Digital Lightwave Buoyed by Strong OTN and Ethernet Sales

CLEARWATER, FL--(Marketwire - November 30, 2010) - Digital Lightwave®, Inc., a leading provider of optical networking test equipment and technology, today announced sales of OTN and Ethernet test equipment that exceeded all company forecasts throughout 2010.

"Digital Lightwave has been a leader in OTN testing since first adding support for this next generation of optical network to the NIC in 2002 and has been increasing its share of the Ethernet market with innovative product developments and subsequent sales growth," said Tony Goodchild, Director of Product Management and Marketing. He continued "Our expertise in the OTN and Ethernet test markets combined with the now global deployments of OTN networks and ongoing growth in Ethernet demand has pushed the NIC product into more carriers and equipment manufacturers around the world. This has resulted in sequential quarterly revenue growth in 2010 that exceeded the company's expectations."

OTN networks continue to be deployed by service providers around the world enabling them to the challenges of delivering high bandwidth services to customers whilst improving the efficiencies the service provider can achieve by minimizing bandwidth waste. Ongoing evolution of the technology standards is turning OTN into an enabling technology for service providers by allowing them to deliver packet based services such as Ethernet.

Robert Hussey, CEO, added, "Digital Lightwave has enjoyed strong operating profits during 2010 fueled certainly by our increasing OTN and Ethernet sales. We expect our ongoing R&D activities for 40G and 100G products supporting these technologies to further enhance our product offering in both the OTN and Ethernet segments which will power the company's growth throughout 2011."

Digital Lightwave's NIC product supports testing of OTN networks from 2.6Gb/s to 43Gb/s and Ethernet networks from 10Mb/s to 10Gb/s as well as SONET/SDH, NGN, PDH and Fibre Channel networks.
