PETALUMA, Calif. -- Teknovus, the leading provider of Gigabit Ethernet Optical Network (G-EPON) chips for the deployment of triple-play services in FTTH (Fiber To The Home) and FTTB (Fiber To the Business) broadband access networks announced that Fiberhome's FTTH system is being used as a benchmark for testing and deployment by China Telecom. Fiberhome is a leading provider of FTTH solutions throughout China and has designed their winning solution based on Teknovus' chipsets.

Fiberhome is one of Teknovus' leading customers in China. China Telecom's selection of the Fiberhome FTTH system requires other vendors participating in the testing to benchmark their systems against Fiberhome's superb performance results. Fiberhome's FTTH system, based on Teknovus' IPTV-enabled triple-play architecture, ensures QoS (Quality of Service) per application per user. Teknovus' ONU (Optical Network Unit - the Customer Premises Equipment) requires around 2 Watts of power, providing the lowest-energy usage of any available solution. For China Telecom, power savings is crucial as the country deploys fiber-based broadband communications nationwide.

"Fiberhome is our first EPON vendor in China to have secured major deployments throughout the country,"stated Greg Caltabiano, President & CEO of Teknovus. "We are delighted that China Telecom chose Fiberhome as a benchmark for system vendors in this test process. Fiberhome has deployed their solutions in every province in China. We are experiencing fast acceleration in our customer deployments throughout Asia."

China publicly announced their intention to go with EPON for FTTH networks. "We believe PON will be so important that FTTH will stand for 'Fiber Takes over the Home',"said Chungcheng Fan, Vice Director, China Institute of Communications, speaking at OFC in March. "EPON will be the winner," he continued.
