Network Simulation Module for Fiber-Optics

July 20, 2007

Timbercon Develops 250 km network simulation modules for testing and measurement of fiber networks, test equipment, and optical sub-systems.

LAKE OSWEGO, OR,-- Timbercon, Inc., an industry leader in the supply and manufacturing of custom fiber optic products and solutions, introduces the 250 km network simulation module designed as a platform for improved testing and measurement of fiber networks, test equipment and optical sub-systems requiring extended fiber channel lengths.

The Timbercon 250 km network simulation module is the longest single-chassis network simulation module on the market, requiring less physical rack space requirements and eliminating the daisy chaining of multiple modules together, necessary to achieve longer length simulation channels.

"The 250 km network simulation module has been developed as a solution for applications requiring extended distance fiber links," mentioned John J. Lee, vice president at Timbercon, Inc. "Using traditional network simulation boxes, it may take several boxes daisy chained together to achieve the same distance available in a single 250km Timbercon network simulation module."

The module is available with any number of channels and a variety of fiber and connector types. For shorter fiber length requirements, Timbercon offers network simulation modules in lengths from 100 m to 200 km.

All Timbercon network simulation modules are highly customizable, allowing each module to be designed and built to emulate virtually any network or scenario. Specific events at defined locations (distances), multiple connection types, multiple channels with varied lengths or a combination of all are increasingly sought after options.
