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 these networks, including the switches, routers, and servers used in wireline networks, as well as the antennas and base stations used in wireless networks. The company supplies optical transceivers and transponders that allow point-to-point communications on a fiber using a single specified wavelength that bundled with multiplexing technologies, can be used to supply multi-terabit per second, bandwidths approximately 100 wavelengths on the same fiber. The company also provides products known as wavelength selective switches (WSS). 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. Strategy The key elements of the company’s strategy include continuing to invest in or acquire critical technologies to further its vertical integration strategy; expanding its broad product line of optical subsystems; leveraging core competencies across multiple, high-growth markets; and strengthening and expanding customer relationships. Products The company’s optical subsystems and components are integrated into its customers’ systems and used for fiber optics-based data communication and telecommunication networks. Its family of optical subsystem products consists of transmitters, receivers, transceivers, transponders, and active optical cables principally based on the Ethernet, Fibre Channel, optical transport network (OTN) and SONET/SDH protocols. 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 enhancements. The company’s high-speed optical subsystems are engineered to deliver value-added functionality and intelligence. Its optical subsystem products typically include a microprocessor with proprietary embedded software that provides customers real-time monitoring of transmitted and received optical power, temperature, drive current, and other link parameters for each port in their systems. 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 gigabit per second (Gbps). For data communication applications that rely on the Ethernet standard, the company provides a range of optical subsystems for transmitting signals at 1 to 100 Gbps using the SFP, SFP+, XFP, X2, QSFP, QSFP28, CXP, CFP, CFP2, CFP4, and proprietary 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, 40,100, and 200 Gbps. The company also offers a line of optical subsystems for telecommunication applications using wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) technologies. Its products include coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM), transceivers in the SFP form factor and dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM), transceivers in the SFP, SFP+, XFP, and CFP form factors. These products include both fixed wavelength transceivers and tunable transceivers that are capable of dynamically tuning across a range of wavelengths in the C- and L-Bands. The company manufactures various active and passive optical components, including vertical cavity surface emitting lasers; Fabry-Perot, lasers; distributed feedback, lasers; tunable lasers; positive intrinsic negative, detectors; high-speed integrated waveguide detectors; Mach Zehnder Modulators; fused fiber couplers; isol
