JDSU opens broadband network development center in China

To strengthen its research work around advanced test & measurement and optical communications products, in a ceremony on 6 December optoelectronic chip and module maker JDSU of Milpitas, CA, USA officially opened a new broadband network development center in the Shenzhen High-Tech Industrial Park, China.

JDSU established its R&D presence in Shenzhen in 2000. Its move to the new facility represents a commitment of more than RMB20m. The facility includes 6000m2 of floor space and currently employs more than 250 staff, with capacity to expand to over 400. The location is at the heart of the local telecom ecosystem and convenient to the Shenzhen technology workforce.

“The new Shenzhen site demonstrates JDSU’s commitment to China and other high-growth markets in the Asia-Pacific region,” says David Heard, president of JDSU’s Communications Test and Measurement business segment. “The Shenzhen center, together with its other research facilities worldwide, position JDSU close to its customers for effective collaboration that drives the innovation needed for the development and deployment of next-generation broadband networks,” he adds.

Rapidly growing volumes of video and other high-bandwidth traffic require ‘self-aware’ networks that can be managed with greater agility, reliability and higher performance standards, says JDSU. The Shenzhen site designs various optical components and communications test solutions needed by communications network equipment manufacturers and service providers for the development and deployment of self-aware networks. 

The site includes communications test & measurement and optical communications labs equipped with research equipment and network infrastructure. The center’s R&D efforts drive solutions that simplify network management, reduce deployment and operating costs, and improve the quality of communications services.

JDSU’s R&D team in Shenzhen has contributed to the development of test instruments including the SmartClass and T-BERD/MTS 5800, 6000 and 8000. Optical components designed and developed at the site include high-power pump laser module products, modulator products, circuit packs, and transmitter/receiver components.  These and other components developed at the Shenzhen site support a recently introduced portfolio of self-aware optical network solutions to be rolled out by JDSU in second-half 2012.
