Congratulations to Finisar

Shelston IP congratulates its valued client Finisar Australia on being the recipient of an Australian Engineering Excellence Award in the category of Control Systems, Networks, Information Processing and Telecommunications.


The Australian Engineering Excellence Awards are held annually by Engineers Australia to acknowledge the significant contribution engineers make to the community.

Finisar Australia are a subsidiary of Finisar Corporation which develops and manufactures high-speed optical communications components for current and future communications systems. Part of its technology suite is measurement systems for measuring the operational performance of a communications device or system. Finisar won the Australian Engineering Excellence Award for its work in Coherent Optical Measurement Systems (COMS). This is an advanced electro-optic measurement platform that measures the properties of optical communications transmitters, subsystems or systems at unparalleled precision and speed. Finisar’s first product based on the COMS platform, the WaveAnalyzer High-speed Optical Spectrum Analyzer, generated export revenues of $2 million dollars in its first full year of sales. The latest COMS product, the High-Resolution Optical Channel Monitor (HR·OCM) is miniaturised version of the WaveAnalyzer and provides a similar level of performance, but in a package measuring just 40x110x20 mm and consuming just 5 W of power. It is targeted at embedded applications for optical communications network monitoring and control.

Shelston IP is proud to be assisting Finisar in protecting the intellectual property of its award winning technology.
