MINNEAPOLIS -- ADC (NASDAQ:ADCT) (www.adc.com) today announced that Open Access, a metropolitan area network provider, is deploying ADC's LoopStar(R) 1600 and 810 SONET transmission and access systems to provide TDM services to mobile carrier customers in the Long Island and New York City area.

The Open Access optical network provides advanced TDM and Ethernet services and is designed for major enterprises and government entities that require flexible bandwidth to manage future growth. In designing their fiber network, Open Access paid particular attention to performance, reliability and flexibility in order to provide customers with TDM and Ethernet services on a level with those available in other major East Coast metropolitan centers. Towards that end, Open Access selected ADC's LoopStar 1600 and 810 SONET transmission and access systems to provide an economical way for them to capitalize on TDM opportunities from mobile carriers in their metro area, while providing a core infrastructure that supports both TDM and Ethernet services.

"We selected ADC's LoopStar platform for our optical network because it is a cost-effective and scalable TDM delivery solution that best fits our business model and the needs of our business customers," said Robert Mavretich, president and co-founder of Open Access. "The LoopStar 1600 and 810 provide a broad array of capabilities and options that will help us efficiently deliver TDM services to our mobile carrier customers with maximum performance and flexibility and at minimal cost."

To take advantage of opportunities for generating new revenue in their fast-growing markets, mobile carriers are increasing their backhaul spending on technologies that take advantage of the TDM network topology - a trend that will continue for the foreseeable future. Mobile carriers can gain faster time to market and far greater market penetration using TDM rather than an all-packet network.

"We are excited to support the Open Access network that is providing an array of TDM services; all delivered with the performance, reliability, and flexibility that meets the business requirements of Open Access customers," said Hilton Nicholson, president of the Active Infrastructure Business Unit for ADC. "Our LoopStar transmission and access systems allow service providers like Open Access to cost-effectively transport, and manage TDM services to end-user customers from a single platform. With ADC's LoopStar 1600 and 810 systems, Open Access empowers mobile carriers to generate new revenue quickly, efficiently, and affordably."
