August 2, 2004 Holmdel, NJ -- Amedia Networks, a design and development company of Ethernet broadband solutions for the communications industry, today announced that it has expanded its technology licensing agreement with Lucent Technologies. Lucent has also delivered to Amedia Networks several Bell Labs-developed technology designs for Amedia Networks' PG1000 (Premises Gateway) and the AS5000 (Aggregator Switch).

Amedia Networks PG1000 and AS5000 are designed to industry Ethernet standards and are engineered to interface with existing Ethernet equipment. Amedia Networks gateway and switch can be installed in existing networks in global markets, thus providing an end-to-end fiber-to-the-premise (FTTP) solution. Both products can be ordered now and are expected to be generally available in the fourth quarter of 2004.

As Amedia Networks continues to develop Ethernet and IP technologies for the broadband access market, it is expanding development work for additional enhancement features for all its products. In support of this ongoing strategy, Amedia Networks has entered into a supplemental agreement with Lucent, who will provide additional technology designs for further product enhancements for the PG1000 and AS5000. This work is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2004.

The enhanced design of Amedia Networks CS1200 Core Switch includes new features to broaden its market applications, design improvements to significantly reduce its production cost, and the addition of a suite of software features to improve traffic management and security. This work is expected to be completed early in 2005.
