DECEMBER 19, 2007 -- Digital Lightwave Inc. (search for Digital Lightwave), provider of optical networking test equipment and technology, today announced that a major U.S. telecommunications carrier has selected its portable Network Information Computer (NIC) Platform for use in network deployment. The deal is valued at $1.08 million, including NIC platform hardware and software licensing, say company representatives.

The NIC Platform includes portable and rack-mount test instruments equipped to test SONET/SDH up to 40G; OTN up to 43G; Ethernet; next-generation SONET (VCAT, LCAS, GFP); Ethernet; and Fibre Channel. Leveraging the flexibility of the NIC NextGeneration Multi-Rate (NGMR) module, NIC Platform products can be equipped as needed today, and additional functionality can be added later with license-based test options, say company representatives.

"This major purchase demonstrates the industry's acceptance of our latest technology," contends Ted Myers, CEO of Digital Lightwave. "We have been providing portable SONET/SDH test equipment longer than any other company. Our latest developments in NextGen and the extension of our product up to 40/43G further cement our position as a leader in the test equipment industry."
