Nistica is a global supplier of agile optical modules that simplify, automate and make affordable the delivery of high bandwidth applications. Nistica offers a comprehensive suite of optical solutions that range from low port-count Wavelength Selective Switches (WSS) that serve the edge of the network, to high port-count twin WSS that address the emerging next-generation route-and-select architectures in the core of the metro and long-haul networks. In addition, line-cards that serve the role of Reconfigurable Optical Add Drop Multiplexers (ROADMs) are designed and developed based on individual customer requirements.
Founded in January 2005 with the vision of automating the edge and metro core of the optical network, Nistica has designed its products for optical system OEM vendors around the world. Over the past two decades, the founders have been instrumental in bringing ROADM technology to market and creating viable solutions for WSS applications.
Nistica has partnered with global technology stalwarts such as Texas Instruments (TI) and NTT Electronics Limited (NEL) to adapt optical switching technologies for the stringent telecommunication requirements. Nistica is now a subsidiary of America Fujikura Ltd., with Fujikura Ltd. in Japan as the parent corporation.

Over the last decade, Nistica products have been deployed in over 50,000 nodes spanning 35 countries.
Nistica takes its corporate symbol from the Bristlecone Pine, reputed to be the most ancient of all living species on earth. This remarkable tree has a stable photosynthetic capacity to survive over millennia of environmental challenges, and thrive in different geological and climatic regions. In the natural realm, it is truly an innovative, adaptable and tenacious species.
The Nistica name comes from the concept of being productively opportunistic, providing timely solutions to customers as needs arise, and focusing on the essentials of getting to market.
