Kabel Deutschland to Deploy Proxilliant's Cable Access Management System

Follows a Successful Trial of CAMS

MUNICH, GERMANY--(Marketwire - March 3, 2009) - Kabel Deutschland (KDG), Germany's largest cable network operator and biggest triple play provider, has selected Proxilliant's Cable Access Management System (CAMS) for deployment. The decision by KDG, with nine million customers, follows a successful trial of Proxilliant's CAMS solution in the city of Trier.

CAMS provides comprehensive and continuous information about network and service health while actively improving service quality -- necessary as cable operators look to profitably deliver their advanced services broadly and deeply throughout their networks. CAMS features intelligence deployed deep into the access network that works in concert with sophisticated software in the regional head-end or central data center. The intelligent management of the HFC network and services is uniquely combined with the industry's only managed ingress suppression technology, Proxilliant's patented Dynamic Ingress Blocking™ technology. This deep intelligence allows operators to dramatically reduce their field and network troubleshooting time and costs by pinpointing quickly, while also eliminating the propagation of quality-eroding ingress.

"With Proxilliant's solution, our network performs at new highs of robustness for our broadband Internet, cable TV and phone services," said Wolfgang Teichmann, Vice President Network Engineering at KDG. "The CAMS solution is a critical part of our efforts to deliver unmatched reliability and service quality to our customers."

"As competition intensifies, KDG and other leading cable companies worldwide are taking a proactive approach to service health management to ensure sustainable profitability," said Sonia Khademi, CEO of Proxilliant. "Our solution, deep in the network, delivers improved reliability for all cable services, rapid issue isolation and resolution, and reclamation of bandwidth to increase upstream capacity."
