BALTIMORE – NFOEC – Digital Lightwave®,Inc. (Nasdaq:DIGL - news), a leading provider ofinnovative optical networking products and technology, today announcedAnyBit®, a new powerful enabling test technology for proactive real-timeoptical measurementand analysis. The initial application based on AnyBit -- AnyBit Q-Factor-- is being demonstrated at the NFOEC trade show in Baltimore, Maryland,July 9-11, 2001, atDigital Lightwave's booth no. 1809.AnyBit is designed to provide both dynamic protocol-independent andbit-rate-independent critical statistical measurements (i.e., signalquality, optical eye profiling,network quality trending, and network margin monitoring), in addition totraditional Bit Error Rate Testing (BERT). When integrated in an opticalnetwork, AnyBitQ-Factor can cost-effectively isolate existing problems, providingpredictive data on network degradation and failures prior to theiroccurrence."AnyBit provides service providers and equipment manufacturerscustomizable technology based on Digital Lightwave's advanced hardwareand software capabilities,"said Dr. Glenn Dunlap, senior vice president and general manager of theTechnology and Systems Division. "In addition to supporting traditionalprotocols such asSONET, SDH, ATM, and IP, AnyBit Technology can also be implemented tosupport proprietary and emerging next-generation protocols and analysismethodologies fordevelopment, manufacturing and network management applications. Whenembedded in a network, AnyBit technology can provide significant costsavings by minimizingreliance on skilled field technical personnel and instrumentation."Digital Lightwave Inc.
