New Zealand firm partners with Japan's I-Wave.

Southern Photonics, a New Zealand based leading photonics technology company, has announced their newest partnership with I-Wave Corp in Japan.

The new partnership strengthens Southern Photonics’ established reputation in the photonics industry, and working with I-Wave will enable them to provide local channels for sales and support to the Japanese market.

Andy Stevens, COO of Southern Photonics says: “We are really excited to be announcing this new partnership as we understand how important developing relationships in growing markets are in the current climate. I-Wave’s customer base fits perfectly with our product portfolio and will enable us to create a strong presence and provide our products to new customers in the Asian market.”

The equivalent-time based Optical Modulation Analyzer (OMA) IQScope, which is revolutionizing the OMA market with its unique technology, will be among the products that I-Wave will be offering to their customers.

I-Wave is an importer and exporter of ultra high-speed optical transmission and access products in Japan, and is an important partnership for Southern Photonics as it continues to expand out of New Zealand into the international photonics market.

Koichi Shimada, CEO of I-Wave added: “It is an exciting time for us to be able to work with a leading technology company like Southern Photonics in a marketplace where the technology developed by them is new and emergent. Our vast exposure in the Japanese market can ensure Southern Photonics will benefit from this partnership and will most definitely benefit our customers.”
