The development of GIGALIGHT benefits from more than 300 small and medium-sized customers around the world, who promote the growth of the company and the progress of employees.
GIGALIGHT’s unwavering mission is to create optical network middleware and subsystems with ultra-high compatibility and new technologies for open optical networks.
To achieve this mission, GIGALIGHT has built a series of technology platforms, including software and hardware design and high-speed signal integrity platform, COB hybrid packaging technology platform, silicon-based optoelectronic chip design and packaging platform, and COM-based computing and management of multi-channel DAC manufacturing platform, as well as a coherent optical communication technology platform with self-developed algorithms, etc. The company has a world-class compatibility testing laboratory in the field of optoelectronics.

GIGALIGHT's Current Goal

Aiming to become a one-stop device integration solution provider in the field of open optical networks, GIGALIGHT has launched many active and passive products to meet the needs of various types of interconnections and interfaces in open optical networks (especially open data centers)—optical transceivers, active optical cables (AOC), direct-attached copper cables (DAC), silicon photonics optical transceivers, liquid-cooling optical transceivers, high-definition video optical modules, coherent optical modules and coherent transmission subsystems, active/passive WDMs, passive optical access devices and high-density cablings, etc.


In recent years, GIGALIGHT has continued to develop silicon photonics technology and silicon-based coherent communication technology, aiming to further promote the optical layer opening and interface compatibility of open optical networks through the application of these new technologies, and has made good progress. (Note: The company is the first contributor member of the OpenZR+ MSA group.)
