Zhone is a top 5 global player in the emerging FTTH
category, based on our analysis of the market,” said David Emberley, research
manager of telecommunication infrastructure at IDC.

market is due in large part to its robust product portfolio and targeted focus
on access technologies. As a pure-play, Zhone faces tremendous competitive
pressure from significantly larger vendors.


Zhone’s continued technology enhancements and its global
customer diversity have enabled it to grow its FTTx deployments significantly
in 2010 and 2011. The broadband access market is poised for an upgrade from
copper based infrastructure to deep fiber and fiber to the home and Zhone

capabilities translates into ongoing expansion of its customer base across the
Middle East, Central and Latin America (CALA), Europe and North America


Zhone’s status in the global fiber-to-the-home (FTTH)
market demonstrates the value that service providers place on the company’s
ability to consistently deliver high-quality, high-performance single line
multi-service (SLMS)-based multi-service access solutions.


The MXK, zNID GPON and AE Optical Network Terminals
(ONTs), Zhone Management System (ZMS) and Zhone EZ Touch Provisioning system
offer a powerful combination of customizable solutions for our customers to
expand network reach and service offerings in response to rapidly changing user
demands,” said Brian Caskey, chief marketing officer at Zhone.


IP Zhone, Zhone FiberHome and Zhone FiberCell solution

Ethernet investments long-term and design a cost-effective, scalable and
future-proof network.


Zhone FiberHome portfolio of products and solutions,
including the MXK platform, fulfills the network requirements of both
international and domestic customers’ broadband expansion efforts for
residential and business users and the growing opportunity in the mobile
backhaul market provide ongoing opportunities for Zhone to further deploy the
