Mouser Electronics has announced it has entered into a global distribution agreement and partnership with Oplink Communications, a Molex company and a leading provider of optical communication components, intelligent modules, and subsystems.
Oplink’s product line, now available from Mouser Electronics, adds advanced solutions covering fused couplers and splitters, optical isolators and hybrid components, Gigabit Ethernet and 10Gigabit Ethernet Transceiver solutions.
Oplink offers network designers fused couplers and splitters for use in fibre-optic networks. The company offers a broad array of single- and multimode solutions, including its supervisory channel wavelength division multiplexers (WDM) — an integrated component that separates the network supervisory channel from the signal channels for use in monitoring network performance.
Oplink also has a complete line of optical isolators and hybrid amp components available in various fibre lengths and configurations. The product family features excellent performance and compact size – ideal for optical component solutions for erbium-doped fibre amplifier (EDFA) applications.
Oplink’s small form-factor pluggable Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) transceivers (SFP) and 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) Transceivers (SFP+) are hot-pluggable optical transceivers that are designed for telecom, datacom and mobile backhaul applications. The transceivers provide transmission of GbE and 10GbE with link ranges several hundred meters on multimode fibre, and up to 80 kilometers on single mode fibre.
“Having Mouser Electronics’ expertise as a global distributor positions Oplink to better support our customers and grow our worldwide distribution network,” said Peter Lee, president, Oplink. “With the combination of Mouser's excellent supply chain and logistics support, we can continue to drive new growth opportunities and expand our presence.”
“We're excited to offer our customers Oplink’s world-class optical communication components,” said Jeff Newell, senior vice president of products for Mouser Electronics. “These products align with our existing line card and customer base, and we look forward to a successful long-term relationship.”
