Bookham Technology plc (Nasdaq: BKHM; LSE: BHM) announced a multi-million dollar agreement to supply additional ASOC optical components to Fujitsu Telecommunications Europe Ltd (Fujitsu). Under the terms of the arrangement, Bookham Technology will supply Fujitsu with up to 10,000 wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) bi-directional transceiver modules per month in 2001, for use in Fujitsu's FBX-Access platform.

Bookham Technology's range of integrated WDM transceivers carry bi-directional signals over a single fibre. This design offers significant cost savings over traditional transceivers that require two separate fibres since carriers need to deploy fewer fibres in the access network. The transceivers are designed for use in access equipment such as SONET or SDH point-to-point links or in fibre-to-the-curb (FTTC) deployments.

Fujitsu's successful FBX-Access platform takes fibre closer to the end-user, allowing service providers to offer network operators, such as British Telecom, voice and data services to residential areas and businesses over the last mile of the communications network. Bookham Technology shipped over 12,000 ASOC devices to Fujitsu last year for the FBX-Access product.
