Going strong-going global
The first SFP+ optical products are currently being qualified by customers in Europe, the US and Asia.
EFFECT Photonics secures additional funds to accelerate its growth and completes its Series-B funding. The investment round, led by independent venture capital fund Innovation Industries, secures continued participation from btov partners, Innovatiefonds Brabant BV, Beek Capital and Optiverder BV, and attracts PhotonDelta as a new partner.
“This investment will not only support EFFECT Photonics by accelerating the sales and marketing effort, but will enable further improvement in time-to-market for our range of optical communication products, and in particular those developed for the 5G network.”
Sophie De Maesschalck, CFO EFFECT Photonics
At this next phase of EFFECT Photonics’ hyper-growth, we tap out the Manta chip: the world’s first fully integrated coherent PIC targeted at pluggable coherent transceivers for the edge and metro/access networks. It is set to drive a revolution in cost optimisation for the next generation of coherent networks.
The first SFP+ optical products are currently being qualified by customers in Europe, the US and Asia. Several field trials are under way, and the company is getting close to beginning to ship in volume.
We are now 180 people strong.
