December 20, 2004 Tokyo, Japan -- PacketFront, a broadband infrastructure provider of open access fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) technology, has announced that it has joined with NEO Index Corp. and Soliton Systems KK to build the broadband network for the Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Chinzan-so, Japan. The fully automated network will be based on PacketFront's Intelligent Broadband Solution and will offer 300 hotel rooms and conference facilities a selection of "triple-play" broadband services -- TV/video-on-demand, telephony, and data.

Soliton Systems KK has built and is operating the network, while NEO Index Corp. offers the services to the hotel. NEO Index Corp. provides hardware and software of multimedia telecommunications system.

The network enables the Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Chinzan-so to offer guests the opportunity to search and choose services by a simple remote control operation and self registration. A selection of over 5,000 titles from major Hollywood studios, as well as Japanese films, can be viewed on large-size LCD television screens in every room. In addition, Internet services with public IP addresses as an option, in-building LAN services for conference guests, and multicast TV channels like Nikelodeon and VMC, are offered.

Representatives from the Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Chinzan-so said that one of their main reasons for choosing this approach was the companies' ability to support triple-play services with regard to specific challenges like end-to-end quality of service, multicast capabilities, security functionality, and interactive self-registration capabilities. Ultimately this will give their guests a broad variety of services to choose from while they can increase their revenues and at the same keep control of operational costs.

The key component of PacketFront's Intelligent Broadband Solution is BECS, a service control and provisioning system. BECS enables operators to build and manage fully automated broadband networks with on-demand, self-provisioning functionality. This gives users the ability to increase capacity and change services for themselves, cutting out the delay of waiting for a third party to make the changes.
