September 16, 2014 – Greenlee says it has extended its ethernet product offering with its acquisition of Guisys Corp. (Campton Hills, Ill.), a manufacturer of Android-based hand-held telecom test solutions. Guisys founders—Mike Petersen and Steve Robbins—have joined the Greenlee Communications engineering team, and will lead ongoing ethernet R&D projects.
“We look forward to the expanded range of products and new capabilities this brings to future products as we expand our presence in the ethernet market,” said Jason Butchko, general manager of Greenlee Communications.
With this acquisition, Greenlee Communications also announces the launch of DataScout 10G, which combines an Android tablet interface with a selection of test interfaces capable of testing everything from 10Gb ethernet, DS3/DS1 legacy transport and TIMS into a single platform.
