Ortronics/Legrand Selects VeriWave™ WaveTest™ 90 to Conduct Wireless LAN Testing

PORTLAND, OR and NEW LONDON, CT -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 5, 2006 -- VeriWave, Inc., the leading provider of performance analysis tools for wireless local area network (WLAN) devices and networks, today announced that Ortronics/Legrand, a global leader in high performance structured cabling systems, has chosen VeriWave wireless LAN (WLAN) test equipment for its wireless lab. Ortronics/Legrand will be utilizing the VeriWave WaveTest 90 to test its family of Wi-Jack™ wireless access points, including the new Wi-Jack Duo™ access point, the world's smallest dual band/dual radio AP that mounts discretely in a standard, single-gang wall outlet.

The WaveTest 90 is a multi-client traffic generator and performance analyzer that is designed for equipment manufacturers to accurately analyze the performance of their WLAN infrastructure products, as well as for carriers and enterprise users that want to make the right choice when selecting WLAN equipment for deployment in their networks. The WaveTest 90 offers a complete set of tests to benchmark scalability and fast secure roaming capabilities of Access Points and WLAN switches, the essential element for wide acceptance of WLANs. "We selected the WaveTest 90 because it is the only product that allows us to fully load our APs with a large number of stateful wireless clients and the benefit of testing to the IEEE benchmarks," states Tony Walker, wireless marketing manager for Ortronics/Legrand. "It provides key capabilities, like scalability, accuracy, repeatability and automation, which will not only significantly shorten our time to market for new products, it assures us that any new products we develop will have the reliability needed for the mission critical applications in which our customers are using our wireless access points."

"VeriWave is proud to partner and assist Ortronics in proving the performance and capacity of their Wi-Jack Duo," said Eran Karoly, VeriWave's Vice President of Marketing. "The WaveTest 90 traffic generator/analyzer allows WLAN equipment vendors, for the first time, to test the true scalability and performance of their systems. By offering extensive automation and clear reporting, we are able to expand test coverage, lower test costs, and shorten test cycles resulting in higher quality products and faster overall time-to-market."
