-- Low-cost assembly using the commodity TO package, the most widely deployed hermetic package in the fiber-optics industry.

-- Solid-state reliability of a silicon-based design with no moving parts, proven to meet telecom reliability standards by passing a full suite of mechanical and endurance stress tests as well as accelerated aging tests, based on Telcordia GR-468-CORE.

The Active Thin Films technology platform is the basis for Aegis' low-cost channel monitor products, which have gained wide acceptance in DWDM fiber-optic communications networks, fueled by service provider deployments of Re-configurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) systems, multi-haul (or multi-reach) DWDM systems and transparent optical network architectures that support third party (or "alien") wavelengths.
