Occam Networks Unveils New BLC 6012i High Capacity Chassis Featuring Unique Interconnect Architecture.

New Chassis Incorporates Multiple Design Advancements and Provides Unprecedented Flexibility

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -- Occam Networks[R], Inc. (NASDAQ: OCNW), a leading broadband access supplier offering multiservice access platform (MSAP) solutions based on pure packet technologies, announced today the availability of its new BLC 6012i High Capacity Chassis. This new product improves and simplifies installation, reduces turn up time and integrates Occam's Intelligent Blade Interconnect Architecture connections into its backplane.

The new BLC 6012i incorporates various design advancements that provide a new level of integration and simplicity for service providers. Holding up to 12 BLC 6000 blades, service providers can deploy any current model blade, in any slot and in any configuration while supporting up to 1536 subscribers depending on the mix of blades used. Further, eliminating the need for Ethernet backplane connections, Occam's design for the BLC 6012i takes advantage of Occam's innovative distributed intelligence to minimize blade and system level configurations. The 6012i chassis integrates cabling on the backplane of the chassis for added reliability and service integrity. The chassis includes 20 Ethernet ports located on the rear of the unit. This design enables service providers to scale their networks in a simpler, more intelligent manner.

"The BLC 6012i integrates several important advances that help service providers improve the reliability of their networks as well as scale their networks more easily," said Juan Vela, Director of Solutions Marketing and Strategy at Occam Networks. "Additionally, the distributed intelligence architecture that is featured in this new product offers service providers the simplicity and ease-of-use that characterizes Occam's complete Broadband Loop Carrier system."

Occam's distributed intelligence architecture features sophisticated BLC blades capable of either standalone or system level operation. Utilizing Occam's Intelligent Blade Interconnect Architecture (IBIA) for interblade connectivity, distributed intelligence is a system approach that achieves unparalleled flexibility and distributed traffic processing eliminating the cost of common equipment. The 6012i chassis integrates the IBIA Ethernet connections into the backplane for simplified operation, increased quality and faster time to revenue. Enabled by OccamOS versions 5.5 or later, when a service provider inserts a BLC blade into the BLC 6012i chassis, the blade auto-discovers the chassis type and slot location, as well as auto-configures IBIA connectivity within the chassis.
