TOKYO -- Yokogawa Electric Corporation and Fujitsu Limited today announced that the two companies have agreed to form a strategic partnership to jointly develop core system technologies and key components, focusing on high-speed optical-electronic device technologies. The technologies developed through this new partnership will be applied to ultra high-speed optical transmission systems.

With ever-increasing demand for broadband access, high-speed optical transmission technology has made dramatic advances and holds great promise for application in the area of computing. In the field of optical transmission, while there are continual improvements in network infrastructure using ongoing cutting-edge technologies, there is a need to accelerate the development of ultra high-speed optical transmission technology to meet the anticipated increase in demand for bandwidth.

Yokogawa and Fujitsu, respective leaders in the application of advanced compound semiconductor device technology and in the development and supply of the latest optical transmission systems, are for this reason entering into a strategic partnership that has as its goal the joint development of core technologies and key components for ultra high-speed optical transmission systems.

The key objectives of the two companies in this strategic partnership are as follows:

Yokogawa and Fujitsu will utilize their respective development resources for the joint development of cutting-edge technologies. By combining Yokogawa's advanced compound semiconductor device technology with Fujitsu's expertise in network systems, the companies aim to achieve a faster transmission network infrastructure.

Yokogawa will be able to develop and manufacture products for Fujitsu's optical transmission systems, which command a high share of the market, and thereby facilitate the rapid growth of Yokogawa's optical transmission business.

Fujitsu expects to be able to utilize technologies and products developed through this partnership to accelerate the market introduction of new ultra high-speed optical transmission systems.

Yokogawa and Fujitsu will work together to offer customers products of superior quality and reliability and also strive to pioneer a range of innovative optical technologies.
