Finisar Corp., a global technology leader in fiber optic solutions for high-speed networks, and Technical Communities Inc., a leading service provider for technical organizations that sell to US government agencies, military and prime federal contractors, announced a government services partnership agreement. The agreement authorizes Technical Communities to market Finisar’s Network Tools products including high-speed serial design and test equipment, protocol training and testing services to the government community.

"Through our partnership with Technical Communities, Finisar is now able to provide government and military customers with the same leading-edge products and services currently available to commercial OEM’s," said Rick Kilduff, vice president of sales for Network Tools at Finisar Corp. "Having these products approved by the General Services Administration (GSA) will allow government agencies to easily acquire the test equipment and services needed during deployment and test phases."

"Technical Communities is excited to offer the federal government an array of high-quality technical products from Finisar," said Peter Ostrow, president and CEO of Technical Communities. "Our goal is to continue to optimize the GSA buying and selling experience for organizations such as Finisar."
