OAKLAND, Calif. -- Zhone Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZHNE), a global leader in FTTx network access solutions, today announced the deployment of over 2,000 MXK™ multi-service access node (MSAN) platforms across the globe. Zhone has increasingly focused its development, sales and marketing efforts on the fast-growing Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON), Active Ethernet (AE) and Very high bit rate Digital Subscriber Line (VDSL2) markets to augment consumer and business services globally. In July 2011, MXK also reached a significant milestone of being deployed with over 150 service providers in over 40 countries.

“Zhone is a top 5 global player in the emerging FTTH category, based on our analysis of the market,” said David Emberley, research manager of telecommunication infrastructure at IDC. “The strength of Zhone’s position in the global FTTx market is due in large part to its robust product portfolio and targeted focus on access technologies. As a pure-play, Zhone faces tremendous competitive pressure from significantly larger vendors. Zhone's continued technology enhancements and its global customer diversity have enabled it to grow its FTTx deployments significantly in 2010 and 2011. The broadband access market is poised for an upgrade from copper based infrastructure to deep fiber and fiber to the home and Zhone stands to gain further if it can execute its go-to-market strategy."
