Applied Optoelectronics

Applied Optoelectronics is a provider of fiber‑optic networking products. The Company serves three growing end-markets: Cable Television Broadband (CATV), fiber-to-the-home (FTTH), and internet data centers. Applied Optoelectronics designs and manufactures a range of optical communications products employing our vertical integration strategy from laser chips, components, subassemblies, and modules to complete turn-key equipment. The Company designs, manufactures and integrates its own analog and digital lasers using a proprietary Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) fabrication process, which we believe is unique in our industry. The lasers it manufactures are proven to be reliable over time and highly tolerant of changes in temperature and humidity, making them well-suited to the CATV and FTTH markets where networking equipment is often installed outdoors.
