FITEL® Optical Components

OFS is proud to be working in association with its parent company, Furukawa Electric, to supply FITEL components to the North America market. 

Passive Components

The rapid growth of WDM systems has attracted a great deal of attention.  Optical passive devices play a critical role in these systems. Furukawa Electric, through its United States subsidiary, OFS supplies a full suite of passive optical devices based on its proven technology in optical fiber and PLC (Planar Lightwave Circuit) design and manufacture.  We offer optical splitters (fused fiber & PLC types), Athermal-AWGs (Arrayed Waveguide Grating), as well as a variety of additional products.  Contact us for more information.

Active Components

Furukawa Electric is one of the leading suppliers of pump lasers (1480 nm & 980 nm) and signal source lasers (DFB laser, Full band tunable laser). By utilizing its proven capabilities in design, manufacturing, and technical services for semiconductor laser components, Furukawa can meet the exacting demands of telecom systems.


Optical signals travelling long distances needs to be amplified at various points in the transmission path.  Optical amplifiers are key devices that support high performance, long-haul transmission systems.  OFS offers Furukawa Electric EDFA (Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifiers), and Raman amplifiers.  These are designed and manufactured based on Furukawa's extensive capabilities in optical & electrical design and strength in key active & passive components.

Fiber and Visible Lasers

Furukawa Electric offers visible lasers in a variety of colors (405 nm - 665 nm) and a compact fiber laser module for applications in markets like bioscience and imaging.  A North America OFS Sales Engineer can assist you in selecting the right laser for your application.
