First Customer Shipments of 10G iMAP Modules Demonstrate Continued Commitment and Industry Leadership in the Telco IP Services Field

Allied Telesyn, a global provider of secure Ethernet/IP access solutions and an industry leader in the deployment of IP Triple Play networks over copper and fiber access infrastructures, today announced that its award-winning iMAP integrated Multiservice Access Platform is now available with 10G Ethernet network transport. This makes the iMAP the only true IP multiservice platform that consolidates Metro access, aggregation and protected transport in one device capable of offering last mile service flexibility, backhaul scalability, service robustness and investment protection.

With high penetration of Broadband DSL and next-generation access technologies such as Fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) and VDSL2, there is an ever-increasing demand to backhaul bandwidth-intensive services and applications over a scalable, secure and affordable technology such as 10 Gigabit Ethernet. Building this capability in to the Allied Telesyn platform positions the iMAP as a powerful alternative to SONET/SDH networks in the transport layer of operators' networks and a resilient high capacity aggregation device for IP Triple Play services traffic.

The RUS-listed iMAP integrated Multiservice Access Platform is a NEBS-certified, environmentally-hardened access solution that delivers carrier-class next-generation and traditional telco services over IP. Available since 2003 and now powering over 100,000 IP Triple Play ports, the iMAP is a world-class last mile and Ethernet transport solution providing high density modules for POTS, xDSL, T1/E1, Ethernet, active fiber, GEPON FTTx technologies and now 10G backhaul. Recently voted the #1 OSP IP DSLAM by Heavy Reading (IP DSLAMs: Heavy Reading's Competitive Report. August 2005), Allied Telesyn's iMAP offers unmatched system flexibility through the ability to "mix and match" different networking technologies within the same platform.

"The iMAP is the world's first IP multiservice platform capable of supporting interfaces ranging from POTS to 10G," said Philip Yim, executive vice president of global marketing & product development. "With its support of advanced carrier-grade network resilience and protection capabilities such as EPSR, a 10G enabled iMAP delivers cost-effective, fault tolerant packet-based protected transport for converged networks based on IP/MPLS cores."
