Vyyo to Showcase Benefits for Cable Operators of Ultraband Platform, Enhanced T1 Solution

NORCROSS, Ga., May 4 - Vyyo Inc. (NASDAQ:VYYO), a supplier of broadband access equipment for cable system operators, will be showcasing solutions designed to help the cable industry deliver new residential and business services at the NCTA Cable Show May 7-9 in Las Vegas.

Vyyo, which has announced relationships with Cox Communications and StarHub in recent months, will be showing its full UltraBand(TM) platform for 3GHz Spectrum Overlay in its booth (#4679) at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. In addition, Vyyo will be demonstrating enhancements to its T1 over coax solution that dramatically expands the ability of operators to deliver T1 services via HFC plant.

"Our industry today faces a smorgasbord of opportunities to generate new revenue and sharpen our competitive edge," said Wayne Davis, CEO of Vyyo. "In our discussions with cable system operators, they have expressed increased interest in platforms like ours that can accelerate deployment of T1 and DOCSIS 3.0 service, Ethernet, multicasting, IPTV and expansive, 100-channel high-definition lineups."

Leveraging cable's existing investment in HFC plant, the Vyyo UltraBand(TM) platform enables operators to meet current and future bandwidth demands today, to capitalize on the lucrative commercial and residential services markets. At The Cable Show, Vyyo will be showing both the full UltraBand(TM) platform as well as UltraBand(TM) 3GHz passives that can be installed in today's networks to provide cost-effective insurance for the downstream and upstream bandwidth demands of the future. A Vyyo whitepaper available at the show discusses how the UltraBand(TM) platform can be deployed for 40% percent of the cost of a 1 GHz/midsplit configuration, the only other architecture that enables fiber-like upstream and downstream performance over existing HFC plant.

Vyyo also will be demonstrating the XMTS-TE, an enhanced version of its T1 over coax broadband hub that supports both SONET- and IP-based transport and eliminates the need for operators to deploy TDM/SONET backbones for business services. Used in conjunction with the V510 TDM/Ethernet Gateway, the XMTS-TE uses innovative technology to encapsulate the T1 circuits into Ethernet frames, allowing for transport over metro or regional Ethernet networks and thereby eliminating the need for operators to deploy TDM/SONET backbones for business services.

The Vyyo T1 solution scales in a manner that mirrors the simplicity and cost effectiveness of cable's proven HSD deployment model: The XMTS-TE is a headend-based T1 CMTS that communicates with self-installable T1 modems at the business customer's premise, allowing operators to tap into the long-term, high-ARPU potential of business services.
