Nayna Networks Allies With Essentia Group, Expands Italian Presence

Essentia Adds Complete Range of Nayna ExpressSTREAM Broadband Solutions, Targets Residential, Business and Enterprise Applications - Brings Secure Video Transport and Carrier Class Quality of Service (QoS)

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 13, 2006 -- Nayna Networks, Inc., (OTC BB: NAYN), a provider of next generation network solutions, today announced it is working with Essentia S.p.A. of Gruppo Essentia Telecomunicazioni, Italy. Nayna Networks' ExpressSTREAM solutions support both point-to-point and IEEE 802.3ah compliant point-to-multipoint Passive Optical Networking (PON) topologies. Multi-point networks can share a single fiber to greatly reduce infrastructure costs.

Italy is now a hot market for broadband deployments and is playing catch-up after lagging behind other European nations for several years. In-Stat in an October 19, 2005 announcement said, "... video content services will become a leading-edge portion of all premium subscription services offered via the Internet. By 2009, non-adult video content delivered as subscription or pay-per-download over the Internet will have a worldwide retail value of US$2.6 billion."

Empowering Affordable High Definition Video

Nayna raises the quality bar for "carrier class" by adding support for HD quality IP video over Ethernet to the more common voice and data streams. "ExpressSTREAM is the most robust EPON access solution we have found that can deliver sustained IP video streams on a converged network in a flexible combination of Point-to-Point and Multi-point topologies," said Mr. Andrea Tarasconi, CEO, Essentia. "Nayna Networks' ExpressSTREAM solutions deliver today what other vendors only promise on their roadmaps."

ExpressSTREAM solutions deliver high performance, security, reliability and scalability at an affordable cost structure, yet they are simple enough to install quickly. "Fiber is the media of choice today and tomorrow for delivering Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), streaming content and high-speed Internet access," noted Naveen Bisht, president and CEO, Nayna Networks, Inc. "We have found that native Ethernet solutions offer a unique combination between what subscribers demand in performance and what service providers require for their Return On Investment (ROI)."
