MAYNARD, Mass., Oct. 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Acacia Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACIA), a leading provider of high-speed coherent optical interconnect products, today announced it is sampling a new 100G coherent dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) pluggable solution designed to help service providers, carriers and cable operators meet growing bandwidth demands in edge and access networks. Offered in the QSFP-DD form factor, Acacia’s new 100G coherent DWDM module was designed to provide a scalable traffic aggregation solution, as well as an upgrade path to migrate from existing 10G WDM networks to higher-performing 100G DWDM coherent links for new architectures in access networks, such as cable/fiber deep and 5G wireless X-haul applications.

“As with our recently announced 100G point-to-point solutions, Acacia is working to satisfy the requirements of service provider edge and access applications with coherent solutions designed for this market,” said Anuj Malik, Director of Product Management at Acacia Communications. “The benefits of coherent have been demonstrated in the metro, long-haul and submarine markets and, with these new products, Acacia is looking to deliver the same scalability, operational simplicity and improved total cost of ownership to the edge and access space.”

“The edge of the network is evolving, and we’re bringing new solutions to market designed to provide scale and ease of use for new applications around IoT and edge computing,” said Jörg-Peter Elbers, Senior Vice President of Advanced Technology, ADVA. “As service providers upgrade their access and aggregation

Clean Water Drives Need For Digital Transformation


By Gina Keeler, SAP

Delivering clean water to billions across the globe is no easy feat. According to the United Nations, 700 million people worldwide could be displaced by intense water scarcity by 2030. De Nora is on the front lines of these environmental problems by developing and distributing mission-critical water treatment technologies to fight water scarcity. De Nora also provides solutions enabling a shift from fossil fuels to the hydrogen economy—the use of hydrogen as low carbon energy.

De Nora, founded in 1923, is a pioneer in electrochemical technology and the world’s largest manufacturer of DSA® electrodes for almost every electrochemical process. De Nora continues its leadership by pressing forward with a multi-year digital transformation that began in 2013 when the company implemented SAP ERP with the goal of harmonizing business processes. De Nora experienced significant growth in 2015, driven by a series of acquisitions to consolidate its water treatment technologies business, which then led to the need to consolidate many ERPs onto SAP S/4HANA.

“Our interest and focus on digital transformation centers around adding value for our customers and making water easy for them,” said Mirka Wilderer, CEO, De Nora Water Technologies. “We believe technology is key and allows us to focus on the functionality and optimized performance of our products so that our customers can focus on what matters most: clean water.”

Wilderer believes proactive maintenance makes this ambitious goal possible.

“The digital transformation journey will provide our customers with proactive maintenance and support where our team will always be aware of how our equipment is functioning in the field and can reach out to schedule a service call before there is an issue that can potentially disrupt service,” said Wilderer. “Technology, particularly virtual reality, is a cornerstone in how we educate our customers on our
