Utah Scientific and Norwia AS Sign Technology Partnership Agreement

SALT LAKE CITY -- April 4, 2011 -- Utah Scientific today announced a partnership with Norwia AS to develop new products and systems for efficient, reliable, and cost-effective digital signal transport based on the latest advances in component technology. Headquartered in Norway, Norwia is a new company that provides products for fiber transport and distribution of digital media signals.
