MRV Signs School District

Chatsworth-based MRV Communications, a developer of optical networking equipment, said Wednesday that the firm's products have been chosen by a school district in Texas. According to MRV, the firm's OptiSwitch equipment has been chosen by the Mesquite Independent School District, as part of an effort to migrate away from expensive leased fiber-optic network services. Financial impact of the deal was not disclosed. The equipment will be used as part of a fiber network linking the school district's 53 facilities.
