Company Details

Update

CoreOptics is the leading providers of 10G and 40G Distortion Tolerant Transponder Modules and IC solutions for Metro, Regional and Long Haul optical and data networking markets.

With a belief that optical communications networks must become open systems that economically transmit information regardless of data rate or fiber types, CoreOptics provides the only field-proven MLSE-based equalization solutions on the market today. This innovative technology helps Tier 1 systems vendors and carriers deploy the next generation of high-performance networks using their existing fiber infrastructure.

CoreOptics' 10G and 40G Distortion Tolerant Transponder Modules eliminate the need for Optical Compensators and the respective Second Stage Amplifiers, allowing customers to reduce their first-in deployment cost by up to 30%.
