Enablence AGM to Feature First Demonstration of a Fully Integrated PLC Transceiver in an Operational Fiber-to-the-Home System

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 21, 2007) - Enablence Technologies Inc. ("Enablence" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:ENA), a developer of Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) Transceivers for optical modems, is pleased to announce the following:

1. Enablence will demonstrate an operational Fiber-to-the-Home system using its Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC) based Transceiver at its Annual General Meeting on August 27th, 2007.

The demonstration at the AGM will be the first public display of triple-play services running on a truly integrated PLC-based Transceiver inside a commercially available Fiber-to-the-Home system. The network will be running High Definition Television (HDTV), internet, voice and data services on a single optical fiber over a 20 km distance.

"The introduction of a truly PLC-based transceiver for FTTH represents a major milestone in the industry as it now provides the long awaited low cost solution for optical network terminals. This will increase the pace with which FTTH deployments can take place and allow the average consumer to finally have access to true broadband at a low cost," says Arvind Chhatbar, the Chief Executive Officer of Enablence Technologies Inc.

2. The Corporation is also pleased to provide an update on product qualification testing. Enablence's PLC-based Transceivers have now successfully passed all required Telcordia mechanical integrity tests for product qualification, and the remaining environmental stress tests are already underway.

3. Enablence also wishes to report that on August 9th, 2007 it re-filed its April 30, 2007 Management Discussion & Analysis and Audited Financial Statements to include additional disclosure. These disclosures had no impact on the previously reported results of operations.

The Enablence Technologies Annual General Meeting will be held at the Brookstreet Hotel in Kanata, on August 27th at ten o'clock in the morning.
