March 22, 2004 Hanover, Germany-- DIATEM Networks Inc., the developer of real-time service control systems for metro Ethernet networks, announced today that it is conducting live demonstrations of its Ethernet service control capabilities over an international broadband network at the CeBiT trade fair held here. The demonstrations are taking place from the Industry Canada pavilion hall 11, stand B11, for the duration of the event.

The demonstration showcases the dynamic control of connectivity and classes of service (CoS) over the National Capital Institute of Telecommunications (NCIT) net in Ottawa, Canada, an advanced research and production network based on Ethernet-over-DWDM technology. The applications used in the demonstration are video-conferencing and video-on-demand where multiple video streams compete for bandwidth with 100% best-effort traffic.

The demonstrations prove that, in a network environment the delivery of services with guaranteed quality of service (QoS) parameters is feasible only in the presence of a service control platform. The demonstration further illustrates how service providers and network operators can leverage services control systems to effectively deliver advanced optical Ethernet services over existing data networks.

DIATEM, in conjunction with the Ottawa-based NCIT, was one of only a handful of companies selected by Industry Canada to participate in this years CeBiT event. "DIATEM's leading edge technology is an excellent example of how Canada is leading the world in telecommunications innovation," says Marie Bernard Meunier, Canadian ambassador in Germany. "We are proud to showcase their accomplishments on this world stage."
