SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Oplink Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:OPLK), a leading designer and manufacturer of optical components and integrated modules, today announced a new Protection Switch Module (PSM) offering high levels of integration and functionality. Leveraging its passive optical component expertise and expanding Optical Manufacturing Services (OMS), Oplink has cost-efficiently integrated electrical control, intelligence and software capabilities into the PSM. In response to customer demands for additional integration and functionality, Oplink developed this advanced PSM platform to offer subsystem-level performance. With an I2C or RS232 interface, it offers more control and intelligence for rerouting a signal from a primary to a secondary path in the event of a fiber cut. Offered as either a single or multi-channel platform, Oplink's PSM offers cost efficiency and rapid time to market to meet customers' product release schedules. "Oplink has trusted relationships with our customers, and as a result we are frequently asked to manufacture custom designs for them. As their product specifications evolve, our OMS capabilities enable us to offer increased optical performance, flexibility and reduced costs to support their product and profit initiatives," said Weizhong Li, CTO of Oplink. "The Protection Switch Module is the latest platform to join the ranks of our other product evolution successes." Oplink Communications Inc.
