Time:2024-04-14 From:admin Hits: 237

ICC News From March 26 to 28, the 49th Optical Networking and Communication Conference & Exhibition (OFC 2024) successfully concluded in San Diego, USA. Leading the overall solution for optical components and advanced optical packaging manufacturing services, Suzhou TFC Communication Co., Ltd. (TFC Communication) showcased application products for artificial intelligence and data centers at 800G optical modules at the event, such as Mux TOSA, Demux POSA, Lensed FAU, and MT-FA high-speed optical engine product series and component solutions.


Following Industry Trends, Impressive Appearance at the OFC Industry Event

At the OFC exhibition, Ms. Ouyang, the General Manager of TFC Communication, gladly accepted an interview from Infostone Communication Network((A authoritative optical communication media in china). At this year's OFC exhibition, 800G/1.6T optical modules, single-wave 200G optical chips, LPO, silicon photonics & CPO, and thin film lithium niobate and other optical communication technologies became the focus of attention. With the rapid advancement of technology, 800G and even higher-speed optical modules are gradually becoming mainstream, all of which require the support of high-speed optical components. At the same time, as devices move towards more miniaturization, this also poses higher requirements on the manufacturing process. TFC Communication will continue to closely follow industry trends, continuously enhance research and development capabilities, and provide customers with higher-quality products and services.


Thailand Factory to Commence Production, Supporting Global Business Layout

In order to meet the needs of overseas customers, TFC Communication actively established overseas production and manufacturing bases. Ms. Ouyang introduced that the biggest change for TFC Communication in 2024 is that the company's Thailand factory is about to complete construction and commence production. The first factory building is scheduled for delivery at the end of April, with the second factory building planned for delivery in October. It is understood that the Thailand factory will cover an area of 40,000 square meters, focusing on the production of passive optical components and subcontracted products for optical engines.

 With the gradual completion of the Thailand factory, TFC Communication will form a networked three-dimensional layout with dual headquarters in Suzhou and Singapore, multiple research and development centers in places like Suzhou, Shenzhen, Japan, as well as large-scale production bases in Jiangxi and Thailand to quickly and deeply respond to customer's customized development and production delivery requirements, helping TFC Communication to become a globally competitive optical device enterprise.


Vertical Integration, Innovative Research and Development, Providing Customers with One-Stop Optical Device Solutions

In terms of product technology, facing the surge in AI computing power and the urgent demand for high throughput and high bandwidth in data centers, the performance requirements of products continue to increase. Future products will develop towards high integration, low power consumption, and high reliability. Following the trend changes in optical communication technology, since going public in 2015, TFC Communication has expanded its product and technology offerings to meet the different solution needs of customers through three rounds of financing and three acquisitions, including key technologies such as AWG technology, LENS lens technology and coating, wavelength division multiplexing, and TFF micro-optical components, which have addressed customer requirements and pain points. Over the past eighteen years, the company has accumulated a number of industry-leading process technologies in fields such as precision ceramics, engineering plastics, composite metals, and optical glass, to provide customers with a variety of vertically integrated one-stop optical device solutions.


Ms. Ouyang stated that TFC Communication has vertically integrated 16 optical device product lines, dedicated to providing customers with a variety of demand solutions from data centers and AI applications to automotive radar, achieving around 10% of research and development investment for five consecutive years, and fully meeting customer needs with a flexible research and development system. TFC Communication's multiple research and development centers can balance efficient division of labor and mutual coordination, for example, the research center in Japan has nearly 40 years of optical design and research history, with a high industry reputation in high-precision plastic lenses (LENS), while the Aurora Optoelectronics team positioned as the research center in Shenzhen focuses on coating and glass cold processing optical component product development, sharing the Thailand factory and Jiangxi production base to achieve low-cost manufacturing with rapid delivery. 

Seizing Opportunities, Adhering to the Non-proprietary Brand Positioning, Serving Global Customers

In 2024, with the support of AI computing power, data centers, and other application markets, the global optical communication industry witnessed a rapid growth in the high-speed optical module market due to the massive construction of computing power and network infrastructure, driving the continuous rise in demand for complementary high-speed optical engine components. In such an environment filled with opportunities and challenges, Infostone firmly believes that enterprises capable of providing stable, fast, and flexible research and development and delivery services are more likely to seize the initiative in optical communication and emerge as industry leaders.


TFC Communication has been deeply involved in the industry for eighteen years, continuously expanding its business scope and building a series of diversified technology platforms and product solutions aimed at meeting the differentiated needs of global customers. Based on this foundation, the company has actively expanded its optical component OEM services and adhered to its positioning of not building its own brand, always putting customers at the center, listening to their voices, striving to become the preferred supply partner for global mainstream customers, and continuously creating new value for customers, jointly creating a better future!
