Santur Ships 100K
FREMONT, Calif. -- Santur Corporation, the leading manufacturer of laser array devices for the global telecommunications industry, today announced it has shipped its 100,000th widely tunable laser. Santur is the highest volume supplier of these devices. Such tunable lasers are used in long-haul and metropolitan optical networks by nearly all telecommunication carriers for data, voice and cable TV traffic. As tunable lasers replaced their fixed wavelength counterparts, Santur has seen very high demand for its product.
Paul Meissner, CEO of Santur, stated “At Santur, we are very pleased with the rapid and widespread adoption of this new enabling technology. We value the partnerships with our customers, and are moving forward with them on the next generation solutions.”
Bardia Pezeshki, Chief Technical Officer and Founder, said “This event is a tremendous milestone for us. By using proven building blocks to get higher functionality, we were able to rapidly move this product family from the laboratory to deployment.”
