Approved Networks, a brand of Legrand

Approved Networks is a proud brand of Legrand in the Data, Power, and Control Division. Forged from three of third-party networking’s leading brands – Approved Networks, Champion ONE, and U.S. Critical – we have provided cost-effective, high-performance optical solutions to a global network of Fortune 500 Enterprise, Data Center, and Service Provider partners for 30 years.

Approved earned our reputation as the industry authority on OEM alternative optical networking connectivity through a commitment to technical engineering, stringent quality standards, extensive testing capabilities, and dedicated customer service and support – before, during, and after deployment.

Over 10,000 customers in more than 40 countries trust Approved Networks’ transceivers, DACs, AOCs, and passive solutions to light their networks. We do this on time and on budget with an unwavering focus on quality and reliability.
