JDSU acquires Picolight

Share this on social media:

JDSU has completed its acquisition of Picolight. The acquisition strengthens JDSU’s product line of high-growth pluggable optics.

‘Demand for reliable data management and delivery continues to grow, particularly among enterprises,’ said David Gudmundson, president of JDSU’s Optical Communications business segment. ‘With this acquisition, we are able to serve market demand for 8 and 10 Gigabit data networks, and provide a clear path to 100 Gigabits in the future.’

With more than 1 million small form-factor pluggable products shipped, Picolight has been a pioneer in developing the vertical cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL), a key technology used in high-speed and short-to-medium distance optical interconnects.
