June 4, 2012

ZÃœRICH, Switzerland, June 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

A leading provider of copper and fiber based network access solutions – has been
selected by one of the main network operators in Italy to deliver nation wide Carrier
Ethernet services on its copper network. Two contracts have been signed for the immediate
roll-out of ULAF+ ACCEED technology.

The ACCEED products will be deployed in two main configurations.

In the point-to-point configuration, an ACCEED link up to 8 bonded copper pairs will
be used to offer increased bit rates over longer distances.

In the IP DSLAM configuration ACCEED Ethernet Demarcation Devices are used with copper
pair bonding up to 4 wire pairs.

To facilitate the migration of legacy services, such as E1 and V.35, to packet
technology, the Italian telecom operator is also deploying circuit emulation technology
from Albis Technologies in the same point-to-point setup.

Key winning factor for selecting Albis Technologies is the leading architecture of
ULAF+ which provides flexibility and uniqueness to integrate various technologies smoothly
in the current network infrastructure:

        - Broad and deep compliancy to MEF and EFM
        - Full MEF and EFM compliant Ethernet demarcation
        - Integration of Ethernet and TDM technology in the same system
        - Facility for remote power and availability of EFM repeaters to extend reach
        - Leading edge QoS and OAM features for high quality services

By integrating the ACCEED technology into the fixed network infrastructure, the
operator obtains an immediate value-add that enables new attractive services to be offered
for the Italian telecommunication market.
