Zhone Technologies Announces Network Expansion With SRT Communications To Support Microsoft Mediaroom

Zhone Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:ZHNE), a global leader in FTTx network access solutions, today announced that its industry-leading MXK™ multi-service access node (MSAN) will be used by SRT Communications (SRT) in combination with Microsoft® Mediaroom® to deliver new IPTV and video services via ADSL2+ and fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks.

As the largest telephone cooperative in North Dakota, SRT serves 48,000 customers, including consumers, businesses and governmental agencies, and has remained a regional leader in deploying enhanced telecommunications services for the past 60 years. SRT currently provides broadband and dial-up Internet services, wireless service and cable TV as well as traditional telephone, leased line, voicemail and long-distance voice services. After a year-long trial with Zhone, SRT chose to fully utilize the MXK for its new Microsoft Mediaroom-based video offering (SRTVision) to achieve its expansion plans to reach the 5,800 unserved subscribers in its coverage area. SRT is also one of Zhone’s first customers, having deployed the MALC™ MSAN solution almost a decade ago when SRT was seeking an extendable and cost-effective solution to deliver broadband services to its customers.

“Zhone has proven to be a valuable partner in our growth strategy over the years, providing the technology solutions and support needed to design flexible access networks for our multi-play service needs,” noted Shawn Grosz, Director of Network Technology, SRT Communications. “Zhone’s support of the Microsoft Mediaroom platform, their overall responsiveness during the trial phase and the ability of the MXK system to effectively support our unique mix of multicast and unicast network traffic needs will help improve our ability to deliver IPTV services effectively to our customers. With the migration flexibility of the existing MALC installed base, we were able to ensure that the new network build utilizing the MXK system will be completed cost-effectively.”
