To maintain a competitive edge, companies that operate in the telecommunications and cable television industries need access to cost-effective and reliable systems and technologies. As fiber optics continue to drive growth in the communication industry, the need for optics solutions also grows. Until JDS Uniphase split into Vivavi Solutions and Lumentum Holdings in 2015, this company was one of the most influential organizations developing, manufacturing and distributing products for the fiber optic communications market.
JDS Uniphase started out as two separate entities — JDS Optics and Uniphase. Founded in 1981 and 1979 respectively, JDS Optics manufactured components for fiber optic networks, while Uniphase created lasers for scanners and chip makers. The companies merged in 1999 and went on to produce a wide range of fiber optic communications equipment, including lasers, multiplexers, modulators, switches, amplifiers, transponders and test equipment.
Today, Vivavi Solutions and Lumentum continue the legacy of the now-defunct JDS Uniphase, manufacturing solutions for use in the fiber, mobile network, radio test, 3D sensing and custom optics sectors.
