Genesis Technical Systems Corp: 400 mbps Rural Broadband Over Existing Copper at 1/20th Cost of Fiber Lets Rural Telcos Provide HDTV Over DSL (BDR)

See BDR Work at Booth # 215 OPASTCO Show July 15, 2008

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 11, 2008) - Rural Telcos, using a new breakthrough technology called Bonded DSL Rings(TM) (BDR), can turn their copper wire infrastructure into a new profit centre and at the same time provide their customers with a feature rich high bandwidth experience previously only available to suburban Telco customers.

With BDR Telcos can deliver up to 400 megabits per second bandwidth to their Rural and Urban customers at 1/20th the cost of fiber over existing copper phone lines.

BDR is being showcased at Booth # 215 of the Organization For the Promotion and Advancement of Small Telecommunication Companies (OPASTCO) summer conference and Trade Show in Quebec City July 13 to 16, 2008 and at Booth # 312 at the Broadband World Forum Asia 2008 in Hong Kong July 15 to 18, 2008.

Rural Broadband has not kept up with bandwidth deployment in urban areas because until BDR there has not been an economical way for Telcos or cable to deliver high bandwidth broadband services to rural customers.

Benefits to Rural Telco customers from Bonded DSL Rings(TM) include being able to access urban style Telco services including HDTV over DSL; High Quality Video phone calls; Home security monitoring with video, E911 when power fails and download speeds exceeding what future cable will offer urban customers. In addition, with BDR Telco customers get greater reliability and quality of service plus convergence of Wired/Wireless telephony called Fixed Mobile Convergence.

Bonded DSL Rings combines DSL and Resilient Packet Rings (RPR) to provide greater bandwidth and higher quality services to Telco customers. "It utilizes two very familiar and successful technologies and is completely pay-as-you-go, eliminating the huge early investment required by fiber-to-the-premises networks," "It reuses the existing wireline network infrastructure to provide a 400 Mbps Resilient Packet Ring." stated James Heath, Director of Broadband Research at Dittberner Associates.

"GTS's BDR solution provides Quality of Service (QoS) which creates a new paradigm in telecom service delivery in such an economical way that it can be applied throughout a Telco's entire rural and urban network," stated Stephen Cooke, inventor of BDR.

BDR is more environmentally friendly and gives a better ROI than fiber. Fiber frequently requires digging up streets in the neighborhood where it is being deployed which is incredibly messy and capital expensive in urban areas and not at all economically feasible in rural areas.

BDR gives Telcos a competitive advantage in Rural and Urban broadband markets. It delivers speeds faster than cable (see graph on following page). Also, BDR helps Telcos achieve convergence of wired and wireless telephony.

With BDR Telcos can provide customers high quality premium services that exceed what cable offers. This will enhance the Telco customer's experience and also allow Telcos to charge for premium services. Some of the premium services Telcos can offer with BDR include HDTV over DSL (IPTV), video phone calls, remote home security monitoring with video, 3D TV, medical monitoring, home network management and continuous automated meter reading as well as higher bandwidth broadband Internet access for faster uploads and downloads and a host of other applications.

Bonded DSL Rings(TM) is a patent pending technology from Genesis Technical Systems Corp of Calgary, Canada. A proof of concept of BDR was demonstrated successfully at the Broadband World Forum in Berlin, Germany in October 2007 and at the MINT Lab at the U of A, in Edmonton, Alberta in November 2007 in conjunction with TR Labs Building the Next Generation Internet Network Workshop.
