RICHARDSON, Texas -- TXP Corporation(OTCBB: TXPO),an Original Design Manufacturer (ODM) for the telecommunications industry, announced today it has partnered with ADTRAN (Nasdaq: ADTN), a leading global provider of networking and communications equipment, to supply Optical Network Terminal (ONT) products and outside plant cabinet retrofit solutions.

Under the agreement, TXP will augment ADTRAN's GPON offering with ONTs designed for multiple targeted applications. Additionally, TXP will supply a customized family of its outside plant cabinet retrofit kits to support the deployment of ADTRAN's Total Access 5006, a carrier class multi-service access and aggregation platform. TXP's retrofit kits enable ADTRAN to cost effectively upgrade local access infrastructures for its customers by retrofitting existing outside plant cabinets with its new Total Access 5006 access systems.

Michael C. Shores, President and CEO of TXP Corporation, stated, "We are excited about our new relationship with ADTRAN, which further validates our strategy to become a leading ODM supplier of telecom technology. Our ONTs are already interoperable with most of the leading Optical Line Terminal (OLT) OEMs and our quick-turn capabilities enable us to launch products for our partners even faster and more cost effectively than traditional providers. We expect ADTRAN will be a major supplier of indoor ONT-based MDU solutions, and believe we are ideally positioned to benefit from the rapid growth in new "fiber-to-the-home" services. Moreover, our first retrofit designs for ADTRAN are now complete and we expect our first kits will start shipping mid month. Overall, our retrofits combined with our ONTs significantly enhance ADTRAN's ability to service last mile applications."
