PORTSMOUTH, N.H. -- Pannaway Technologies, Inc., designers and developers of next-generation, converged broadband systems to telecommunications companies, today announced that National Telecommunications Cooperative Association (NTCA) (, has named its Broadband Access Manager (BAM(TM)), the NTCA EXPO '06, HOT Technologies first-place award winner. The HOT Technologies award is presented each year to the EXPO participant displaying the most innovative technology that has been launched or significantly improved in the past year. NTCA is the premiere non-profit association representing more than 560 small and rural telephone cooperatives and commercial companies.

BAM is a key component of Pannaway's widely deployed Service Convergence Network (SCN(TM)) platform, a highly scaleable and easy-to-deploy IP packet access system that enables rural Incumbent Local Exchange Carriers (ILEC) to deliver new, revenue generating broadband services.

"We are honored that NTCA has selected BAM for this prestigious award," said Kevin Brown, Vice President of Marketing for Pannaway.

We've added many new capabilities over the past year based on customer feedback and we're pleased to be recognized for our hard work by a reputable organization such as NTCA."

BAM capabilities include, automated line diagnostics and troubleshooting (SELT/DELT); automated subscriber provisioning; bulk firmware upgrades and remote network trouble-shooting.

HOT Technology '06 award candidates were judged by a committee of eight general managers from NTCA member telcos. Award selection criteria included: level of innovation, product usefulness, significance of improvement, relevance in the rural market place and creativity of display at the EXPO. Pannaway earned first place honors for presenting an effective display that best illustrated their innovative BAM technology.

"Loop qualification, service configuration, provisioning and other tedious operational chores are now automated, minimizing the complexity of our broadband service rollouts."
