"Together with Teknovus, we are winning major deployments within our home country and around the world," said Jeremy Ha, CEO of Corecess. "Teknovus's Turbo-EPON provides us with a clear competitive edge, offering 2.5G EPON solutions to service providers supporting MDUs and enterprises, along with their well-known traffic management and packet classification architecture. We look forward to being among the first to test Teknovus's 10G systems by mid-year."
