Zhone Technologies Chosen By Cornerstone Telephone For Latest MXK Deployment

Zhone Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:ZHNE), a global leader in FTTx network access solutions, today announced the addition of Cornerstone Telephone to its MXK customer roster. An advanced communications solutions provider headquartered in Troy, NY, Cornerstone has been a competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) provider since 2001. The company offers telephone, x-digital subscriber lines (xDSL) and Ethernet over coax (EoC) services to more than 13,000 access line customers, and delivers comprehensive communication solutions and innovative technologies aligned with customers' organizational objectives.

Cornerstone deployed Zhone’s industry leading MXK™ as its multi-service access solution for business VoIP and high speed Ethernet-over-copper services for area businesses in Syracuse; Oneonta; New York City; Poughkeepsie; and Richmond. Cornerstone chose the MXK to provide both copper and fiber services on a single platform based on their rewarding experience with the deployment of Zhone’s MALC™ multi-service platform within their network.

“Zhone’s ability to deliver both VoIP and High Speed Internet Access with the greatest port density in the smallest footprint is the key deciding factor in our MXK deployment,” declared Don Walsh, chief technical officer of Cornerstone Telephone. “Our relationship with Zhone is strengthened by this upgrade, and we and our customers are already enjoying the benefits of speed, efficiency and cost-effectiveness.”

The MXK offers Cornerstone’s customers bandwidth increases and provides both data and VoIP for expanded revenue opportunities and improved customer satisfaction. Cornerstone will continue to rely on the MXK’s 460 Gbps backplane, 28 Gbps uplinks and Terabit switching capacity along with 72 ports of POTS/VoIP, 72 ports of ADSL2+ and extended rate SHDSL-EFM cards.

“This domestic deployment furthers our customer base in the Northeastern United States and our strong relationship with Cornerstone and prove once again that our solutions are the right fit for business services,” said Brian Caskey, chief marketing officer of Zhone. “The featured flexibility of the MXK serves just the purpose Cornerstone needs – to provide hybrid networking capabilities for its local businesses.”
