Optical component vendors continue responding to a difficult demand and pricing environment by trying to move further up the supply chain. The latest example: Oclaro (OCLR) is developing more advanced ROADM line cards for optical networking gear, with the goal of better competing against JDS Uniphase and Finisar (FNSR), who have already moved in this direction. Finisar recently bought Red-C, a maker of amplifiers for use in ROADM line cards.
