First Ever Multi-Fiber-Tool to Recode, Retune, Power Read and microOTDR

Los Angeles, CA (March 20, 2015)Solid Optics, a global supplier of fiber optic transceiver modules and CWDM/DWDM products with offices in the US and Europe, announced today the release of its new, proprietary Multi-Fiber-Tool.  An exciting new product designed to save time and money for network professionals, this innovative tool enables users to quickly analyze and fix issues related to optical communications, as well as modify optics to keep up with rapidly changing needs.
