Connector signs ‘cheaper than Cisco’ fibre firm

02 Jul 2010

Connector Systems will distribute Aspen Optics fibre connectivity products and Geebic-branded optical transceivers in New Zealand.

Mark Dasent, General Manager for the Networking & Wireless group at Connector Systems, said, "They have a proven and reliable product that provides exceptional value for customers at a time when budgets are shrinking and organisations are asked to do more for less.”

It’s claimed that the range of optical modules can provide savings of 30% – 90% compared to similar devices from the likes of Cisco, HP, Juniper and Nortel.

Aspen Optics product line includes MetroBlazer switches, concentrator and media converters, Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre channel and 10Gbit Geebic branded optical transceivers.

Connector Systems recently signed a distribution deal with SmartOptics and Sanyo Security for New Zealand.
