This statistic highlights Applied Optoelectronics: Revenue by Product Category from 2015 till the latest quarter. The company generates most of its revenues from Datacenter and CATV segments.
Applied Optoelectronics is a company, involved in designing, manufacturing and providing an array of fiber optic network products, and is headquartered in Texas, United States. The company is in operation since 1997. It has its manufacturing, and research and development facilities located in the U.S., Taiwan, and China. Primarily, the company caters to four types of networking end-markets viz., internet data center, cable television, telecommunications, and fiber-to-the-home. The products produced by the company to supply these end-markets are developed using a vertically integrated manufacturing model, i.e., the company undertakes designing and manufacturing optical communications products, which are developed at various levels of integration, from components, subassemblies, and modules to complete turn-key equipment.
Applied Optoelectronics generates revenue through the sale of its products to equipment providers and network operators for the internet data center, Cable TV Broadband (CATV), telecommunication and Fiber to the Home (FTTH) markets.
The internet data center is the highest revenue-generating segment, wherein the company benefits from the increasing use of higher-capacity optical networking technology as a replacement for copper cables, particularly as internet speeds reach 10 Gbps and above, as well as the movement to open internet data center architectures and the increasing use of in-house equipment design among leading internet companies such as Amazon, Facebook, Google, and Microsoft.
The next revenue-generating product segment is Cable TV Broadband (CATV). Under this segment, the company produces lasers, transmitters, and turn-key equipment in order to provide them with CATV equipment vendors.
Applied Optoelectronics’ telecommunication product portfolio includes SFP and SFP+ MSA-compliant pluggable network interface modules with data rates up to 10GB. The company conducts business by the deployment of these new high-speed fiber-optic networks by telecom network operators.
In the Fiber to the Home (FTTH) market, the company benefits from continuing Passive Optical Networks (PONs) deployments and system upgrades among telecommunication service providers. This segment has generated the least amount of revenue throughout the historical period covered under this statistical report. As per the company reports, products that it offers in the FTTH market are relatively new and have not yet gained widespread customer acceptance, which might be the reason behind a comparatively lower revenue across this business segment.
The company also engages in offering photodetector components for fiber optic networks, among its other revenue-generating activities.
