Enablence Wins $12.4 Million Next Generation Broadband Access Order in Central Asia

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 30, 2010) - Enablence Technologies Inc. ("Enablence" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ENA), a leading supplier of fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) equipment for triple-play residential and business services and optical components and subsystems for access, metro and long-haul markets, received a US$12.4 million order for its advanced next-generation network solution from a Tier 1 Central Asian telecom services provider.

This order is from an existing Enablence customer that is rapidly expanding its network deployment for next generation services to provide triple-play broadband services that requires the replacement of existing aging systems with advanced systems from Enablence in new serving areas. 

Enablence is providing its advanced Multi Services Access Gateway (MSAG) platform, the BroadAccess-1000E. The platform offers an ideal solution for this emerging market's growing demand for enhanced services, through the implementation of high-speed Ethernet design, advanced VoIP, ADSL2+ and IP capabilities, and the support of a wide range of voice and broadband services. By incorporating the multi-functionalities of an MSAG and IP-DSLAM, BroadAccess-1000E enables the efficient delivery of a complete set of triple-play applications for residential and business customers.

Enablence will deliver US$5 million worth of BroadAccess equipment in the next 2-3 weeks with another $7.4 million to follow within Q2 ending December 31, 2010, totaling $12.4 million. 

"As with all large telco orders Enablence successfully completed a competitive selection process to emerge as the supplier of choice. We have the ability to win and the ability to deliver on large Tier 1 projects in a very short period of time to meet the most demanding client requirements," said Tim Thorsteinson, CEO of Enablence. "This project demonstrates that Enablence is well positioned to serve the key international growth markets and Tier 1 opportunities. With the addition of Teledata's cutting edge solutions to our portfolio of advanced next-generation copper and all-optical broadband access products, we will continue to pursue opportunities in these markets."
