Zhone Technologies to Showcase FiberLAN Solution Suite and New Line of VDSL2
Modems at Three Industry-Leading Events in October
Service providers to benefit from new technologies that deliver cost savings of
up to 92 percent compared to traditional copper
Oakland, CA - October 16, 2012 - Zhone Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZHNE), a
global leader in FTTx network access solutions, will showcase its GPON-based
FiberLAN Optical LAN solution (OLS) and a new line of multi-port VDSL2 bonded
and 30A profile modems at three industry events - Gitex (stand z-32), Broadband
World Forum (stand E30) and TelcoTV 2012(booth 909) - in October. While at the
shows, Zhone will demonstrate how service providers can take advantage of
FiberLAN for 73 percent reduction in capex and up to 84.7 percent increased
energy savings, when compared to traditional copper.
With the tidal wave of personal devices hitting the workplace and more companies
adopting cloud-based solutions- all in the name of making workers more
productive - enterprise networks are becoming strained and sluggish. To ensure
businesses deliver the high-speed connections needed to support access to cloud-
based applications and connected devices, service providers are turning to new
solutions like Zhone's FiberLAN suite and multi-port VDSL2 to help enterprises
improve efficiency while providing faster, more reliable network connections.
"Connected devices are permeating our lives - most recently in the workplace -
and service provider networks are feeling the strain," said Brian Caskey, chief
marketing officer of Zhone. "In order to keep up with bandwidth demands and
maintain productivity in the workplace, service providers and enterprise
customers are turning to VDSL2 and fiber technology for speed, reliability and
efficiency. In fact, companies can see cost savings of up to 92 percent annually
with our FiberLAN solutions."
Zhone's FiberLAN is a high-performance, high-density GPON-based OLS delivering
high speed data, voice and video. The fully-converged solution is scalable for
hotel rooms, bandwidth-demanding desktops and work-stations deployed in offices,
rooms, factories or other industrial harsh environments, delivering
comprehensive connectivity for any LAN requirement. Enabling converged triple-
play services over a single strand of fiber, the solution reduces the LAN
infrastructure cabling and electronics to a fraction of the requirements of a
traditional Ethernet LAN solution.
Zhone will also launch a new line of multi-port VDSL2 Bonded and 30A Profile
Modems. VDSL2 is particularly effective in the Fiber-to-the-Node (FTTN), Fiber-
to-the-Building (FTTB) and FTTC topology as the service provider reuses existing
copper deployed and enables high-speed connectivity to businesses utilizing
VDSL2 in the last mile, with fiber being extended to the node, building or curb.

of Zhone, will speak on the "Remaining Competitive in Next Generation Broadband
Deployments" panel in the Business Model Transformation Track on October 16 at
12:40 p.m. CEST. Caskey will also speak during the Optical Component Symposium
on October 16 at 1:45 p.m. CEST. In both tracks, he will address the business
