July 27, 2005 Marlboro, MA -- Fiber Optic Network Solutions (FONS) announced that it has significantly expanded its testing capabilities within its passive fiber-optic component (PFOC) laboratory, under Verizon's PFOC certification program.

In addition to FONS's current PFOC certifications for GR-326, GR-1209, and GR-1221 testing of fiber-optic assemblies, connectors, and couplers, the company says it has now expanded its capabilities to include the testing of optical splice closures, optical fiber demarcation boxes, and hardened fiber-optic connectors. Under the observance of a Verizon-approved Independent Testing Laboratory (ITL), the company now ensures that GR-771, GR-2898, and GR-3120 testing is conducted on its products, in order to meet Verizon's stringent requirements.

According to FONS, with its extensive testing capabilities for FTTP applications, the company is able to accelerate product testing and approval while assuring the highest standards on all processes and quality controls. With local management of testing activities and quality processes, the company says it can independently validate that its products are optimally designed for FTTP's harsh environmental applications and service life requirements, that the manufacturing process is controlled and executed properly, and that manufacturing conditions consistently produce high quality products.
