Brampton, Ontario-based Nortel Networks has announced that it will combine its various optical components businesses to create a global optical components business unit.

The new entity, named High Performance Optical Components Solutions, will bring together approximately 6,000 Nortel employees, located primarily in Ottawa, Research Triangle Park, NC, and both Harlow and Paignton in the UK.

Formerly organized along different lines of business within Nortel, the company says these groups will now focus on a single charter: “redefining the Internet through industry leadership in high performance optical components.”

The unit will combine Nortel’s existing optical components group with other areas, including activities in high-speed modules and integrated circuit design and development. The new business will focus on designing and developing optical components, such as lasers, high-bandwidth receivers and microelectronic components.
