TCS has been a supplier to Optica for several years.

Total Cable Solutions (TCS) announced that it has acquired Optica Technologies’ Fiber Services business line. Effective immediately, Optica will refer all data center fiber-optic cabling, component and services business opportunities directly to TCS.

TCS has been a supplier to Optica for several years, and says the acquisition provides it with access to a new set of enterprise data center partners and customers. The company says the acquisition also accelerates its growing structured cabling business.
