BT Opts for Acterna Testers

ALDERMASTON, U.K. -- Acterna (NASDAQ: ACTR) today announced that British Telecom has selected Acterna as its preferred supplier of optical testers. The three-year contract to supply BT with OTDRs, software and attentuators was won against stiff competition, on the basis of the superior performance and functionality of Acterna's rugged, portable MTS field tester.

Following comparative trials, BT's senior technical advisor reported that the MTS OTDR had outperformed all other units tested. BT was also impressed with the number of extra features and functions such as traffic detection, fault location mode, which are included as standard on the MTS.

David Bastin, BT Optical Products Plant Manager, stated: "This cost-effective, future-proofed OTDR, with its compact design and ease of use, makes it a prefect match for BT requirements." Acterna OTDRs will be used by operations and maintenance teams throughout the BT network in testing and commissioning optical fibre cables prior to systems going live.
