riginal equipment manufacturers, or OEM, customers’ needs for and next generation network equipment. Filter WDMs: The company’s thin film filter based WDMs are used to combine and separate optical signals. The company’s filter-based products allow for higher isolation and narrower wavelength separations than fused fiber technology. Amplifier Filter WDMs: Amplifier filter WDMs utilize thin film filter technology to maintain wavelength separation in demanding applications. Dense wave division multiplexers, or DWDMs, are integrated optical modules that combine, or multiplex, and separate, or demultiplex, multiple optical signals of different wavelengths on a single fiber. The company utilizes proprietary thin film technology in the development and manufacture of its DWDM products. Coarse wavelength division multiplexers, or CWDMs, are integrated optical modules that multiplex or demultiplex multiple optical signals of different wavelengths on a single fiber. The company’s CWDM product separate wavelength into 20 nanometers, or spacing to cover the complete fiber optical communication spectrum from 1270 nm to 1610 nm. The company’s CWDM product covers 4 channel, 8 channel, and 16 channel mux and demux applications, and upgradeability for both 4 channel and 8 channel types. The company also offers optical add-drop modules, or OADMs, for CWDM networks, with the capability of adding or dropping from one to fifteen channels. In addition to the CWDM mux, demux and optical add/drop modules, the company also offers complete rackmount CWDM solutions to customers so they can easily mount its CWDM products directly on their system rack. CCWDMs: Compact coarse wavelength division multiplexers, or CCWDMs, are integrated optical modules that are designed to significantly improve optical performance, while reducing manufacturing costs, in a package less than 1/4 the size of conventional CWDM modules. Add/Drop DWDM Filters: Add/drop DWDM filter products are used to insert or extract specific wavelengths in a DWDM system. The company’s 200 GHz, 100 GHz and 50 GHz add/drop components use high performance filter technology and operate with very little optical power loss in order to provide high channel separation and high stability. Optical Isolators: These devices use polarization rotation to block return signals from the forward optical path. They limit distortions in devices and signals caused by reflected lights in the fiber. Optical Bypass Switches: These devices utilize beam shifting optics or mirror to switch optical signals from one fiber to another in response to a control signal provided electronically. Automatic Variable Optical Attenuators: Automatic variable optical attenuators are designed to control the optical power in a fiber. They are often combined with an active system component to maintain optical power on a network even if the input signal is changing power. Intellectual Property As of December 31, 2013, the company had 68 United States patents issued or assigned to the company and had 15 United States patent applications pending. The company’s 68 U.S. patents expire between April 2014 and June 2031. The company also has 16 foreign patents issued, and 1 foreign patent application pending. Its foreign patents issued will expire between May 2014 and April 2030. Customers The company sells its products to communications equipment manufacturers that incorporate its products into their systems that they in turn sell to network service providers. In certain cases, the company sells its products to other component manufacturers for resale or inclusion in their products. In the period ended December 31, 2013, the company sold its products to approximately 200 customers. Sales and Marketing The company’s direct sales force markets and sells its products primarily in the United States. It also maintains a sales support staff in Taiwan to service customers based in the Asia Pacific region. Research and Development The company’s research and development expenses included $3.7 million, as of December 31, 2013. Competition The company’s principal competitors in the components
