SHENZEN, China -- O-Net communications Ltd, a leading optical component and module supplier, announces today that its shipping volume of EDFA modules and subsystems has been tripled this year. The strong growth has benefited from R&D strength, track record in quality control coupled with low cost manufacturing, as well as rising demand from the optical networking market.

O-Net has developed a series of optical amplifier platforms that can be customized to meet most of optical amplifier needs. Today O-Net can supply a full range of EDFA modules, including the most sophisticated EDFA subsystems with variable gain, tilt control and mid-stage access empowered by versatile communication interface and advance transient control. O-Net started manufacturing of optical amplifies in 1997, one of the earliest in China. Since then O-Net remains a leading position in China as an EDFA supplier with more than 80% of its sales revenue from overseas market. O-Net is also one of the very few companies that implement vertical integration in its EDFA manufacturing, thus further reduce the cost.

Dr Aihua Yu, Director of R&D, responsible for EDFA modules and Subsystems, says, "Although EDFAs have been deployed in optical communication systems since early 1990's, there is no industry standard so far. Today most of the leading optical network suppliers define their own requirements in terms of optical performance, footprint and communication interface, which are specific to their application environment. In most cases, this requires customized or semi-customized design, which means significant cost in R&D. O-Net, which has both R&D and operation located in Shenzhen China, is well positioned to provide high-quality and cost effective solution to our customers for their optical amplifier needs. We expect that our EDFA shipping volume will enjoy further significant growth in 2006."
