Crowthorne, Berks ? 25 February 2009: A powerful new multi-protocol diagnostic tool for network performance testing and hardware device development is now available to UK communications, aerospace and defence industries as a result of an exclusive distribution deal between Fibre Technologies Ltd and Absolute Analysis, a U.S-based manufacturer of test solutions for high-speed serial data communication devices.

Fibre Technologies is the sole UK distributor for Absolute Analysis Investigator?, a high-speed multi-protocol data analyser that offers developers, managers and testers the ability to connect into any serial-based data stream, drill down into the packet layer and then capture, interrogate and simulate data. The solution is available in a variety of different configurations and chassis, such as laptop, desktop and portable. This enables the Investigator? to be used in any situation whether in the lab or in the field.

Peter Brownell, director of sales at Absolute Analysis, states: ?Our aim is to become the de-facto standard for high speed protocol test solutions in the UK. Fibre Technologies’ technical expertise and industry reputation, along with its established customer base, means that the company is in the best position to help us achieve this in the UK.”

David Taylor, technical sales manager at Fibre Technologies, adds: ?The ability of the Absolute Analysis Investigator? to comprehensively analyse data is invaluable to developers of high-speed network protocols looking to test new products and services before delivery to market. Being sole distributor gives us the opportunity to add more value to our customers’ development activities and gives us an opportunity to break into a number of industries that we currently have limited exposure to.”
