NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 31, 2011) - Analysts believe that companies in the Optical Components industry remain well positioned to take advantage of several secular shifts relating to the way in which companies and the general population access the internet. Optical fiber companies have a strong outlook because raw-data consumption continues to skyrocket. As data-usage goes up, networks need fiber optics to increase the speeds of their networks.
