New vendor announces entry into fiber-to-the-home market

"... as previously announced, the merged Company plans to change its name to Altius Technology Corporation and develop, manufacture and sell fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) and fiber-to-the-office (FTTO) products and systems. Altius will develop the world's lowest cost customer premises equipment for the growing FTTH market, based on Vida's fiber optics systems expertise and ITC's sub-micron system-on-chip (SoC) design expertise and technologies. Initial customers for Altius products are in Asia, Australia and the USA where the company already has pending orders."

Press release

We have not seen any of these companies in the market to date. A quick web search for Altius Technology turned up very little. The predecessor companies have web sites:
I could not find web site for an affiliated company, International Trust & Financial Systems, Inc., mentioned in the press release but I did find a series of problematic SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) filings for the company.
