Telco Easily Deploys Enhanced Services and Experiences Immediate Operational Expense Reductions

PORTSMOUTH, NH–(EMWNews – July 29, 2008) – *Pannaway Networks, designers and developers

of next-generation Ethernet/IP Multi-Service Access Platforms for

telecommunications service providers, announced today that Union

Communications, a New Hampshire-based Independent Local Exchange Carrier

(ILEC) serving 7,000 rural subscribers, has selected its carrier grade,

high-density Multi-Service Access Platform (MSAP) — the MAGNM-20. Union

Communications, a 2007 Lightwave Magazine FTTXcellence Award winner for

fiber innovation, is implementing the

MAGNM-20 for Active

P2P FTTH as it upgrades its existing copper network, giving subscribers

more robust and reliable access to high-bandwidth triple-play services

including IPTV.

“I can easily see the need for a 30-Mbit broadband connection in the

relatively near future as our subscribers begin to stream more video

content off the Internet,” said Ron Troyer, plant manager for Union

Communications. “Fiber-to-the-home is clearly the best solution for our

current and future needs and Pannaway’s MAGNM-20 is our platform of choice.

Our MAGNM-20 installed easily and has enabled us to see an immediate

improvement in performance.”

Union Communications has been deploying Pannaway’s BAS™ (Broadband Access Switch) and

BAM™ (Broadband Access Manager), all of which are key components of the

company’s Ethernet/IP-based SCN™ (Service

Convergence Network) architecture.

“Based on our positive past experience with Pannaway products and service,

our selection of the MAGNM-20 platform for this pivotal fiber rollout was

an easy decision. MAGNM-20 has the scalability we need for our larger

exchanges, and can be managed and provisioned by Pannaway’s BAM, which is

clearly the easiest and most intuitive broadband management system we’ve

ever used,” explains Troyer.

“Innovators like Union Communications understand completely that video,

gaming and music downloads are going to drive the need for a higher

bandwidth services platform,” said Mark A. Carpenter, president of Pannaway

Networks. “We’re pleased to be selected as Union Communications’ strategic

partner for such an important initiative.”

About The MAGNM-20

In one integrated system, MAGNM-20 cost-effectively scales to support a

wide range of access technologies ranging from legacy T1 and POTS to

ADSL2+, GPON, and Active Point-to-Point, Ethernet subscriber connections.

Additionally, MAGNM-20 is architected with a pure Ethernet/IP core and

boasts an industry-leading 922 Gigabit per second backplane. These unique

and powerful attributes provide telcos like Union Communications with the

flexibility to adapt to the evolving broadband services market.
