Quebec City -- EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering Inc. has received a US $1.6 million order from a prominent Tier 1 network service provider (NSP) for predominantly protocol-layer test equipment.
The NSP purchased 2.5 Gb/s and 10 Gb/s SONET/SDH testers as well as optical time domain reflectometers (OTDRs), which are contained inside EXFO's best-of-class FTB-400 field-testing platform, and optical loss test sets to ensure the integrity of its high-speed optical networks.
During the past year, EXFO became the first fiber-optic test and measurement vendor to fully integrate protocol-, optical- and physical-layer testing capabilities inside a single platform.
Its SONET/SDH test modules are targeted for use in metro and access networks because they can handle transmission rates from OC-192 (10 Gb/s) down to DS0 (64 kb/s) in North America and STM-64 (10 Gb/s) down to E0 (64 kb/s) in Europe and abroad. The FTB-400 platform supports a wide range of protocols, such as SONET, SDH, T-Carrier, PDH, 10/100 Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet, through easily exchangeable test modules.
EXFO is a leading designer and manufacturer of fiber-optic test, measurement, monitoring and automation solutions for the global telecommunications industry. EXFO markets more than 90 product families to 2000 customers in 70 countries around the world. For more information, visit www.exfo.com.
