FTE Networks Files Provisonal Patent Application for CrossLayer™ Technology Covering Decentralized Internet and Cloud Services

Technology Designed to Reduce Network Latency, Improve Bandwidth Capacity and Provide Enhanced Security

NAPLES, FL--(Marketwired - October 31, 2017) - FTE Networks, Inc. (OTCQX: FTNW) ("FTE" or the "Company"), a leading provider of innovative technology-oriented solutions for smart platforms, network infrastructure and buildings, today announced that it has filed a provisional patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for CrossLayer™ technology covering the decentralized provision of internet and cloud services.

Networks are composed of OEM devices that bundle hardware and software together at centralized sites. Networks generally then use extensions to provide services to end users. CrossLayer™ technology enables software and hardware ecosystems to be deployed on-site at the building, which can deliver converged carrier-grade network and cloud services to building tenants. CrossLayer™ capability regarding edge deployment and convergence of cloud and network access is designed to reduce network latency, increase bandwidth to content and cloud services, and provide levels of security that customers cannot obtain with other network architectures. Its unique architecture enables CrossLayer™ to deliver managed high-speed networks to individual buildings and large-scale commercial projects.

"We are pleased to announce the filing of this provisional patent application as it further supports our company's growth strategy," said Mr. Michael Palleschi, President and CEO of FTE Networks.
