Trusted Leader in Storage Networking Optics for Over 20 Years
Finisar was a pioneer of modern-day storage networking. We were the first optics company to drive VCSEL-based products into the original Fibre Channel standard in 1994. Since then, Fibre Channel has become the trusted networking protocol for mission critical data. Today, it is the most widely used interface for most enterprise storage applications. As the largest supplier of Fibre Channel modules in the world, Finisar modules are used in the majority of Fibre Channel Switches, Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) and Storage systems.
Guaranteed performance, interoperability, backwards compatibility and reliability are the defining features of Finisar optical modules. Our modules span six generations of Fibre Channel rates, including 1x/2x/4x/8x/16x and 32x Fibre Channel, and include support for Short Wave optics for Multimode Fiber Applications, Long Wave for Single Mode Fiber or FICON applications, and WDM optics for transporting native Fibre Channel between data centers. We also offer an extensive suite of Ethernet modules for Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), Network-Attached Storage (NAS), and iSCSi applications.
