About Us




Gigalight is a global optical interconnection design innovator. Since we entered the optical communications industry in 2006, we have been working on the business model design and products innovation of optical network devices. So far, we have formed 5 major product lines, including optical transceivers, passive optical components, active optical cables, MTP/MPO cabling, smart fiber tools and so on. Gigalight’s business design is based on the needs of different customers. Our core concept is to provide high quality and high reliability solutions and products, and is also very interested to provide customers with low cost and innovative design. Gigalight has been looking forward to the latest trends in the field of optical communications. In recent years, we focus on the development of optical transceivers and active optical cables for the Data Center & Cloud Computing market, while making a deep production of scale. Thanks to the independent research and development of the hybrid optical engine technology platform and a variety of technology combination package technology platform, Gigalight is coping with the challenge of 5G’s rising and the 100G’s scale deploying in the cloud computing. The goal of Gigalight is to become an economical and effective design innovator of commercial technologies in the 100G/200G/400G era.
