Japan's UCOM, Ikanos team to enable 100-Mbit/sec symmetric service

July 7, 2005 Fremont, CA -- Ikanos Communications has announced that UCOM, a subsidiary of Japan's USEN Group, will deploy 100-Mbit/sec services based on Ikanos' Fx 100100 chipsets. Designed for FTTX and multi-dwelling unit (MDU) applications, Ikanos says its symmetrical 100-Mbit/sec chipset will enable UCOM's customers to take advantage of interactive applications such as streaming video and interactive gaming.

"As the leader in the FTTX market for MDUs, UCOM is delighted to be the first carrier to offer symmetrical 100-Mbit/sec services to customers in both their homes and offices," remarks Toru Suzuki, President of UCOM. "Ikanos' Fx 100100 chipset has enabled USEN to maintain its leadership by introducing new interactive broadband applications to consumers in Japan."

Ikanos says its Fx 100100 device is designed for use in optical network units (ONUs) and optical line terminals (OLTs), while its Fx 100100S-4 device is designed for subscriber located equipment (SLE) and optical network terminals (ONTs). Both products are part of the company's Fx family of chipsets, which are designed to allow interactive services to be delivered by virtually any carrier worldwide, according to the company. The company says its Fx 100100, the latest addition to the company's line of fiber-extension products, is the among the first programmable silicon devices to provide symmetrical speeds up to 100 Mbit/sec.

"There is increasing demand for carriers to offer high-bandwidth services to customers," concludes Dean Grumlose, vice president of marketing at Ikanos. "We are pleased to work with a market leader such as UCOM, who is moving quickly to offer innovative services to their growing customer base."
