Renaissance signs exclusive deal with Aspen Optics

Renaissance has been appointed as the exclusive distributor for Hong Kong-based Aspen Optics fibre connectivity products and Geebic branded optical transceivers.

Networking and Security division brand manager Kevin Swainson says Renaissance is very pleased to be working with Aspen Optics.“The Aspen Optics range provides exceptional value for customers at a time when budgets are shrinking and organisations are asked to do more for less.”

Aspen Optics’ managing director David Whitney says the company was searching for a partner who could manager the growth of their Geebic optical transceivers and MetroBlazer converter business. The company claims its range of optical modules provides savings of between 30 and 80 percent compared to similar devices in the market from vendors such as Cisco.

Catering to the needs of telecom carriers, network system integrators and resellers, Aspen Optics product line includes MetroBlazer switches, concentrator and media converters, SFP transceiver and Geebic branded optical transceivers.

Aspen Optics’ also claims the optical transceivers allow companies to save the cost of laying additional fibre with utilisation of the existing fibre network is what optical transceivers can help to enable.

The company has been operating for seven years and has an in-house testing facility in Hong Kong.
