Lockheed Spins Off Transmitter Startup

From an anonymous source:

    Scuttlebutt on TeraConnect. It's making an integrated array of laser/detector/parallel optical fibers. I saw a prototype of a bidirectional 8-channel version. It will be quickly scaling to 16, 32, and 64 channels. I don't know the exact range, but I believe it is mostly suitable for LAN- or perhaps WAN-type networking. The main customer is Cisco.

    There was a dispute in the selection of a backer. Sanders took bids from a number of backers, culled it down to a few, and then made its final selection. One of the backers that got dropped hired ten of the top technical people on the project away from Sanders to form their own company.
