Abstract: An optical module is provided with a columnar protrusion over the entire pickup area (EP) for automatic suction by a mounting device at the center of the upper surface of a fiber holding carrier. The protrusion secures a dedicated pickup area (EP1) on a top surface. When an extra length of an optical fiber extending from an optical device is routed and held between a pair of wall portions, the extra length including a tip portion is held in a storage area of the fiber holding carrier by a restoring force caused by being pressed against the wall portions. In this holding state, since the tip portion of the extra length can be disposed along the outer periphery of the protrusion, even in a case where the position where the optical fiber is held is slightly shifted by a shock from outside.
