Transmode achieves NEBS Level 3 certification

30 January 2003 -- Transmode Systems' System 1100 CWDM equipment has received Network Equipment Building Standards (NEBS) level 3 certification.

30 January 2003 -- Stockholm-based Transmode Systems AB says that its System 1100 coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM) equipment has successfully completed Network Equipment Building Standards (NEBS) level 3 compliance testing.

The certificate, issued by Telcordia Technologies, further strengthens Transmode's position in the US carrier marketplace, Transmode says.

To achieve the certification, the CWDM equipment underwent rigorous testing, including thermal shock, earthquake vibration, temperature variations and electrostatic discharge. The testing was performed by ETL Semko in Lexington, Kentucky and in Stockholm.

Transmode has been shipping CWDM systems since March 2001. "Our installed base of (UL and CE certified) CWDM equipment in Europe and the US has provided us with field data indicating high reliability", says Johan Sandell, vice president R&D at Transmode.

* The CWDM equipment was run in a live demonstration, including management capabilities, in the booth of new US distributor Walker and Associates at the COMNET 2003 exhibition in Washington DC, 28-30 January.
