Lumentum and Cambridge Industries Group have entered into an agreement on a joint venture that will put both companies in the position to compete commercially in the datacom transceiver market.

Lumentum, a developer of photonics products for optical networking and lasers for industrial and consumer markets, and Cambridge Industries Group (CIG), a supplier for the information and communication technology industry, have announced the partnership in which CIG will acquire certain optical transceiver product lines from Lumentum.

CIG will also enter a long-term strategic supply agreement for Lumentum’s photonic chips. The transceiver product lines to be acquired by CIG are developed and manufactured by Lumentum’s subsidiary in Oclaro, Japan.

Walter Jankovic, Lumentum’s senior vice president and general manager of datacom, said the partnership is one that will allow both companies to thrive in the commercial market “created by the highly anticipated growth in high-speed datacom and telecom client-side transceiver volumes driven by datacenter expansion and 5G wireless over the coming years.”

That sentiment was echoed by CIG President and CEO Gerald Wong, who said, “With this acquisition and ongoing partnership with Lumentum for supply of their industry leading photonic chips, together with CIG’s proven quality and volume JDM and ODM capabilities, CIG expands its capabilities with industry-leading optical transceiver products and technology spanning the range of 10G, 25G to 400G serving many longstanding Tier 1 customers.”

Revenue attributable to the products to be sold is approximately $20 million of the $50 million to $55 million of datacom revenues previously included in Lumentum’s guidance for the third fiscal quarter of 2019.
