Enablence Leads RFoG Session at OFC/NFOEC 2011

Leader in Optical Components and Subsystems Presents Educational Session on Radio Frequency Over Glass at OFC/NFOC, March 8 in Los Angeles

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 14, 2011) - Enablence Technologies Inc. ("Enablence" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ENA), a global innovator in fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) multi-service access platforms for triple-play residential and business services and optical components and subsystems for access, metro and long-haul markets, announced today that Chief Technology Officer Jim Farmer will present "RFoG: Foggy or Real?" at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition and the National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (OFC/NFOEC), the largest global conference and exposition for optical communications and networking professionals. The live, interactive session is scheduled for Thursday, March 8, 2011 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Los Angeles, CA.

"Cable TV won't be 'cable' for much longer. The eventual transition to all-fiber networks means there will no longer be a coaxial cable running to each customer's house," explained Jim Farmer, Solutions Architect at Enablence. "This presentation at OFC/NFOEC will explore the full potential of next-generation optics that will replace signal-producing devices. Some cable operators want to continue sending radio frequency over glass, or RFoG, as a way to upgrade to fiber while postponing a complete overhaul. RFoG provides cable operators a way to break into FTTH without having to disrupt their operational procedures."

"RFoG is an important tool for cable operators because it allows them to extend their fiber networks without having to replace existing CPE and set-top boxes," noted Jeff Heynen, Directing Analyst, Broadband Access for Infonetics Research. "RFoG immediately improves the bandwidth it can offer subscribers, as well as video quality."

OFC/NFOEC is a premier international event for both the science and business of optical communications and networking. With a comprehensive technical program and the largest, all-optical business exhibition, OFC/NFOEC creates and maintains a strong link between technical excellence and business practice. Attendees of OFC/NFOEC work in Access/FTTx, Carrier/Transport/Telecom, Datacom, Test and Measurement, Green Technology, Optical Grids, and many other optical communications fields. For more information on the full program of sessions at OFC/NFOEC 2011, visit http://www.ofcnfoec.org/home.aspx.
