Support services and expertise
We understand the complexities of fibre optics applications. With over 25 years’ experience of application engineering for fibre optical components, module design, and system solutions, we can help you integrate the right technology and develop innovative fibre optic solutions, no matter how complex.
We offer both standard and custom fibre optic solutions, as well as high level support, testing and modifications for a multitude of issues that you may face with integrating fibre optic technologies. These range from validation, failure analysis, debugging and testing as well as fault finding.
From our European, in-house Fibre Optics Technology Centre you can speed up the turnaround of your design application using our specialist test equipment and facilities and recreate environments for specific applications.

Discover our range of technologies
High-performance applications, such as sensing, RFoG, cable television, mobile networks, and satellite transmission and monitoring, that require the transmission of signals to remain in the analogue domain are enabled using laser and receiver components within our portfolio.
Laser diodes are available both packaged in either coaxial or butterfly footprints, allowing deployment into challenging environments without diminishing linearity or optical performance over wide temperature ranges.
Photodiodes complement the line-up allowing our customers to match the performance requirements on the receiver side creating extremely stable and robust links.
Our flexibility in the choice of wavelength, output power, and linearity specifications provide a broad portfolio of components; not only for deployment into traditional applications such as telecom but also for complex solutions including DWDM, CW, and interferometry, where low RIN and narrow linewidths are key. For higher performance analogue solutions, talk to our experts to define your exact requirements. Whether the solution is using single or dual-stage isolators, standard single mode or polarisation maintaining fibres, special packaging, or connectors we will stand up to any challenge.
Many digital applications require specific challenges to be solved at component level where transceivers would not provide enough flexibility or direct access to control certain performance characteristics. For this reason, we can offer you a range of optical components for digital applications; including telecom/datacom systems, CWDM/DWDM modules, and instrumentation.
These LED, laser and photodiode components can be provided as TOSA, ROSA, BOSA components with or without pigtails and connectors.
Alternatively, a range of receptacle packages are available allowing direct connectorisation with standard connectors such as SC, ST, FC, SMA, and LC. Custom connectors and packaging are also available on request.
Integration of WDM components either inside of BOSA or externally, as a module or assembly solution, is possible. Solving your challenges is key, hence the provision of dual, triple, or even quad lasers or photodiodes inside of a single OSA with pigtail is possible. We are able to assist with any challenge and make use of our partner’s expertise and flexibility in design and production from small sample quantities to high-volume manufacturing.
When it comes to developing custom solutions for tomorrow's technologies, we trust our approach to deliver the best possible outcome.
Our engineers will skilfully guide you through each stage of your project, working with you to understand and identify a solution that meets your technical and commercial needs before designing and integrating your solution.
