A Look Inside Our Test Lab

with Brian Patton,
Vice President of Engineering

In this video, Brian Patton, Vice President of Engineering, gives the history of the Approved Networks fiber optic lab and testing facility in Lake Forest, California, and you’ll get a look at the state-of-the-art operations it is today. You’ll also meet our Technicians and QC Staff who run transceivers, fiber optic cables, passives, switches and more through our Gold Standard process.

We are NEBS Certified!

Approved Networks optical transceivers have undergone and passed the Network Equipment Building System (NEBS) compliance test through Intertek, the industry leader in quality assurance testing.

Our optical transceivers were put through extremes to ensure they can withstand maximal temperature, vibration, and humidity for continuous network integrity in the harshest environments.

Active Electrical Cables:
For Next Generation Networks

Issues in the Data Center are consistently looking to both increase and streamline connectivity while seeking ways to reduce costs. One of the recent advancements is the new Active Electrical Cables (AECs) from Approved Networks that can improve your servers and network efficiency. By connecting 100 Gigabit Ethernet ports to the 400 Gigabit Ethernet network in short reach, you can gain cost-effective throughput.
