Oclaro receives Fujitsu’s Distinguished Partner Award

Optical component, module and subsystem maker Oclaro Inc of San Jose, CA, USA has received the Distinguished Partner Award from Japanese optical and wireless networking solutions provider Fujitsu Ltd in recognition of its contribution to the development and production of optical gain blocks (incorporating Oclaro’s pump lasers) for Fujitsu Network Communications Inc of Richardson, TX, USA.

“It was important to Fujitsu to partner with a supplier that could deliver the industry-leading optical solution that we require for our customers,” says says T. Touge, president of Fujitsu Ltd’s Network Product business unit. “Oclaro was able to collaborate effectively with our team to deliver products that met those requirements in the time frame we needed.”

Oclaro's president & CEO Alain Couder attributes the firm’s ability to meet Fujitsu’s price performance and schedule requirements to its component portfolio and design capabilities.

The award was presented on 26 January at the Fujitsu Suppliers’ Reception 2010.
