Trend was known as Ideal Networks until March this year. It is a manufacturer of data cable, network and CCTV testers.
Terahertz makes testers for OTDR, PM/LS, OLTS, PON, DWDM and CWDM.
“Businesses handling fibre optic cables can now depend on us for a wider range of equipment for testing fibre optic cabling,” said Trend CEO Paul Walsh. “TTI has a fantastic team and some extremely talented engineers, so we are excited to work alongside them to expand our range of fibre testing products.”
Following the acquisition, according to Trend, TTI will continue to design and manufacture products in Oriskany, New York.
Existing engineering, sales and production teams will remain, as will CEO Michael Mazzatti who founded the company in 1989.
It will also continue to provide existing Terahertz customers with sales, technical support, repair and calibration services, “in essence, business as usual”, said Trend. “In the future, Trend Networks will provide these services for the new re-branded product portfolio, giving customers support globally, including in local languages.”
The rebranded tester range will be available via the Trend’s international network of distribution partners.
All of Trend’s existing fibre test equipment types will remain available. “However”, said Trend, “over the next several months, Trend Networks will begin progressing a number of new fibre test equipment projects, with TTI headquarters becoming the Trend Networks centre of excellence for fibre-optic research and development.”
“We are looking forward to the next chapter for TTI and joining the Trend Networks family,” said Mazzatti. “We are excited that a renewed sales and marketing effort and international distribution network will bring TTI testers to more users globally.”
