Nayna Networks Completes Purchase of Abundance Networks

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 23, 2006 -- Nayna Networks, Inc., (OTC BB: NAYN), a provider of next generation network solutions headquartered in Santa Clara, California, USA, today announced the close of its purchase of privately-held Abundance Networks of Shelton, Connecticut with regional sales and R&D offices in Mumbai, India. Nayna will purchase the AN 3000 and AN 12000 Next Generation SONET/SDH managed optical multiplexer products as well as the supporting standards based Element Management System, NetCharmer.

The purchase of these assets will broaden Nayna's product line by adding Abundance's integrated access managed TDM/Ethernet over SONET/SDH optical solutions to Nayna's Fiber to The Premises (FTTP) ExpressSTREAM products. The Abundance R&D team will significantly expand Nayna's capability to further develop and enhance its current product line. Also, Abundance's extensive distribution channels in India will give Nayna the opportunity to sell its product line in the India market.

"We are excited to close on this acquisition and looking forward to working with the Abundance team in executing our growth strategy," said Naveen Bisht, president and CEO, Nayna Networks, Inc. "This acquisition will provide a key platform for Nayna to take advantage of the high-growth opportunities in emerging markets like India."

"Joining with Nayna will allow Abundance to expand both its product offering and market reach," added Suresh Pillai, President and CEO of Abundance Networks. "We have been successful in the Indian market with our STM-1 and STM-4 solutions and, as part of Nayna, we will be able to market these solutions worldwide. With Nayna's resources, we will also be able to further develop our metro edge product line, thus enabling us to deliver the range of product offerings our customers are demanding."

"The addition of Abundance Networks will allow Nayna to offer a complete end-to-end broadband solution to our customers," said Gautam Chanda, vice president, Business Development, Nayna Networks.
