Legrand partners with Integra Optics for optical transceivers

Legrand and Integra Optics have entered a partnership that will enable Legrand to offer optical modules as well as direct attach cables under the “Legrand powered by Integra” name. Products will be available through Legrand’s national and regional IT and datacom distributors and resellers.

CEO and CTO David Prescott and President Jim Pascarell said Integra Optics is stressing reliability in its products to save customers the costs of network downtime. The company has created a “Cost of Failure Calculator” to enable network operators to quantify the economic benefits of using highly reliable optical modules versus commodity-type alternative.
