Meeting increasing need for fiber optic cable testing

Telecommunications and network systems are increasingly making the switch to optical fiber. In response, our fiber optics program has been expanded and enhanced to meet growing industry needs. We have significantly increased our capacity and capability to carry out safety and transmission performance testing on multiple fiber-optic products.
