SAN DIEGO -- Monitoring Division, Inc., a revolutionary network performance monitoring company launched this month, today announced at The Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition (OFC) and The National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (NFOEC) that it has raised $3.85 million in its initial round of funding, led by Starfish Ventures and National ICT Australia (NICTA). The company will use the funds to further establish and prove its network performance intelligence technology.

The new company's first product is a ground breaking Optical Signal-to-Noise Ratio (OSNR) monitor that will help telecommunications OEMs and carrier customers better distinguish and rapidly measure the impairments caused by optical amplifier noise, improving the ability to manage next generation optical networks cost-effectively.

"The introduction of this new tool to analyze the performance of high-speed optical networks will significantly reduce the costs telecommunications carriers currently face in identifying, locating and measuring core network problems," said Starfish Ventures investment principal Michael Panaccio. "The rapidly growing and intense worldwide interest in Monitoring Division's technology performance is testimony to the impressive results being driven by the founding team's high level of expertise and accomplishments."
