Finisar Corporation provides optical subsystems and components that are used in data communication and telecommunication applications. The company’s optical subsystems consist primarily of transmitters, receivers, transceivers, transponders, and active optical cables that provide the fundamental 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. These products rely on the use of semiconductor lasers and photodetectors in conjunction with integrated circuits (ICs) and novel optoelectronic packaging to provide a means for transmitting and receiving digital signals through fiber optic cable at speeds ranging from approximately 1 gigabit per second (Gbps) to approximately 100 Gbps, through distances of approximately 10 meters to approximately 2,000 kilometers, using a range of network protocols and physical configurations. The company supplies optical transceivers and transponders that allow point-to-point communications on a fiber using a single specified wavelength, which bundled with multiplexing technologies, could be used to supply multi-Gbps bandwidth through various wavelengths on the same fiber. The company also provides products known as wavelength selective switches (WSS). In long-haul and metro networks, each fiber might carry 50 to 100 different high-speed optical channels, each with its own specific optical wavelength. WSS are switches that are used to switch network traffic from one optical fiber to multiple other fibers without first converting the optical signal to an electronic signal. WSS products are sometimes combined with other components and sold as linecards that plug into a system chassis referred to as a reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer (ROADM). The company’s line of optical components consists primarily of packaged lasers and photodetectors for data communication and telecommunication applications and passive optical components used in telecommunication applications. Products The company’s family of optical subsystem products consists of transmitters, receivers, transceivers, transponders, and active optical cables principally based on the Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel, optical transport network (OTN), and synchronous optical networking/synchronous digital hierarchy (SONET/SDH) protocols. A transmitter uses a laser plus direct or indirect modulation to convert electrical signals into optical signals for transmission through fiber optics. Receivers incorporating photo detectors convert incoming optical signals into electrical signals. A transceiver combines both transmitter and receiver functions in a single device. A transponder includes an IC to provide the data serializer-deserializer function that would otherwise reside in the customer’s equipment if a transceiver is used. An active optical cable combines two transceivers and a fiber optic cable that are built into an integrated, connectorized cable assembly that is sold in various cable lengths. The company’s optical subsystem products perform these functions with data integrity and support a range of protocols, transmission speeds, fiber types, wavelengths, transmission distances, physical configurations, and software improvements. For data communication applications that rely on the Fibre Channel standard, the company provides a range of optical subsystems for transmission applications at 1 to 16 Gbps. For data communication applications that rely on the Ethernet standard, it provides a range of optical subsystems for transmitting signals at 1 to 100 Gbps using the SFP, SFP+, XFP, X2, QSFP, CFP, and CFP2 form factors. For OTN and SONET/SDH-based telecommunication applications, the company supplies optical subsystems that are capable of transmitting at 0.155, 0.622, 2.5, 10, 40, and 100 Gbps. The company also offers a line of optical subsystems for telecommunication applications using wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) technologies. Its products include coarse WDM transceivers in the SFP for
