Comments from Garwood customers 

" Garwood Laboratories truly understands the time-to-market issues involved with environmental certification of telecommunications products, particularly the NEBS (Network Equipment Building Systems) specifications. The management and testing effort that Garwood put forth throughout the program kept Luminous well informed of status, and was essential in completing the NEBS level 3 requirements successfully."
