finisar corporation (FNSR) Details

Finisar Corporation provides optical subsystems and components for data communication and telecommunication applications in the United States, Malaysia, China, and internationally. Its optical subsystems primarily consist of transmitters, receivers, transceivers, transponders, and active optical cables that provide optical-electrical or optoelectronic interface for interconnecting the electronic equipment used in building communication networks, including the switches, routers, and servers used in wireline networks, as well as the antennas and base stations for wireless networks. The company also offers wavelength selective switches, which are used to switch network traffic from one optical fiber to multiple other fibers without converting the optical signal to an electronic signal. In addition, it provides optical components comprising packaged lasers, receivers, and photo detectors for data communication and telecommunication applications; and passive optical components for telecommunication applications. Finisar Corporation markets its optical products through its direct sales force, as well as through a network of distributors and manufacturers’ representatives to the manufacturers of storage systems, networking equipment, and telecommunication equipment. The company was founded in 1987 and is headquartered in Sunnyvale, California.

finisar corporation (FNSR) Key Developments

Finisar Demonstrates Next-Generation ROADM Technology Offering

Finisar Corporation announced demonstrated several new products for high-speed optical networking applications, including a low profile dual Wavelength Selective Switch and high-resolution Optical Channel Monitor that enable the design of next-generation ROADM linecards. Finisar continues to invest in developing technology to increase link density, performance, and efficiency in telecom networks. Demonstrations will take place at ECOC in Finisar's booth #412 at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes, September 22-24, 2014. Low-Profile Dual WSS and High-Resolution Optical Channel Monitor ROADM Technology Demonstration. Finisar will demonstrate how the combination of Finisar's low profile dual Wavelength Selective Switch and high-resolution Optical Channel Monitor provide the foundation for next-generation ROADM subsystem design. With the flexibility of the WSS coupled with the resolution and accuracy of the Optical Channel Monitor, systems equipment OEMs can create high performance, single slot, route-and-select ROADM linecard designs. The dual WSS is a new addition to the portfolio of Wavelength Selective Switches built on Finisar's Flexgrid and LCoS technology. It offers dynamic deployment of bandwidth at 6.25 GHz channel width and intra-channel attenuation control to enable higher performance. The dual Wavelength Selective Switch is available in three low profile configurations 2x1x20, 2x1x9 or 2x8x12 to support ROADM linecard and colorless, directionless add/drop applications. The high resolution Optical Channel Monitor provides a quantum shift in performance, featuring power accuracy to 0.5 dB when monitoring signal power at 6.25 GHz resolution. This improvement enables optimization of signal power and center frequency of densely packed super-channel carriers, which not only heightens system performance, but also assures future compatibility as new innovations increase spectral utilization. The live demonstration will connect optical sources through the dual WSS, generating a spectrum with various channel widths, locations, and attenuation profiles. Through the high resolution Optical Channel Monitor, attendees will observe the performance of the dual Wavelength Selective Switch as well as the Optical Channel Monitor ability to resolve intra-channel features and super channel carriers by comparing the Optical Channel Monitor output to an Optical Spectrum Analyzer 'OSA'.

Finisar Corporation Upgrades the WaveShaper 16000 to a 4x16 Port Structure

Finisar Corporation announced the upgrade of the WaveShaper 16000 to a 4x16 port structure. Designed for R&D applications in advanced optical networking, the enhanced WaveShaper 16000 allows switching and filtering of optical signals with arbitrary amplitude and phase between any input and output port combination. Covering the entire C-band of the optical communications window, the WaveShaper 16000 also supports Fourier Processing which allows splitting of an input optical signal between multiple output ports, each with individual filter functions applied. The WaveShaper 16000 can be controlled using Finisar's intuitive WaveManager graphical user interface. Alternatively, Finisar's simple Application Programming Interface, which is available for both Windows and Linux operating systems, allows integration of the WaveShaper in automated research and test environments.

Finisar Corp. Announces Financial Results for the First Quarter Ended July 27, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Second Quarter of 2014

Net income attributable to the company was $14.243 million or $0.14 per diluted share against $28.750 million or $0.28 per diluted share a year ago. Operating income - non-GAAP was $35.404 million against $38.882 million a year ago. Net income attributable to company - non-GAAP was $33.332 million or $0.32 per diluted share against $36.992 million or $0.36 per diluted share a year ago. First fiscal quarter capital expenditures totaled $44.2 million. The company indicated that for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 it currently expects revenues in the range of $305 to $320 million, non-GAAP gross margin of approximately 31% to 32%, non-GAAP operating margin of approximately 8.5% to 9.5%, and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share in the range of approximately $0.23 to $0.27. Capital expenditures are expected to be approximately $45 million in the fiscal second quarter primarily driven by the continuous construction on the exterior shell of the second building of new Wuxi, China factory. Second quarter depreciation is expected to increase approximately $2 million. Non-GAAP taxes are expected to be approximately 6% for the remainder of the fiscal year.
