OAKLAND, Calif. -- Zhone Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: ZHNE), the first company dedicated to building total-delivery solutions for voice, data and video content services worldwide, today announced that Lansing, Michigan-based Arialink has selected its new MALC 100 Multi-Access Line Concentrator (MALC™) product. As Lansing's leader in Internet and telecommunication connectivity, Arialink selected Zhone's MALC 100 to deploy triple-play bundle packages of phone, cable TV and high-speed Internet. Zhone's new MALC 100 follows the company's market-leading MALC and Raptor products, which have been widely deployed by leading service providers around the world.

"Triple-play bundle packages allow residents to have high-quality services and provides low costs by bundling the service for a price that is less than the price of individual services," said Tim Lebel, Arialink Broadband's vice president of operations in Lansing, Michigan.

With support for both 48 POTS and ADSL2+ ports in a 1U chassis, Zhone's versatile MALC 100 allows service providers to bundle packages throughout their serving areas. And because of its compact size, the environmentally hardened MALC 100 can be deployed in central offices, remote terminals or subtended from existing cabinets.

"Service providers are turning to broadband loop carriers to deliver triple-play services. By simultaneously addressing the need for bandwidth, reach and interoperability, the MALC 100 allows Arialink to provide cost-effective voice, data and video services to its valued customers." said David Markowitz, vice president of marketing at Zhone. "As the newest member of Zhone's family of market-leading broadband loop carriers, the MALC 100 gives Zhone the most comprehensive set of BLC solutions in the industry."
