OTTAWA -- Enablence Technologies (TSX VENTURE: ENA), ("Enablence" or the "Corporation") a leading supplier of fiber-to-the-premise (FTTP) equipment for residential and business services, today announced the installation of its proprietary Trident7(TM) Universal Access Platform for the fiber-to-the-business (FTTB) networks within the Taiwan Optical Platform Group (TOP) service areas in central Taiwan.

TOP's service areas cover more than 600,000 homes passed in the major cities of central Taiwan. The company's first deployment of a FTTx network will employ Enablence Technologies' Trident7 IEEE 802.3 GE-PON (EFM PON) standard Compact OLT (COLT) platform to offer triple-play services for residential and business customers in apartment and office buildings. The targeted service area will be more than 300 buildings with 20-60 subscribers in each building.

The Trident7 COLT platform fits perfectly with TOP's FTTx deployment model due to the unique ONT ("Optical Network Terminal") Port Extension capability, which provides for cost-effective modular expansion of in-building network. After a field trial amongst multiple system vendors, the Trident7 was selected for its system performance, network stability, and superior technical support.

"We are thrilled to be working with TOP through our system-integration partner in Taiwan, Hiway Broadband Co., Ltd. in Taiwan. This project illustrates how the Trident7 platform is gaining traction not only in the U.S., but also internationally," said Arvind Chhatbar, CEO of Enablence. In this deployment TOP will roll-out Enablence's ONTs with its own PLC transceiver units. "This is a key milestone for Enablence as we integrate our components into its FTTx Network Division Products," added Chhatbar.
