Lucent Technologies provides broadest small-form connector platform in the market

March 19, 2001

ANAHEIM, CA - Lucent Technologies (NYSE: LU), the inventor of the optical connector, today announced that it recently shipped its 20,000,000th LC small-form factor connector - just one member of Lucent's small-form factor line of products designed to help service providers minimize both equipment size and space requirements. Lucent's small-form factor LC connector features a rugged design made to withstand the wear and tear of daily usage in today's fast-growing networks. Lucent's LC connectors combine a wealth of features and deliver as much as a 50 percent reduction in space requirements, which reduces system costs. The LC is a top performing optical connector and is easy to install.

"Lucent's LC connector is the small-form connector with the greatest acceptance in the market today," said Denise Barnes, vice president of Lucent's Fiber Optic Apparatus and Premises Cable business unit. "Major equipment manufacturers have already adopted the LC in their next-generation equipment, which makes compatibility and standardization much easier. And our entire small-form factor product line is targeted at helping both manufacturers and service providers to shrink their cost of operations and to maximize their profitability as a result. "

Lucent's complete LC optical product line first introduced in 1996, is the largest [small form factor family in the communications business and now comprises a group of 20 products composed of connectors, adapters, attenuators, terminators, high-performance jumpers and pigtails. All of these Lucent products are designed with a focus on enabling service providers to follow an evolutionary path towards highly efficient and cost-effective networks -- or to build "green field" networks - that require a minimum of space. Lucent's small-form factor products are also developed for high performance and endurance and are being installed globally in a wide range of network applications.

Lucent's Optical Fiber Solutions is a world leader in the manufacture of optical fibers, fiber cable, specialty fibers, and fiber optic apparatus. Lucent Technologies' Optical Fiber Solutions business is headquartered in Norcross, Ga., and led the industry in the shift to new application-based fibers with its introduction of TrueWave® Fiber in 1993. Lucent's AllWave® ZWP Fiber was recently named as one of Industry Week magazine's "Technologies of the Year."
