FEBRUARY 11, 2010 -- Enablence Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: ENA) says it is supplying TRIDENT7 FTTx equipment to Grupo Cable Sula of Honduras for a new fiber-based broadband network for its business customers.

Grupo Cable Sula is the second-largest cable operator in Honduras, according to Enablence, providing services to cable subscribers and Internet and telephone users in the city of San Pedro Sula. In 2000, it expanded its services into the telecommunications market to deliver Internet, data, telephone, and CATV.

Under the name FiberLink Pymes, Grupo Cable Sula is rolling out to small- and medium-sized businesses new value-added service packages at an aggressive price, which will include Internet at speeds of up to 10 mbps, two dedicated phone lines, optional analog or digital TV service and a corporate data link at speeds of up to 100 Mbps. To support this deployment, Grupo Cable Sula purchased Enablence’s flagship TRIDENT7 Universal Access Platform, optical line terminal, optical networking terminals, and the Element Management Suite. Cable Sula plans to serve more than 5,000 business customers over the next two to three years on this fiber-to-the-business network.

“Our business customers needed high-bandwidth Internet and data services at a reasonable cost,” said Jorge Canahuati Hoch, CEO of Grupo Cable Sula. “Only Enablence’s proven FTTx platform provided the right combination of features and affordability to deliver what our customers require. The TRIDENT7 has allowed us to leap past our competitors and capture an untapped market opportunity with a fiber network that is far more secure, reliable, and faster than cable modem, DSL, or wireless. Deploying this kind of network gives us a leadership position in the Central American telecommunications industry.”
