Sorry I had the wrong Robert, this was Robert Gordon, asking about FIBR and I thought it was you. It was located on Wall Street Strategies News, asking about the delisting of FIBR. If I find out anything through them I will pass it on here
I just received an email from Phil Mathes,Osicom Sales Manager. I wrote him about concerning the NASA tests, his response: "They are pleased that the unit we delivered performs as we indicated and that the unit when tested with their specific format signals performed flawlessly". "We have identified this as a long term program where DWDM is only one potential element in a number of possible sollutions"..."I do know that placing our unit at Kennedy Space Center has enhanced our position with several other potential GigaMux customers and have been told similar findings from other parts of our sales orginization".
