Improving Fiber Optic Networks
One of the key components to Alloptic hardware is the use of PON (Passive Optical Networking). Pennnet.com explains the value of PON technology: â€œPassive optical networks offer several advantages compared to active optical/electrical (O/E) systems such as low cost, high reliability, and the absence of maintenance requirements at intermediate network points.â€ In December 2007, Alloptic was able to gather $24 million in investments from its two primary contributors, Arcapita Ventures and Ritchie Capital Management. The global demand for improved and expanded optic networking is increasing, and is expected to continue to do so as networks and connectivity become key components to many business operations. Alloptic is considered by many to be a global leader in its field. In 2008, the market for fiber optic connectors is estimated at $1.64 billion, and will be expanded to $2.5 billion by 2012.
Allopticâ€™s products and services have the most impact on the technology field due to their innovative nature and improvements to existing technologies. The political, environmental, or social implications of their solutions are relatively minimal in comparison. Alloptic owns patents for concepts such as â€˜Multiple wavelength TDMA optical networksâ€™ which contribute to its improvement of currently existing optical network technology.
