MIDDLETOWN, R.I. -- Today at the Optical Fiber Communications (OFC) Conference in Anaheim, California, KVH Industries (Nasdaq: KVHI) revealed the preliminary specifications for the company's new 40 gigabit per second photonic fiber optical modulator. This breakthrough all-optical modulator uses KVH's ActiveFiber technology and is the latest in a series of fiber optic product and technological advances brought forth by the Rhode Island-based optical fiber and systems manufacturer. These new products, including a fiber optic high-voltage current sensor, build on the company's more than 20 years of fiber optic research, development, and manufacturing experience.

"We recognized the value fiber optics would have both as components within KVH's satellite communications and navigation products and as standalone products," explained Martin Kits van Heyningen, KVH president and CEO. "With more than two decades of experience and in excess of 70 patents, we have proven our ability to develop and bring to market outstanding, high-quality fiber optic systems for a variety of applications. We are one of the few companies that produces both optical fiber and key fiber components, allowing us to have outstanding quality and performance control over our optical fiber and our fiber optic products."
