GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- NANOPTICS, INC. today announced the formation of a joint venture with strategic partner SAMYANG CORP. The new company, Digital Optronics Corporation, will further develop Nanoptics' new method for mass production of Graded Index Plastic Optical fiber (GRIN POF) for use in Digital Communications. GRIN POF is a high bandwidth digital communication medium for distances up to100 meters (330 feet). It will compete in two primary markets namely Residential Networking and Optical Backplanes within the Internet infrastructure.GRIN POF is the ideal medium for these applications as it is inexpensive, unaffected by electromagnetic interference, is very secure, stable at high temperatures, extremely resilient, easy to install with minimal training and is able to transmit data at speeds of up to 2 Gigabits per second. Truly the fiberoptic medium of the future for these applications, the project has been appropriately named "Firebase", because of its blazing speed and potential universal use as a basic networking medium. Firebase GRIN POF compares well with existing primary media, i.e. Glass Optical fiber (GOF) and twisted copper wire. Firebase is substantially less expensive to manufacture and install than both copper wire and GOF, is faster than copper and significantly easier to handle and connect than GOF. Nanoptics Inc.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
