Genesis Technical Systems Corp: 400 mbps Rural Broadband & Urban Over Copper Telephone Lines Using Bonded Dsl Rings™ (BDR)

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 26, 2008) - Genesis Technical Systems Corp (GTS) of Calgary, Canada developer of the patent pending Bonded DSL Rings(tm) Technology (BDR), successfully demonstrated its BDR proof of concept at the Broadband World Forum in Berlin, Germany in October 2007 and at the MINT Lab in conjunction with TR Labs "Building the Next Generation Internet Network Workshop" in Edmonton, Canada in November 2007.

High quality television over copper telephone lines can be a reality for Telcos using Bonded DSL Rings(TM). Bandwidths of up to 400 megabits per second - at a cost much lower than fiber - are achievable using BDR. This will allow Telcos to compete head-to-head with cable companies at a price point that is attractive to consumers and very profitable for Telcos.

BDR will give Telcos a competitive advantage in rural broadband and urban markets. BDR delivers speeds faster than cable (see graph on following page). BDR will give Telcos a better ROI and is more environmentally friendly that fiber.

There were an estimated 1.25 billion copper phone lines in service worldwide in 2005. North American Telcos are losing 10 percent of their copper telephone line customers to cable competitors each year. Bonded DSL Rings(TM) from GTS will be able to reverse these losses by providing economical high bandwidth service to rural broadband and urban customers wherever there are existing copper telephone lines.

With BDR's "complete Telco solution" (rural broadband and urban) Telcos can generate substantial new value from their existing copper telephone lines without the massive investment needed for fiber which is only a partial solution. Return on investment for Telco using BDR can be about one year in rural and urban areas compared to 10+ years for fiber deployment in urban areas only.

"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. "Also, because BDR reuses a Telco's existing copper telephone lines it is more environmentally friendly than fiber as there is no digging to install it and it can be used for automated meter reading by Utilities."

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. Examples of some of the premium services Telcos will be able to offer with BDR include Internet gaming, home security and medical monitoring, home network management and automated meter reading for utilities as well as HDTV, IPTV and higher bandwidth broadband Internet access for faster uploads and downloads.

Bonded DSL Rings from GTS combines DSL and Resilient Packet Rings (RPR) to provide greater bandwidth and higher quality services to the consumer. "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 successfully demonstrated its BDR proof of concept at the Broadband World Forum in Berlin, Germany in October 2007 and at the MINT Lab in conjunction with TR Labs Building the Next Generation Internet Network Workshop in Edmonton, Canada in November 2007.
