Press Release Body: GAO Tek Releases New Optical Device: Hand held OTDR

Toronto, Canada - GAO Tek Inc. is pleased to announce its new hand held optical time
domain reflectometer (OTDR): GAO3620.

With high memory capacity for testing data, the GAO3620 OTDR is capable of
performing multiple calculations such as length, attenuation coefficient, connection
point, fault point and loss distribution curves of the fiber. The optical device
performs tasks such as loss characteristics analysis and fault point searching. It
also shows the loss between two points, splice loss and return loss. Even though
this OTDR has numerous features and functions it remains small in size, is easy to
use and is designed to be highly durable even for outdoor operations. It is being
widely used today in fiber manufacture, installation and maintenance. GAO's
hand-held OTDR is compatible with CATV, ISP and Telecommunications Fiber Networks.

Handle OTDR GAO3620 Key Features:

. Portable design, convenient for outdoor testing
. User friendly with simple operation menu
. Supports two markers combined
. Supports zooming in and out for specified details
. Knob design for easy operation
. Automatically searches fault points and creates a list
. More memory for test data
. Rapid response time - capable of finishing 50km fiber measurement in 30s with high
. Longer battery life, over 12 hours
. Reliable and durable
