Vancouver, B.C. – December 5, 2013 - Valdor Technology International Inc. (“Valdor”) (TSX-V: VTI OTC – VTIFF) is pleased to report that Valdor’s operating subsidiary, Valdor Fiber Optics, Inc., has delivered a Valdor harsh environment fibre optic splitter to a third Canadian telecom company. The splitter will be evaluated by this telecom to determine if it is a solution for their on-going communication challenges.
Mr. Ron Boyce, VP Sales & Marketing/Director, states: “We are extremely pleased that a third Canadian telecom has requested our harsh environment splitter for their evaluation. The feedback I’m getting, from the Canadian telecoms, is that they are focusing on reliability and integrity of their networks; the fact that three Canadian telecoms are looking to Valdor for product reflects very well on Valdor quality control. Valdor’s splitters are expected to meet and exceed this telecom’s technical requirements. We now have one Canadian telecom populating their network with Valdor splitters and two more giving consideration to doing the same. ”
There are ten regional and national telecoms in Canada; ranging from the government owned SaskTel to the national and publically owned Bell Canada. Currently, the telecom fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) market accounts for about 80% of global fibre optic expenditures. In North America FTTH is at about only 5% penetration. For the vendor, the telecom market is a difficult one to penetrate due to its extensive requirements for high quality products and services. It is estimated that the telecom market for passive and active FTTH products, for Canada only, will be in excess of $300 million/year, for at least the next five years. The telecom FTTH market is much larger in the USA.
