The patents encompass a range of groundbreaking solutions, including optoelectronic connection systems, enhanced connectors, and VSFF (Very Small Form Factor) connectivity advancements. These innovations are poised to improve efficiency, flexibility, and reliability in optical networks.

Among the newly granted patents are:

1. Optoelectronic Connection System for ELSFP (External Laser Source Form Factor Pluggable): This system enables seamless ‘laser source’ detachability and includes host and module connectivity that ensures the optical connection is made before the electrical connection. This design allows maintenance without accessing internal switch components.

2. Detachable fiber-optic connector for photonic integrated circuits: This system includes an optical connector and a foundation with matching alignment features, ensuring precise, removable coupling. Longitudinal grooves and cylindrical protrusions provide accurate alignment, enhancing performance.

3. VSFF (Very Small Form Factor) Connectivity: SENKO further expands their already industry-leading VSFF patent portfolio with patents covering adapter hook mechanisms, push-pull release mechanisms, and a shutter mechanism for SN and SN-MT adapters.

4. IP Series Enhancement: Various patents have been granted that enhance the reliability and performance of harsh environment connectivity, such as improved ferrule protection and cable retention.
