Italian operator expands bandwidth and availability of advanced applications with reliable solution from Zhone
Oakland, CA — March 15, 2012 — Zhone Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZHNE), a global leader in FTTx network access solutions, today announced a new multiple access line concentrator deployment with Convergenze S.p.A., the leading regional operator in southern Italy. Convergenze is offering affordable and reliable VoIP and high speed ADSL2+ Internet access services to its customers in southern Italy. By utilizing Zhone's market-leading multiple access line concentrator, Convergenze has been able to increase network bandwidth and reach, lower service delivery cost and provide advanced services to its customers. "Zhone's solutions give us a high level of flexibility in both our service and system configuration options," said Ing. Rosario Pingaro, president of Convergenze S.p.A. "With this advanced capability, we are now able to efficiently deliver high-quality advanced services that will elevate our competitive position and accelerate our growth strategy. The future-proof Zhone portfolio of products – along with additional support from Dimension Data (www.dimensiondata.com) – helps us extend our reach with our customers, and gives us the option of adopting technologies such as GPON and Active Ethernet, as demand dictates."
Convergenze deployed Zhone's multiple access line concentrator as its multi-service access solution for business VoIP and high speed Ethernet-over-copper services for area businesses and residents. A primary reason Convergenze chose the Zhone solution was its ability to provide multiple services on a single platform, with the option of expanding to Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) in the future.
"Our latest international deployment increases our rapidly expanding customer base in Europe and attests to our growing relationship with Convergenze, one that began in 2010," said Brian Caskey, chief marketing officer of Zhone. " The featured flexibility of the multiple access line concentrator serves just the purpose Convergenze needs – to provide networking capabilities today with opportunities open for tomorrow."
