TXP Launches New Family of GPON Mini-ONTs

RICHARDSON, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 1, 2007 -- TXP Corporation (OTCBB: TXPO), an Original Design Manufacturer (ODM) of ITU standard GPON Optical Network Terminals (ONTs), today announced the launch of a new 7200G family of mini-size, Power over Ethernet based GPON ONTs to telecom service providers worldwide.

The mini size and ease of installation of these new ONTs makes them well-suited for operators deploying FTTP in multi dwelling and single living units that are limited in space. The new models can be mounted indoors and require no tools to install. Their mini size makes them less intrusive since they are only one quarter the size of current generation GPON ONTs. This compact packaging, coupled with the benefits of remote powering with Power over Ethernet, translates into lower cost and ease of installation for service providers.

Today's announcement adds to TXP's industry-leading iPhotonics® family of fully interoperable, ITU standards compliant GPON ONTs which are currently being deployed and are in GPON trials worldwide.

The 7200G ONTs provide operators an extremely cost effective solution to deliver up to 1000Mb/s of bandwidth to end users in a compact and simple to install package. The new line of ONTs initially provide a single Gigabit Ethernet port that supports Triple-Play IP-based services, including high-speed Internet, Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) and Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP). Multiple-port ONT models will be brought to the market over the next few months.

"Our new mini-size ONTs add to our growing family of ONT products for single family homes, multi-family dwellings, and businesses, for both indoor and outdoor installations," commented Michael C. Shores, President and CEO of TXP Corporation. "We believe the addition of the 7200G line of ONTs strengthens the full range of capabilities that we offer and is perfectly timed with the accelerating worldwide roll-out of new 'fiber-to-home' infrastructures needed to deliver 'triple-play' services."
