Analyst(s): Kimberly K. Hiller, Elspeth M. Parris


Nbase-Xyplex, a division of MRV Communications, is a specialist in fiber connectivity with a range of chassis-based Ethernet switches targeted at the campus and carrier-class enterprises. Although the modules for the switches include connection to UTP, it is in the provision of fiber modules that these switches stand out with facilities for a range of uses and distances up to 110 km. Nbase-Xyplex sees a future where fiber will be available to the desktop and the home and its range of fiber products is designed to provide the facilities to make this possible.
