Allied Telesyn Adds VDSL2 Capability to Award-Winning iMAP integrated Multiservice Access Platform

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(CCNMatthews - Jan 24, 2006) -

Service Providers Now Able to Deliver IP Triple Play Services Previously Only Available on FTTH Networks

Allied Telesyn, a global provider of secure Ethernet/IP access solutions and an industry leader in the deployment of IP Triple Play networks over DSL and Fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) access infrastructures, today announced the availability of VDSL2 service modules for its award-winning iMAP integrated Multiservice Access Platform.

By delivering speeds up to ten times the performance of standard ADSL service, providers, operators, carriers and PTTs looking to provide IP Triple Play services such as IPTV, HDTV, online gaming and interactive TV can now deliver these enhanced services over VDSL2 on short loop copper infrastructure. Previously this was only possible on FTTH networks. The technology is particularly appealing technology in Fiber-to-the-Curb/Node (FTTC/N) and Fiber-to-the-Building/Premise (FTTB/P) deployments where fiber is available closer to the subscriber. Fiber-like speeds are then possible with VDSL2 over shorter copper loops.

"With the introduction of VDSL2 capability on the iMAP, we are yet again demonstrating ultimate platform flexibility and IP Triple Play access leadership," said Philip Yim, executive vice president of global marketing & product development. "No other supplier can deliver a carrier-grade IP access platform with such media transparency. It's a very clear market differentiator and one that is separating us from the rest of the market."

Allied Telesyn's VDSL2 solution is fully compliant with the new and most advanced standard of VDSL2, the ITU (G.993.2) broadband standard ratified in May 2005. The VDSL2 standard supports asymmetric and symmetric transmission at aggregated downstream and upstream speeds of up to 100 Mbps, with automatic fallback and backward compatibility with installed ADSL and ADSL2+ connections. This ensures investment protection where already deployed CPEs continue to operate normally and only require upgrade once services are subscribed to by consumers.

The VDSL2 service modules can be installed in any of Allied Telesyn's iMAP integrated Multiservice Access Platforms and can provide service to 24 VDSL2 customers per line card with wire-speed performance. In a fully populated iMAP 9700 configuration, up to 408 VDSL2 subscribers can be serviced from a single platform. The line card is available in Annex A and Annex B versions covering America and Europe, including ISDN regions such as Germany and Norway.

The RUS-accepted iMAP integrated Multiservice Access Platform is an environmentally-hardened access solution that delivers carrier-class next-generation and traditional telco services over IP. Available since 2001 and now powering over 100,000 IP Triple Play ports, the iMAP is a world-class last mile access and Ethernet transport solution providing high density modules for POTS, xDSL, T1/E1, Ethernet, active and GEPON FTTH technologies and now VDSL2. Recently voted the #1 OSP IP DSLAM by Heavy Reading (IP DSLAMs: Heavy Reading's Competitive Report. August 2005), Allied Telelsyn's iMAP offers unmatched system flexibility through the ability to 'mix and match' different networking technologies within the same platform.
