Aims at Satisfying Increasing Demand For Coherent Transmission Modules and Compact Optical Amplifier Applications

HONG KONG — O-Net Technologies (Group) Limited (“O-Net” or the “Group”) (stock code: 877), a leading high-technology enterprise, is pleased to announce the launch of 980nm uncooled pump laser in small form factor TO-Can package (“TO pump”), a high-power laser for optical amplification applications for coherent transmission modules and compact optical fiber amplifier applications. The product will encourage the transition to the next generation of small form factor compact EDFA which can be incorporated inside the CFP2 ACO / DCO modules and has set a new industry standard. With the launch of the new product, O-Net will start the qualification process with various major customers, and mass production of the TO pump is expected to commence in Q1 2018.

As a pioneer in the provision of high-technology products and solutions, O-Net has continued to further expand from its origin as a supplier of optical networking products. In view of the strong demand for coherent transmission products to support rising bandwidth demand for data center interconnect and metro networks, the Group leverages state-of-art design and manufacturing capability of 3SP Technologies (“3SP”) and the TO-Can packaging technology of O-Net to make significant strides in pump laser technology as demonstrated by the development of the TO pump. The TO pump is derived from a 980 nm uncooled pump laser platform for optical amplification which significantly reduces in product size and enables operation in condensed physical environments.

Mr. Austin Na, Chairman and CEO of O-Net, said, “The launch of the TO pump is a testament to our ability to develop the next generation of optical networking products for the data center interconnect market. We expect both passive and active optical networking products will continue to present numerous opportunities, and take the Group’s core optical networking business to new heights. With a strong global R&D and manufacturing presence, we will continue to expand our portfolio of high-growth new products in a bid to enlarge the Group’s market share and create synergies for our businesses as we access high potential data communication networks.”
