Austin, TX, USA—December 4, 2013 — Firecomms is pleased to announce that U.S. plastic optical fiber (POF) distributor FiberFin has added the company’s line of LC and RedLink® POF transceivers and cable assemblies to its product portfolio, enabling customers to quickly and easily order sampling, prototyping and production launch quantities of Firecomms OptoLock, LC and RedLink transceivers and cable assemblies.
