Silicon photonics company Kotura, Inc. announces 2012 revenue growth of 40% and points to the growing demand for faster limitless access to digital information as a key driver for future growth.
Kotura’s photonic integrated chips address the pressing bandwidth and performance needs of data centres supporting cloud computing, virtualisation and other data-intensive applications.
Kotura also received nods in 2012 from Inc. magazine and Deloitte for the company’s growth between 2007 and 2011 during which time they experienced 848% revenue growth. Having been named to Inc. magazine’s Inc. 500|5000 fastest growing private companies and Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500, Kotura marks 2012 as a major milestone year.
“From a product standpoint, 2012 was a turning point for our company,” said Jean-Louis Malinge, president and chief executive officer (CEO) of Kotura. “We exceeded 60,000 channels shipping per month, more than doubling from the previous year. In addition, we launched our 100 gigabit per second (Gb/s) Optical Engine, which is targeted to data centres and high-performance computing applications. In 2012, we strengthened our technology position with the addition of seven new patents granted and 22 new patents filed, bringing Kotura’s total to 130 filed or granted technology patents.”
Coming off a high growth year, Kotura is focused on the future, which in the short term includes high-volume production of its Optical Engine, a low-power 100 Gb/s chip solution that supports the interconnect fabric for next generation data centres and high-performance computing.
