Zhone Technologies Secures Novosco Deployment Of MXK™

Zhone Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:ZHNE), a global pioneer in network access solutions, announced today that its industry-leading MXK™ multi-service access node (MSAN) system will serve as the core enabler of Novosco’s deployment of its Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) solution in Northern Ireland. A combination of Zhone’s industry-leading MXK MSAN and ETHX network termination devices have been deployed to support customers in Belfast and across the region. Novosco has added EFM to its suite of managed services to satisfy customer demand for cost-effective high-speed connectivity and to complement existing service offerings.

“EFM provides significant flexibility at a very competitive price point for our business customers,” explained Brian Caskey, chief marketing officer at Zhone. “As customer demand changes, driven by new applications and an ever-changing business environment, the Zhone solution enables service providers to quickly and reliably add bandwidth to meet customer needs.”

“Zhone’s EFM solutions give us a high level of flexibility in both our service and system configuration options,” said Patrick McCaliskey, managing director of Novosco. “With this advanced capability, we are now able to efficiently deliver the high-quality advanced services that will elevate our competitive position and accelerate our growth strategy in the coming months. The Zhone portfolio of products helps us extend our reach with our customers, and gives us the option of adopting technologies such as GPON and Active Ethernet, as demand dictates.”

Novosco began integrating Zhone’s MXK terabit access platform into its network in January and went live in March 2011. To date, Zhone has deployed more than 2,600 of its fully redundant, carrier-grade all-IP MXK platforms with more than 150 service providers in more than 40 countries globally. Zhone's MXK platform is a fully redundant, carrier-grade all-IP platform and the industry's first terabit access concentrator. Featuring industry-leading density, scalability and switching capacity, the MXK provides non-blocking capacity of up to 3,600 100 Mbps GPON subscribers or 360 1G Active Ethernet subscribers.
