialises in solutions for polarisation mode dispersion (PMD), which causes random spreading of optical pulses in optical fiber and limits the rate at which data can be transmitted over a fiber.

“PMD and polarization phenomena have been lifelong issues for the optical communications industry,” said Stuart Barnes, founder and chief operating officer of Polariq.

“By applying its technology to polarization multiplexing (PM), Polariq’s unique patented solution enables more channels per fiber, effectively increasing the overall capacity.”

The acquisition will allow Xtera to maximise the capacity of its fiber cable systems.
