Lightera Networks

Incubated in InterWest's office, Lightera's core technology was an ultra-broadband SONET switching product that addressed the transport switching requirements of public networks employing Wave Division Multiplexing (WDM) equipment. The company was acquired by Ciena in March 1999, and quickly became a source of significant revenue for clients.
