CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Digital Lightwave(R), Inc. and PE.fiberoptics Ltd, leading providers of technology and test instruments for fiber-optic networks, today announced a strategic sales and marketing partnership. Digital Lightwave will sell and distribute PE.fiberoptics' range of portable chromatic dispersion and PMD analyzers exclusively in the United States and on a non-exclusive basis in certain other territories.

PE.fiberoptics products are used to characterize optical fiber in R&D, manufacturing and field applications. Laboratory and portable models are available for testing chromatic dispersion, PMD, spectral attenuation and other parameters that can impact the transport of higher data rates and multiple wavelengths. The ONA 600, Chromos 11, and Nexus products enable Digital Lightwave to offer a complete fiber-optic testing solution. Data rates of 10 Gbps and 40 Gbps and DWDM have greatly increased the need for fiber characterization test equipment.

"We are pleased to add the PE.fiberoptics products to our array of test and measurement offerings," said Michael Riddick, Senior Vice President of Sales and Business Development for Digital Lightwave. "With our strong customer base, and broad geographic footprint, we are uniquely positioned to leverage this partnership to the benefit of both partners while remaining focused on bringing the best products to our customers."

Digital Lightwave is a leader in technology and test instruments for SONET, SDH, OTN, ATM, Ethernet and DWDM networks with a worldwide customer base including equipment manufacturers, carriers, research laboratories, schools and government entities. The PE.fiberoptics equipment will be sold through Digital Lightwave's direct sales personnel and distribution channels.

"Our technology is second to none," said Ian Mackenzie, Chief Executive Officer of PE.fiberoptics. "With the Digital Lightwave strategic partnership, we are now able to offer measurement solutions to many more potential customers and take advantage of the synergy between our two companies. We are looking forward to a profitable and successful relationship with Digital Lightwave."
