OAKLAND, Calif. -- Zhone Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:ZHNE - News), the first company dedicated solely to delivering the full spectrum of next-generation access and transport infrastructure equipment, today announced the availability of its new Raptor 100 DSLAM. This new compact Raptor 100 provides next-generation DSLAM features, with support for ADSL2+ and a broader array of Ethernet uplink options. The small footprint makes the new Raptor 100 ideally suited for central office, remote terminal and subtended deployments from existing cabinets.

The new Raptor 100 supports ADSL2+ to achieve additional bandwidth and reach while simultaneously preserving investment in previous ADSL CPE already deployed. This new technology is capable of delivering downstream data rate services up to 24 Mbps and upstream data rates ranging up to 3 Mbps. Subscribers beyond the standard serving area also benefit from extended reach capabilities creating new revenue generating opportunities as carriers are able to capture new broadband subscribers and deliver new bundled services including switched digital video. By simultaneously addressing the need for bandwidth, reach and interoperability, Zhone is enabling operators to more cost effectively provide and deploy cost-effective multi-service networks.

"The delivery of triple-play video, data and VoIP services is predicated on bandwidth," said Steve Rogers, vice president of product management at Zhone. "Achieving sufficient bandwidth requires cost-effectively shortening copper loop lengths by moving DSLAMs closer to the subscriber. By offering the broadest range of line counts along with optional waterproof enclosures, local or line-powering and subtending capabilities, the Raptor family of DSLAMs cost-effectively minimizes loop lengths, eliminating both technical and economic barriers to delivering profitable triple-play services."
