Matisse Networks EtherBurst® Obtains NEBS Level 3 Certification

Matisse Networks, pioneer in the field of Optical Packet Transport systems, announced that it has received NEBS Level 3 Certification from MET Laboratories, Inc for its EtherBurst® products. The NEBS Certification demonstrates Matisse Networks’ continued commitment to the service provider market and enables the equipment to be deployed in central offices.

Network Equipment Building Systems (NEBS) testing is required in the U.S. for equipment operated in carrier networks. To obtain NEBS Level 3 Certification, the EtherBurst product portfolio was subject to extensive testing covering Ambient Temperature and Humidity, Equipment Handling, Resistance to Fire, Earthquake Survivability, Vibration, Airborne Contaminants, ESD, Emissions, and AC Power Fault. Complete compliance to all NEBS specifications ensures that the equipment being deployed is acceptable for use in service provider central offices.

Craig Easley, Vice President of Marketing for Matisse Networks said, “NEBS Level 3 is the highest level of conformance to the NEBS specifications and we are extremely proud that the EtherBurst Optical Packet Transport system has successfully completed this rigorous suite of tests. The certification demonstrates our commitment to providing high quality, ‘carrier-class’ products for the telecommunications industry.” Easley continued, “In addition to the basic NEBS Level 3 tests, our products were also tested for conformance with the AT&T and Verizon NEBS test extensions.”
