QUEBEC CITY -- EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering Inc. (NASDAQ:EXFO - News; TSX:EXF - News) announced today the introduction of the PPM-350 Passive Optical Network (PON) Power Meter for fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) installation, maintenance and service-activation requirements.

The PPM-350 PON Power Meter, the latest in a suite of EXFO solutions specifically designed for FTTP testing, distinctively measures the optical power of voice, data and video signals simultaneously via a patent-pending approach.

This convenient handheld instrument can determine the power of different signal types, including continuous (e.g., TV signal at 1550 nm) and framed (e.g., ATM or Ethernet at 1490 nm or 1310 nm). Various baud rates are covered, ranging from 155 Mb/s to 2.5 Gb/s, for both synchronous and non-synchronous signals.

The PPM-350 PON Power Meter will be showcased at booth 10602 during SuperComm 2004, extending from June 22-24, at McCormick Place in Chicago.

"True to our reputation, we have shown that EXFO is the expert truly reaching out to customers through an innovative solution that stresses ease of use without sacrificing accuracy and productivity," said Etienne Gagnon, EXFO's Vice-President of Physical-Layer Product Management. "Based on user-selected thresholds, three light-emitting diodes (LEDs) provide straightforward pass-fail, color-coded information about the corresponding PON signals with respective power values appearing on a screen."
