Timbercon partners with Direct Optical Research Company and Westover Scientific for Free Fiber Optic Cable Testing Event at NXTcomm 2007

LAKE OSWEGO, OR - June 1, 2007 — Timbercon, Inc., a leader in the development and manufacturing of fiber optic products and connectivity solutions, announced today a partnership with DORC (Direct Optical Research Company) and Westover Scientific to sponsor a special fiber optic cable testing and inspection event at the NXTcomm show in Chicago, June 19 — June 21, 2007. This event will provide attendees a chance to get a standard fiber optic cable cleaned, tested, inspected and analyzed with accompanying hard copy inspection report of the cable, all free of charge.

"Our goal in sponsoring this event is to provide attendees an opportunity to look at one of their own cables and better understand the attributes associated with its performance," commented John Lee, vice president of sales and marketing for Timbercon. "Teaming with Westover Scientific and Direct Optical Research Company as sponsors for this event has enabled us to demonstrate cutting edge equipment, procedures and processes associated with cable testing, measurement and verification."

For each cable provided, Timbercon will properly clean the cable assembly, perform an end face inspection with a Westover inspection scope to check for scratches, pits and contamination. Timbercon will then conduct an interferometry analysis using a DORC Interferometer to test for radius, apex offset, fiber height, angle, key error and fiber roughness inspection. Finally, Timbercon will provide a hard copy report summary of the cable.

The free test and inspection event is open to all attendees of the NXTcomm 2007 show. To participate, simply bring a standard fiber optic cable assembly to the Timbercon booth (#6471) during exhibit hours and ask a Timbercon representative, "How good is my cable?" Each event participant will receive an Armadillo loopback (singlemode or multimode) and be entered to win an Apple iPod. For questions, additional information or to set up a booth appointment, contact: Holly Woolard at 503-827-8141 or hollyw@timbercon.com.

For those interested in this opportunity, but are unable to attend the show, Timbercon has extended this opportunity through the month of July. For the extension, Timbercon will conduct the same cleaning, testing, inspection and analysis at the Timbercon headquarters in Lake Oswego, OR.
