SAN JOSE, Calif., July 21, 2010 — Optical communications and laser products maker Oclaro Inc. announced Wednesday that it has acquired Mintera Corp., a privately held optical transport subsystems solutions provider in Acton, Mass., for an undisclosed amount. 

Oclaro said the acquisition will broaden its portfolio for high-speed telecommunications. The company will offer components and subsystems covering all the major modulation technologies necessary for high-performance 40 Gb/s data transmission in regional, metro, long-haul (LH) and ultralong-haul (ULH) networks.

Dr. Terry F. Unter, Mintera’s president and CEO, has agreed to remain with Oclaro for a transitional period to lead the new 40/100 Gb/s modules and subsystems division. During that time, he and Oclaro President and CEO Alain Couder will explore a longer-term role for Unter on Oclaro’s executive management team, the company said.

GLOSSARY
modulation
In general, changes in one oscillation signal caused by another, such as amplitude or frequency modulation in radio which can be done mechanically or intrinsically with another signal. In optics the term generally is used as a synonym for contrast, particularly when applied to a series of parallel lines and spaces imaged by a lens, and is quantified by the equation: Modulation = (Imax – Imin)/ (Imax + Imin) where Imax and Imin are the maximum and minimum intensity levels of the image.
optical
Pertaining to optics and the phenomena of light.
optical communications
The transmission and reception of information by optical devices and sensors.
