Optical Communication Products Inc. (OCP), a manufacturer of fiber-optic subsystems and modules for LANs, MANS, and WANs, has acquired the parallel optical module assets and IP of Gore Photonics, an R&D firm of VCSEL parallel optical modules for fiber-optic communication networks and a business unit of W.L. Gore & Associates Inc.

The Gore Photonics 850nm optical module technology is expected to allow OCP to accelerate the introduction of its parallel optical modules, which offer the advantages of high data transfer and low power consumption required to elevate equipment interconnect to the next level.

"We believe that the Gore Photonics 850nm VCSEL parallel optical module technology will allow OCP to provide our customers with an enabling building block for the next generation of optical systems," said Dr. Muoi V. Tran, chairman and CEO of OCP. "This acquisition complements our recent acquisition of the technology of multichannel optical modules based on 1,300nm VCSEL arrays from Cielo Communications."
