JDS Uniphase (JDSU) is buying GenComm, a Korean maker of wireless infrastructure testing gear, for ann undisclosed sum. JDS, which already has a distribution deal with GenComm that produced $7.5M in FY12 revenue, has been trying to lower its exposure to a weak optical component market by growing its telecom testing business, leading it to compete more with vendors such as Agilent (A) and Ixia (XXIA).
