Acterna Boasts Milestone

GERMANTOWN, Md. -- Acterna (NASDAQ: ACTR), the world's second-largest provider of products that test and manage communications networks, today announced that it will ship its 5,000th Acterna TestPad SONET tester. The TestPad SONET module (2310) now is the single most deployed handheld optical tester for DS0 to OC-48/48c in the industry. Weighing five pounds, the Acterna TestPad 2310 is the only handheld, single-platform solution on the market that enables providers to provision, install and maintain data, transport and circuit-switched networks at rates up to OC-48.

SONET is quickly migrating from a core transport technology to a common service medium in the access network, and drivers such as DWDM and OC-192c are pushing OC-48 to the edge of the network. With the continued evolution of the all-optical network, a provider's ability to test high-speed SONET services in a mobile, easy-to use instrument is imperative. The TestPad 2310 is the preferred SONET test solution for the edge because it enables service providers to verify SONET installation and perform end-to-end SONET testing in the field.
