Timbercon, Inc., a leader in the development and manufacturing of fiber optic products and connectivity solutions, announced today a team event with EXFO to provide a special fiber optic cable testing event at the AFCEA WEST 2008 show in San Diego, February 5-7, 2008.

“Our goal with this event is to provide attendees an opportunity to better understand the attributes associated with fiber optic cable performance,” commented John Lee, vice president of sales and marketing for Timbercon. “Using EXFO’s best-of-class IQS-12001B Cable Assembly Test System for this event has enabled us to demonstrate cutting edge equipment, procedures and processes associated with cable testing, measurement and verification.”

The free cable test event is open to all attendees of the AFCEA WEST 2008 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?” For questions, additional information or to set up a booth appointment, contact: Sean Gitt at 503-827-8141 or seang@timbercon.com.
