Gridpoint Systems and Resolute Showcase Connection Oriented Carrier Ethernet Solution to Accelerate TDM Service Delivery

Integration to enable providers to rapidly plan, provision and protect T1/E1 and OC3 services over cost effective, multi-vendor, converged network

MODIIN, ISRAEL AND OTTAWA, CANADA--(CCNMatthews - March 29, 2007) - Gridpoint Systems™ an emerging supplier of Connection Oriented Carrier Ethernet solutions and Resolute Networks Ltd., the leading solutions provider of standards-compliant sub-system and OEM solutions for circuit-emulation applications, today announced a partnership to enable service providers to speed T1/E1 and OC3 service delivery over a converged Ethernet network. The companies' first solution will be demonstrated at CTIA Wireless 2007 highlighting how service providers can ease network planning, rapidly provision connections and maximize service availability of emulated TDM services over Ethernet.

The Gridpoint Systems' Carrier Ethernet solution integrates Resolute's market leading CMX-1624 Quad T1/E1 and Ethernet TDM over Packet Gateway Module and is fully managed by Gridpoint Systems' multi-vendor Value Management Suite™ (VMS).

"We are pleased to welcome Resolute to our growing partner program," said David King, vice president of marketing and product line management. "Resolute's Tier 1 OEM design win announcements further validate our strategy to integrate and offer best of breed solutions to our customers."

The CTIA Wireless 2007 demonstration will showcase how Gridpoint Systems' VMS enables planners to easily visualize and configure a multi-vendor Ethernet network delivering TDM services by unleashing the power of Resolute's sub-systems. The VMS enables a traffic engineered tunnel to be provisioned with the required bandwidth profile and quality of service (QoS) parameters via two mouse clicks, dramatically reducing configuration times and eliminating the potential for operator error. In addition advanced traffic management and maintenance capabilities will be featured. Gridpoint System's Ethernet SLA Protection™ (ESP) ensures service levels are maintained during network congestion and maximized during hard failures. The company's "bridge and roll" feature reroutes live traffic without service interruption, enabling card replacement or load balancing without customer service impact in line with previous technologies. Even dual homing TDM services to the customer premises is made possible, providing a significant advantage over current TDM deployment techniques.

"The combination of Resolute's CES module together with Gridpoint Systems' connection oriented VMS management system provides a unique way of rapidly provisioning robust and resilient TDM services over any combination of PON, cable , carrier Ethernet or wireless infrastructures," states Brian Bortz, VP of Marketing. "This will accelerate the use of packet switched infrastructure for TDM business and wholesale services which is annually worth more than $100Bn."

Visitors are welcome to view a live demonstration at Gridpoint Systems' booth (5383) at CTIA Wireless 2007 which is being held in Orlando, Florida from March 27-29th, 2007.
