Enablence Technologies Integrates & Deploys Trident7 FTTP Access Solution With Servei de Telecommunications d'Andorra

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada - Enablence Technologies ("Enablence" or the "Corporation"), a leading supplier of fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) equipment for residential and business services, recently announced that they have successfully integrated and deployed their Trident7 Universal Access Platform to production customers with Servei de Telecommunications d'Andorra (STA).

STA began formal full-scale production deployment of their new all fiber network with production customers on May 5, 2008, which provides triple-play data, IPTV, and VoIP services. The network will ultimately provide advanced IP services to more than 45,000 residential and business customers throughout Andorra. STA's network will utilize the Enablence Trident7 solution as an overbuild replacement for their legacy DSL network.

"Trident7 provides out-of-the-box support for STA's full suite of all-IP services, and our solution's open northbound interface allowed us to directly integrate with their existing OSS/BSS Systems for ease in deployment" said Emmanuel Vella, Vice-President of Sales & Marketing for Enablence Technologies' FTTx Networks Division. "A big part of providing a superior platform means working with customers to make their envisioned network a reality, and we are dedicated to that ideal," added Vella.

According to Jaume Salvat, Director General and CEO of STA, "The new Trident7 network represents a huge leap forward from the copper network that it replaces. The wealth and depth of advanced services made possible by an all data GE-PON network is unprecedented for our customers, and Enablence's ability to fully integrate their solution quickly into our network has been instrumental to our success."

When asked about Enablence's recent acquisition of Wave7, Mr. Salvat stated that he perceived the acquisition as positive. "The prospects of a full optical and systems level approach to FTTP are very promising. This is an exciting time to be working with Enablence."

"Enablence is delighted to be able to work with STA in deploying their advanced FTTP network. The Trident7 solution is the perfect match for their requirements, and together with STA we are pioneering the deployment of FTTP by European PTTs" added Arvind Chhatbar, CEO of Enablence.
