Fujitsu Leads in U.S. Optical Patents -- 111 Last Year

Fujitsu was awarded 111 optical technology patents in 2010 by the U.S. Patent Office (USPTO)-- more than double the number received by the closest competitor - marking the sixth consecutive year that Fujitsu led the field in optical innovation. Since 2006, Fujitsu's advances in optical communications have garnered the company nearly three times the number assigned to the next optical developer on the list.

"The world's largest and most forward-thinking organizations look to Fujitsu's optical communications solutions to enable next-generation services with five-nines reliability and security," said Bill Erickson, senior vice president of planning and development, Fujitsu Network Communications. "Our investment in research and development allows customers to implement advanced communications architectures that support profitable new services in a way that leverages their existing infrastructure investments and minimizes ongoing operational expenses. This commitment to optical innovation is one reason Fujitsu is the optical transport market share leader."
