Oclaro, Inc. designs, manufactures, and markets lasers and optical components, modules, and subsystems for the optical communications, industrial, and consumer laser markets worldwide. Product Offerings 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. Its tunable products at the component level include an indium phosphide (InP) tunable laser chip, an integrated tunable laser assembly (iTLA) and a 10 gigabits per second (Gb/s) co-packaged laser modulator tunable compact mach-zender. The company also supplies tunable components into customers’ 40 Gb/s products, and supplies these related components into the 40 Gb/s solutions. The company is in the process of introducing a micro-iTLA with characteristics suitable for 100 Gb/S coherent applications. 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 externally modulate the lasers of discrete transmitter products, including its own laser products. The company offers 10 Gb/s, 40 Gb/s, and 100 Gb/s modulators for coherent applications. Receivers: The company’s portfolio of discrete receivers for metro and long-haul applications include 10 Gb/s XMD PIN and avalanche photodiode (APD) receivers, 40 Gb/s XLMD PIN receivers, 10 Gb/s coplanar receivers in PIN and APD configurations and 20 Gb/s balanced receivers, coherent receivers and receivers based on photonic integration at both 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s data rates. Transceivers: The company’s pluggable transceiver portfolio includes fixed wavelength SFP at data rates less than 10 Gb/s, Xenpak, X2, XFP and SFP+ at 10Gb/s, QSFP at 40Gb/s, CFP and CFP2 at 100Gb/s. Transponder modules: 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. It supplies large form factor 40 Gb/s transponders based on a differential phase shift keying (DPSK) modulation scheme, a DQPSK modulation scheme, and 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s polarization multiplexing quadrature phase-shift keying (PM-QPSK) transponders, also known as a coherent-based transponders. Strategy The company’s strategy includes the following elements: increase the focus of business on core competencies; maintain focus on communications networks; expand position with tier one customers through technology innovation and manufacturing flexibility; capture share in new and emerging Web 2.0 and data center markets; extend optical product differentiation; match global engineering and manufacturing resources with customer demands; and consider the use of strategic investments, acquisitions and divestitures to maintain an optical leadership position. Research and Development The company spent $64.2 million on research and development, as of June 28, 2014. Sales and Marketing The company’s sales and marketing organization includes direct sales force, customer service, marketing communications and product line specific marketing operations in Canada, China, Germany, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, the United Kingdom and the United States. Customers The company’s customers include ADVA Optical Networking; Alcatel-Lucent; Ciena Corporation; Cisco Systems, Inc.; Coriant GmbH; Fujitsu Limited; Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd; Juniper Networks, Inc.; Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson; and ZTE Corporation. Intellectual Property As of June 28, 2014, the company held approximately 1,150 issued patents worldwide, with additional patent applications pending in various jurisdictions. Competition The company’s competitors include Finisar Corporation; JDS Uniphase Corporation; Neophotonics Corporation; Avago Technologies Ltd.; Emcore Corporation; Fujitsu Limited; and Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd. History Oclaro, Inc. was founded in 1988.
