The recent boom in high speed wired and wireless communications networks has greatly increased the demand for dense, wideband signal transport as well as expandable solutions to provide highly accurate network synchronization. This boom has been across all markets including the rapid deployment of commercial 5G networks, national investment in more sophisticated Public Safety wireless networks such as FirstNet, highly secure government telecommunications support, lightweight and deployable military systems to support real-time virtual applications and lightweight mm-wave transport for shipboard and aerospace communication and surveillance.

One company making great strides in optical fiber communication for all these markets is California-based Optical Zonu Corporation. For the mobile wireless market, the company provides an efficient RF Over Fiber transport solution that supports the newer efficient, centralized network architectures. Their various GPS over Fiber solutions are the only such solution approved by all the US wireless operators and provide a low-profile network synchronization solution both at the network hub and at the edge. Optical Zonu’s standard and custom transport solutions for Public Safety wireless support all bands from VHF through Wi-Fi. Their Wi-Fi Distributed Antenna System has been deployed at US government agencies and is the only such system that provides robust, MIMO coverage while meeting stringent security requirements. The company offers a wide range of rack-mounted and hardened solutions for both satcom and radar systems that cover all frequencies through mm-wave. “Our products are designed to assist both commercial and niche markets such as defense and aerospace in enhancing the safety and efficiency of their communication and information transfer processes,” says Meir Bartur, CEO of Optical Zonu.

Founded in 2001, all Optical Zonu’s products are backed by its two-decade history and expertise in the telecommunications space.

One of the company’s core missions since its inception is to develop optical fiber and other telecommunications solutions that are not only capable of solving the client’s current challenges but also helps them be prepared for future issues. “In pursuit of keeping this promise, we have developed high-tech modules that are assembled at record speed to build a system that aligns with all the needs of a customer,” adds Farzad Ghadooshahy, CTO at Optical Zonu. Currently, the company has a comprehensive portfolio comprising RF-over-Fiber products, solutions for GPS-related applications such as distributed antenna systems, Satcom, as well as digital products like pluggable transceivers, optical time-domain reflectometers, among others. According to Ghadooshahy, the entirety of Optical Zonu’s portfolio are modular, assembled in-house, and offer clients the highest flexibility and versatility with respect to their needs.

The company has had a string of client success stories since its inception. A prime example of Optical Zonu’s comprehensive solution suite is its collaboration with the US mobile wireless carriers. The company has worked closely with each of the carriers to provide optimum specialty transport solutions that are, nonetheless, crucial to efficient network architectures.

According to Bartur, a point of pride for Optical Zonu is status as a telecommunications leader in the military and government for all of their secure communications needs. With its patented technologies, the company’s gigabit transport enables its customers to detect fiber faults without the need for expensive and bulky test equipment, thereby minimizing network downtime.

Looking ahead, Optical Zonu is continually working toward expanding its footprint in the commercial and defense sectors by developing systems with increased coverage frequencies. “With our newly developed unified platform, we plan to offer our services to a plethora of market sectors through a state-of-the-art solution and the highest frequencies,” states Bartur. While the company has focused on the North American market, customers have deployed its solution worldwide and is in the process of establishing a formal presence in Europe, Asia, and Australia.
