Oclaro, Inc. provides optical components, modules and subsystems for the core optical transport, service provider, enterprise and data center markets. The company provides differentiated solutions for optical networks and high-speed interconnects driving the next wave of streaming video, cloud computing, application virtualization and other bandwidth-intensive and high-speed applications. Product Offerings Client Side Transceivers: The company’s pluggable transceiver portfolio includes fixed wavelength SFP at data rates less than 10 Gb/s, X2, XFP and SFP+ at 10 Gb/s, CFP at 40 Gb/s, and CFP, CFP2, CFP4 and QSFP28 at 100 Gb/s. These package form factors support different link distances based on different optical connectors and media types, in both industry standard and proprietary optical specifications. These link distances typically go from 100 meters to 100 kilometers, depending on the laser and receiver technology utilized. Line Side Transceivers: The company’s internal device and sub-assembly technology enables its customers to provide coherent pluggable 100 Gb/s and 200 Gb/s solutions for metro and long haul networks. Tunable Laser Transmitters: The company’s tunable laser products include discrete lasers and co-packaged laser modulators to optimize performance and reduce the size of the product. The company’s tunable products at the component level include a tunable optical sub assembly and a 10 Gb/s co-packaged tunable laser mach-zender modulator. They also include an integrated tunable laser assembly and a 100 Gb/s or 200 Gb/s tunable laser assembly plus modulator. Lithium Niobate Modulators: The company’s lithium niobate external modulators are optical devices that manipulate the phase or the amplitude of an optical signal. Their primary function is to transfer information on an optical carrier by modulating the light. These devices modulate the lasers of discrete transmitter products, including its own standalone laser products. Transponder Modules: The company’s transponder modules provide both transmitter and receiver functions. A transponder includes electrical circuitry to control the laser diode and modulation function of the transmitter, as well as the receiver electronics. The company supplies a small form factor tunable transponder at 10 Gb/s. Discrete Lasers and Receivers: The company’s portfolio of discrete receivers for metro and long-haul applications includes 10 Gb/s XMD PIN and avalanche photodiode (APD) receivers, 10 Gb/s coplanar receivers in PIN and APD configurations and 20 Gb/s balanced receivers. The company also supplies distributed feedback laser die at 10 Gb/s and 25 Gb/s. Sales and Marketing The company’s sales and marketing organization includes direct sales force, customer service, marketing communications and product line specific marketing employees located in Canada, China, Germany, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, the United Kingdom and the United States. In addition to its direct sales and marketing organization, the company sells and markets its products through international sales representatives and resellers that extend its commercial reach to smaller geographic locations and customers. The company offers support services in connection with the sale and purchase of certain products, primarily consisting of customer service and technical support.
