Molex expands fiber-optic range through managing fellow Koch subsidiary Oplink

High-speed fiber-optic interconnect firm Molex Inc of Lisle, IL, USA has expanded its fiber-optic technology platform following the acquisition in late December of Oplink Communications Inc of Fremont, CA, USA by Molex's parent firm Koch Industries Inc of Wichita, KS, USA. Molex will now manage Oplink, a provider of optical communication components, intelligent modules and subsystems.

"Oplink's capabilities, expertise and proven technologies, combined with our optical product portfolio and global engineering and manufacturing platform, will put Molex in a unique position to deliver complete fiber-optic solutions to our customers worldwide," reckons Doug Busch, VP & general manager of the Molex optical solutions group. 

Acquired by Koch in Autumn 2013, Molex supplies fiber-optic interconnect systems, including connectors and adapters, optoelectronics, optical assemblies, backplanes, optical circuitry and integrated systems for telecoms, datacom, medical, military/aerospace and other industries. The firm reckons that Oplink's record in supplying passive optical products, OMS (optical manufacturing solutions) and active optoelectronics adds breadth and depth to its portfolio of optical connectivity products.

Oplink specializes in creating solutions using optical transport and transmission technologies for wireline, wireless telecom and datacom infrastructure markets and data-center applications, as well as adjacent the sectors of CATV, government/military and optical sensing. As bandwidth-intensive applications continue to drive upgrades and expansion across networks, Oplink addresses DWDM/CWDM bandwidth creation, bandwidth management, optical amplification, switching and routing, wavelength conditioning, monitoring and protection, connectivity and system-level integration of active optoelectronics and passive optical components. These optical solutions are fully supported by vertically integrated design and manufacturing services, says the firm.

"As our customers confront increasingly complex challenges, Molex is committed to creating more customer value by offering integrated solutions that leverage a broad range of high-quality optical products and technologies," says Busch.
