Ikanos NodeScale Vectoring Wins 2011 IP&TV Industry Award for Best Enabling Silicon Technology for IPTV

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwire - March 28, 2011) - Ikanos Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: IKAN), a leading provider of advanced broadband semiconductor and software products for the digital home, today announced that it was honored with the prestigious IP&TV Industry Award for Best Enabling Silicon, IP or Component Technologies for IP TV Award for its NodeScale™ Vectoring DSL access technology. The IP&TV Industry Awards honor technology organizations and service providers for their innovation, excellence, and achievement in the IPTV industry. This particular award was designed to showcase the product, which offers the most significant new prospects for increasing revenue, managing costs, improving quality and increasing satisfaction in the industry.

"NodeScale Vectoring technology was designed to deliver the performance of fiber over the existing copper infrastructure," said John Quigley, CEO and president at Ikanos. "With it, service providers around the world should be able to deliver new bandwidth-intensive offerings like IPTV more rapidly and more cost effectively than ever before."

This breakthrough DSL access technology enables 100 megabit per second (Mbps) performance and beyond, which is a speed that was previously unattainable in the vast majority of the world's service provider networks. By deploying Ikanos' state-of the-art NodeScale Vectoring technology, service providers will be able to extend very high-speed Internet access and new critical services -- including multiple high-definition television streams, distance learning, video conferencing, telemedicine, and more -- without having to incur the high costs of installing complete fiber-to-the-home networks.
