SHF Communication Recognized by Frost & Sullivan
for Outstanding Product Line Strategy:
Innovative SHF 10000 BERT Series has End-Users in Mind
Berlin, September 17, 2008 – SHF Communication Technologies AG receives Frost & Sullivan’s 2008 Global Product Line Strategy Award. The award is dedicated to the company’s SHF 10000 bit error rate test platform which is used by research institutions and network equipment manufacturers worldwide in the development of next-generation data transmission networks. The equipment allows for the precise measurement of transmission quality. Dr. Frank Hieronymi, CEO of SHF states: „Our systems are designed by engineers for engineers. This is reflected by the suitability for daily use. We are proud that our efforts are recognized with this prestigious award.”
Along with flexibility and system comprehensiveness, the key factor for this decision was the wide area of applications. In addition to 10 and 40 Gbps applications, the system already supports the development of the future 100 Gbps Ethernet standard, which makes it a future-proof investment. Its modular approach and the availability of optical transmitters for various modulation formats, as well as further modules like optical receivers and clock recoveries, smoothly allow for assembly of complete systems for testing of different optical and electrical transmissions. In particular the ease of use has to be emphasized, which enables novices and experts alike to fulfill their measurement tasks comfortably and completely.
Jessy Cavazos, Frost & Sullivan Industry Manager, said: “Our market research on the currently available BERT market clearly demonstrated that SHF is an ideal choice for telco and research customer. The SHF solution scores highly in all categories but particularly in its ease of use and profound insight into customers’ needs and product demands.”
For SHF, this award is also a recognition of the company’s strategy to offer customized products. The instruments are developed in close contact with the customers and are continuously adapted to market needs. Furthermore, essential components have been designed by SHF internally.
“We will continue our efforts to offer best- in-class products to our customers that are tailored to their individual demands in the best possible way and enable them to develop the next generation of network equipment,” explains Dr. Hieronymi.
