LARGO, Fla. -- Paradyne (NASDAQ:PDYN), a leading provider of triple play broadband loop carriers (BLCs) and Ethernet access equipment, today announced the immediate availability of enhanced CPE for residential markets with its new 6300 family of ADSL2+ modems. With service providers continuing a trend toward multi-service and triple play networks, there is also a need for a highly manageable and reliable residential CPE with flexible in-home networking options. Paradyne is fulfilling this need with a flexible and powerful family of modems, building on the company's already strong market position -- with ADSL2+ CPE shipments reaching one quarter million units since January 2003.

By adding both intelligent management features, in-home networking capabilities, and dual-mode operations that support either ReachDSL or standards-based ADSL2+ from a single CPE, Paradyne is able to satisfy several different deployment profiles from a single device.

"We deploy ADSL2+ where we can, but we have some customers who are on very long loops," said Bruce Hoekstra, Internet Support Services Supervisor from Arvig Communication Systems (ACS). "Paradyne's 6381 modems allow us to provide both ADSL2+ for high bandwidth applications on normal loops and ReachDSL on longer loops -- all from a single box."

Advanced features include an integrated 4-port Ethernet router and/or a WiFi access node to simplify in-home networking, an integrated firewall for security, and enhanced management and diagnostics features such as Dual End Loop Testing (DELT). New CPE sales are often motivated by end-users looking to simplify their in-home networks by upgrading to higher capacity integrated devices. Paradyne's success as a residential CPE manufacturer is due in part to the delivery of all of these options alongside new diagnostics and management capabilities that support multi-service networks of voice, video and data.

"Intelligent ADSL2+ CPE is another example of how Paradyne continues to lead the market with the most advanced access solutions, making deployment easy and cost efficient for our customers," said Teresa Sperry, senior product manager, Paradyne. "Service Providers are now able to get the CPE and BLC/DSLAM from a single source and have only one contact for supply, deployment planning and support."
