Tollgrade Launches DigiTest(R) ICE.BG, Combined Metallic, XDSL, And G.SHDSL Testing In A Single Test Head, And Announces Successful Deployment With Major Communications Provider In The United Kingdom

PITTSBURGH, Oct. 27, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tollgrade Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:TLGD), a leading supplier of network service assurance test products and solutions, announces the general availability of the latest addition to our DigiTest family of test heads, the DigiTest ICE.BG. It combines metallic, xDSL, and g.SHDSL tests into a single unit, providing significant cost and space savings to companies who previously had to purchase separate units for xDSL and g.SHDSL testing. The ICE.BG joins Tollgrade's DigiTest ICE ® test head family of products, which include the ICE.BA, ICE.G, and ICE.LE, in offering accurate, fast, and reliable test and diagnostics to quickly resolve customer issues with rapid fault identification, location, and dispatch of repair crews.

"Many of our customers are providing xDSL and Ethernet First Mile (EFM) services from the same DSLAM," said Jim Domangue, Tollgrade's Senior Product Manager. "The need to pre-qualify, verify, and troubleshoot the copper loops for both residential and business class customers makes the ICE.BG the ideal test head to tackle their service requirements. The DigiTest ICE family, combined with the LoopCare™ test OSS, has a proven high dispatch accuracy and no trouble found reporting which leads to a reduction of the number of truck rolls and OPEX savings."

The ICE.BG has been successfully deployed at a major communications provider in the United Kingdom. After deployment of the ICE.BG and LoopCare in their network for our voice over IP, data, and EFM services, they were able to accurately test and analyze both residential customers' xDSL lines and business customers' EFM service with the same test head. The small footprint of the ICE.BG allowed it to fit in the limited space of their remote cabinets, allowing the customer to provide coverage for both services.
