"Our first quarter results are consistent with our guidance and reflect our ongoing transition to the rapidly-emerging BRAS market. This transition has accelerated in recent months, as evidenced by our strategic agreement with Ericsson, our entry into the Asia-Pacific market, and our first PTT lab trial in the Asia-Pacific region," said Rick Gilbert, Chairman and CEO of Copper Mountain Networks. "In parallel, our RFP response team has been extremely busy since the beginning of the year. The BRAS market has continued to gain momentum, with several large carrier BRAS RFPs reaching the proposal submission stage within the past three months. Our product maturity, price/performance, and unique suite of networking and management capabilities are very well-suited to these projects, and we are optimistic about our ability to compete for this business."
