  • "I was in a tough position and NTI got me an evaluation solution out the door immediately. Their UNIMUX-USBV-16HDU and USB-C5-LC solution was used to replace a cluster of other products that didn't work. The customer service was exceptional, and their products worked where several others failed. NTI rocks!"
