UTStarcom Unveils Updated Packet Transport Network Portfolio

ALAMEDA, Calif., Oct 30, 2009 / / - UTStarcom, Inc. (Nasdaq: UTSI) announced today the debut of its expanded NetRing(TM) Transport Network product portfolio (NetRing(TM) TN), which includes new multiprotocol label switching - transport profile (MPLS-TP) solutions specifically designed to overhaul existing mobile backhaul networks, provide Ethernet services and deliver broadband aggregation applications.

"Packet transport networks (PTN) are an emerging segment of the overall optical transport market that can specifically address the evolution of new enterprise services and the subsequent challenges of packet traffic growth, increased bandwidth pressure and the need to improve ARPU," said Peter Blackmore, CEO and president of UTStarcom. "UTStarcom has invested in the development of this expanded TN portfolio to ensure our customers have an effective migration path to PTN. We are confident that this portfolio will deliver that long-term."

UTStarcom's NetRing(TM) TN packet-based optical transport system is based on the latest MPLS-TP technology pre-standard being jointly defined by ITU-T and IETF. It is highly flexible, reliable, scalable and cost-effective and can be deployed for key applications such as carrier mobile backhaul, metro Ethernet services for enterprise and digital subscriber line access multiplexer (DSLAM) and X-version of passive optical network (xPON) aggregation. It is capable of carrying time division multiplexing (TDM), asynchronous transfer mode (ATM), synchronous digital hierarchy/synchronous optical network (SDH/SONET) and Ethernet seamlessly over a reliable and scalable network, with resiliency at par with TDM networks. It also enables legacy enterprise services over Ethernet, providing 'wholesale' connectivity and an alternative for leased lines.
