“We used to buy optics from an OEM (Cisco) and two or three third-party vendors. Integra tested better. We were impressed with quality and product compatibility and programmability.”

“Integra offered us a discount and delivery in a week versus four weeks from the other suppliers.”

“We were a new company ourselves and were only buying from the OEM. We called around and got recommendations. Integra’s prices were better and when we tested them in the field, they were able to customize as we requested.”

Knowing the CEO

David J. Prescott
Integra Optics founder and CEO, David Prescott, is a successful entrepreneur whose career in network technology spans over two decades. Following his nine-year service in the U.S. Navy as a nuclear engineer, Prescott worked as a network engineer at various telecommunications companies. During this time, he acquired vast amounts of knowledge about the fiber optics industry, and learned the ins and outs of managing a profitable business. With this knowledge, Prescott was able to identify opportunities to bring better value and more consistent products to the fiber optics industry, and thus, Prescott left his job and founded Integra Optics in 2007.
