Oplink to Launch Mobile Interactive Security and Safety System(September 24, 2012)
FREMONT, Calif., Sept. 24, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oplink Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:OPLK), a leading provider of photonic telecommunications components, intelligent modules and subsystem solutions, today announced the addition of its mobile interactive business division and introduction of its new security and safety system for homes and businesses.
Leveraging its in-house design and integration expertise in conjunction with mobile cloud software development, Oplink is building Smartphone-centric security service applications for the high growth home and business markets. Integrating Smartphones, Tablets, wireless security sensors, IPCAMs and network storage devices, Oplink's patent-pending plug-n-play mobile cloud solutions offer Smartphones' users on-the-go real time protection and monitoring. Oplink's software-centric Smartphone Owner Protection service provides many innovative features that aim to replace the legacy "central station call service" over time. These patent-pending plug-n-play solution-in-a-box systems will come in different packages with different numbers of IPCAMs, wireless sensors, controllers, and storage options. Oplink will also offer a 3G/4G dongle and back-up battery option, to ensure continued service during power or Internet outages.
Oplink intends to sell through its web store initially and co-sale with wireless carriers later for both products and services. Product pre-launch details will be available at http://www.oplink.com/mi.
"We are excited to introduce these software-centric, mass-merchandisable security solutions-in-boxes for home and business," commented Joe Liu, Chairman & CEO of Oplink. "Our mobile cloud offers multiple A/V alerts to unlimited emergency contacts, and supports multiple video viewing at different locations at once. We are pleased to officially announce our entrance into this big and growing market with this initiative, and look forward to capitalizing on this opportunity with our innovative solutions."
