11 February 2003 -- Internet Photonics Inc and Aurora Networks have announced a joint-distribution and reseller agreement to market and sell optical transport systems throughout North America and Europe.

It now has rights to sell Aurora's complete line of high-bandwidth transmission systems designed for advanced hybrid fiber/coax (HFC), fibre deep and fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) networks. Likewise, Aurora has been given rights to sell Internet Photonics' family of carrier-grade optical Ethernet and 10Gbit/s DWDM transport products for the cable market.

The agreement "extends Internet Photonics' reach into Canada and Europe where Aurora has a significant presence," said Internet Photonics' president and CEO Gregory Koss. "This announcement, along with interoperability announcements with SeaChange, MidStream, and Concurrent, as well as our product development agreement with Path1 Network Technologies, illustrates Internet Photonics commitment to helping our customers roll out new on-demand, digital television, and business services to customers."

Aurora Networks' president and CEO Guy Sucharczuk said, "The combination of Aurora's and Internet Photonics product lines expands the breadth, performance and cost effectiveness of the solutions we are able to provide our customers worldwide. Specifically, Aurora can now complement its complete HFC solutions with Internet Photonics' high-bandwidth transport solutions for on-demand applications."

Internet Photonics is delivering the first carrier-grade managed optical Ethernet solutions with 10Gbit/s DWDM transport to allow cable operators to sell profitable high-bandwidth data and on-demand services alongside existing legacy services. Its next-generation optical transport products are scalable and provide carrier-grade reliability and manageability.
