Allied Telesyn Wins North Dakota Telephone Company Bid; Rural ILEC Will Deploy Allied Telesyn iMAPs, iMGs in $2M FTTH Overbuild.

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Allied Telesyn, a global provider of secure Ethernet/IP access solutions and an industry leader in the deployment of IP Triple Play networks over copper and fiber infrastructure, today announced that its IP Triple Play solution has been chosen by North Dakota Telephone Company (NDTC) for a multi-million dollar FTTx overbuild of its Devils Lake Exchange, which serves more than 3500 subscribers. Products to be deployed by NDTC include the iMAP integrated Multiservice Access Platform, capable of 100 megabit symmetrical service, and iMG intelligent Multiservice Gateways.

NDTC currently uses Allied Telesyn's iMAP and iMG platforms to deliver ADSL2+ internet and telephone services. Phase One of the Devil's Lake overbuild will begin this summer and incorporate approximately 1000 lines. Phases Two and Three are expected to be completed in 2006 and will reach another 2200+ subscribers.

"We knew we wanted an active fiber network and Allied Telesyn had the solution that fit our needs best," says Rich Ellison, NDTC's Network Services Manager. "They had a gateway for any size of deployment: from MDUs, to business, to single homes. They even customized products specifically for our needs."

"We've also been very impressed with Allied's responsiveness and customer service," adds Ellison. "Anything we wanted to see, they brought out and set up for us, and then proved it would work in our design. We've been really pleased with the commitment and the quality of the products they offer."

Says Allied Telesyn's Executive Vice President of Marketing and Product Development Philip Yim, "Allied Telesyn's solution was ideal for NDTC. They knew they needed to upgrade to fiber to stay competitive in their market. The iMAP and iMGs offer NDTC the flexibility not just to match what their competition can offer, but to easily expand that offering in the future without a costly forklift upgrade. Delivery of 100Mb symmetrical service differentiates NDTC from its competitors, and deploying active end-to-end fiber without sharing bandwidth eliminates potential fiber exhaustion. Plus, future services with very high bandwidth requirements can be deployed without complex OSP re-engineering and bandwidth restrictions, which is key for any service provider."

The RUS-accepted iMAP is the industry's most flexible solution for deploying FTTx, ADSL2+ and POTS from a single platform. A secure, carrier-grade, chassis-based access platform with built-in redundancy and QoS, it is built to easily accommodate both an expanding subscriber base and expanding IP voice, video and data application needs.

iMG series Residential Gateways come in a variety of models supporting fiber, ADSL2+, 10/100 and Gigabit Ethernet, VoIP and POTS, as well as RG and serial interfaces. These highly-secure, carrier-grade solutions incorporate options including: Stateful Inspection Firewall, LAN and FXS ports, tagged-based VLAN (IEEE 802.1Q), Layer 2 & Layer 3 QoS, IGMP Snooping & Proxying and PPPoE protocol support, and environmentally hardened chassis options. Zero-touch configuration makes deployment and firmware upgrades simple and virtually maintenance-free.

North Dakota Telephone Company is an ILEC formed in 1993 through the purchase of 15 former GTE exchanges serving 10,000 lines in north central North Dakota. In 1996 they purchased an additional 11 exchanges from US West and currently serve nearly 19,000 lines.
