MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., October 27, 2010 — Fiber optic cable maker Tratech Fiberoptics of Bend, Ore., will manufacture and distribute Meight optical fiber connectors and associated components under a licensing deal with Mobius Photonics, the companies announced recently.
"Tratech has an established history with Mobius as a fiber assembly supplier and was a contributor in Meight connector development. They continually demonstrate to us a high level of product quality and reliability, which will be important for helping establish the Meight design as a new standard in optical fiber connectors," said Red Byer, Mobius vice president of operations.
