TXP to Demonstrate New Family of GPON ONTs at ITU-T GPON Interop Showcase During NXTcomm 2007

RICHARDSON, TX--(Marketwire - June 13, 2007) - TXP Corporation (OTCBB: TXPO), a leading provider of GPON ONT solutions for the telecommunications industry, announces it will demonstrate interoperability of their family of GPON ONTs with three different vendors' OLTs as part of the ITU-T's GPON Interoperability Showcase at NXTcomm 2007, booth 7408.

At the forefront of industry efforts to achieve GPON interoperability, TXP provides a family of fully interoperable, ITU standards-compliant ONTs that are currently being deployed in GPON trials and first office applications worldwide.

Attendees visiting the ITU pavilion during NXTcomm will have the opportunity to see TXP's GPON ONTs in live interop demonstrations with OLTs from Tellabs, Hitachi and ZTE. Supporting open industry standards, TXP's newest GPON ONTs are capable of successfully interoperating with multiple ONTs right out of the box.

"Achieving industry wide ONT interoperability with GPON OLTs from different vendors is one of the biggest factors in driving down FTTP equipment costs for ILECs. Full interoperability means ONTs can be produced with the economies of scale required for ILECs to deliver fiber-based services profitably to end customers," commented Michael C. Shores, President and CEO of TXP Corporation. Shores adds, "Together with our upcoming announcement on new methods for customer powering of our ONTs, we expect our ONTs to lead the industry in lowest overall deployment cost."
