Included in the purchase are several patents and trademarks for the Byte Brothers products and technology for an advanced line of test equipment for cable and devices.
The acquisition will position both Triplett and Byte Brothers products groups to provide a more complete line of test equipment and tools. The continued development of the Byte Brothers cable testing technology will also allow both Triplett and Byte Brothers products to expand into new markets and territories.
