The Company

Optix Communications, Inc. (OptixCom), founded in 2001, was the pioneer of compact and high density parallel optical transceivers (4-channel 10 Gb/s and 12-channel 40 Gb/s) for short reach data storage applications, and an early contributor of the XFP MSA. Following the evolution and standardization of optical transceiver technology in the industries, we continue to expand the product portfolio in the last 16 years. OptixCom currently offers a comprehensive product line of various optical transceivers for optical communication and networking markets.

Optixcom is a privately owned enterprise and has been profitable for over a decade. The company is based in the United States and serves the customers globally. In 2016, we opened a new sales office in Germany to expand and serve the customers in the growing European markets. Currently we sell products direct to the customers. Please contact us directly in our U.S.A. or Germany offices for your inquiry.

Market Focus

OptixCom's optical transceivers primarily serve the datacom and telecom markets, which demand large bandwidth capacity, low interference, and highly reliable and secure optical links in their networks. The datacom market is driven by the Ethernet, Fiber Channels, and InfiniBand standards for several network applications: datacenter storage networks, local area networks, and computer networks for server farms. The typical telecom markets cover SONET, SDH, and FTTX applications. OptixCom also develops optical transceiver modules for high definition video links with DVI and HDMI standards. OptixCom's offering of the data and video optical transceiver products provides the markets with a complete solution for the rising need of bandwidth driven by the popular use of the Internet.

Optical Transceiver Products

OptixCom offers more than 300 optical transceiver products for a variety of needs. The optical transceiver is designed with high performance ICs, laser optics, and photodiodes. Customers select optical transceivers based on several factors: package form factor, data rate, optical wavelength, transmission distance, optical fiber type, interface connector, power budget, and operating temperature. Standard optical transceivers use two optical fibers for signal transmission and receiving. Bi-Directional (BiDi) optical transceivers use only one single strand of optical fiber (single mode or multimode) for both transmission and receiving. All of OptixCom’s products are RoHS compliant. The following is a summary of the product features offered by the OptixCom’s optical transceivers.
