WALTHAM, Mass., Dec. 15 -- Oak Industries Inc. reported that its Lasertron Inc. division has signed a two-year, multi-million dollar contract to serve as the majority supplier of distributed feedback (DFB) lasers for the metropolitan wavelength-division multiplexing transmission system of an unnamed telecommunications equipment provider.
