Digital Lightwave Inc., a provider of networking solutions, has acquired the optical network management product line of LightChip Inc., a provider of innovative components and subsystems for optical networks.

Digital Lightwave plans to integrate LightChip's line of remote wavelength management solutions for DWDM systems with its own Network Access Agent (NAA) product line for centralized network testing and monitoring, under the company's recently formed Network Management Systems business unit. The combined product offering is expected to enable network operators to significantly reduce service costs and resolve network problems before they impact customers, while cost-effectively meeting customers' service-level requirements.

Specific products acquired by Digital Lightwave include LightChip's Optical Wavelength Manager (OWM).

"We are pleased to add LightChip's OWM product line to our growing portfolio of networking solutions," said Jim Green, president and CEO for Digital Lightwave. "This highly complementary technology will further extend the capabilities of our core NAA product offering, while enabling us to leverage the cost-of-ownership advantage of our remote test and monitoring solutions with our customers."

As part of the transaction, Digital Lightwave will receive product inventory, patented technology, and certain other LightChip assets. In addition, Digital Lightwave will establish an R&D facility in New Hampshire, and hire about 20 key LightChip engineering, manufacturing, and sales professionals.
