JANUARY 31, 2008 -- Digital Lightwave Inc. (search for Digital Lightwave), provider of optical networking test equipment and technology, has announced a limited time, customer loyalty program for existing customers who want to upgrade their existing NIC Platform products to 40/43-Gbit/sec testing capability.
"We have always provided investment protection to our loyal customers," asserts John Ferguson, vice president of global sales. "The 40/43G testing solution is currently being demonstrated to key global customers. We want to make sure that those who have invested in the NIC Platform will be able to get the testing capabilities they need at an affordable price and with a priority delivery schedule."
The NIC Platform offers SONET, SDH, OTN, and Ethernet testing, traditionally up to 10 Gbits/sec. A new module was announced in 2007 to provide 40 Gbits/sec and 43 Gbits/sec to support the most advanced optical networks, say company representatives. The new module is available in the NIC 40G test set, which Digital Lightwave claims is the industry's smallest and lightest 40/43G testing device. For a complete telecom and datacom solution, the 40/43G module can be configured in the NIC Plus (portable) or NIC EP (rackmount) to provide PDH/T-Carrier and SONET/SDH testing from 1.5 Mbits/sec to 43 Gbits/sec plus NextGen (VCAT, LCAS, GFP), Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), and 10 GbE in one unit, says the company. Digital Lightwave's 40/43-Gbit/sec options are applicable to research and development, manufacturing, and field deployment applications.
The company says customers who place an order for 40/43G upgrade of existing NIC product before March 31, 2008, will receive a special loyalty program discount, a full three-year limited warranty on the entire instrument, priority scheduling, product recertification, software updates, calibration, a calibration certificate, unit function test, and cleaning for no extra charge.
