Mar. 16, 2001--Appian Communications, claiming to be the first to offer an optical edge solution optimized for high growth packet services that leverage existing optical infrastructures, announced it will demonstrate Ethernet services with its Optical Data Protection (ODP) at OFC.

Appian Communications, claiming to be the first to offer an optical edge solution optimized for high growth packet services that leverage existing optical infrastructures, announced it will demonstrate Ethernet services with its Optical Data Protection (ODP) at OFC. ODP is a technology fully interoperable with existing network infrastructures and enables SONET-quality resilient packet services in packet optimized SONET/SDH ring environments.

Appian will be in booth #280 at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibit (OFC), at the Anaheim Convention Center, March 19-21.

Appian will highlight its Ethernet Private Line and Internet Access service capabilities at OFC, demonstrating how service providers can use its Optical Services Activation Platform (OSAP) to deploy services that combine the low cost and flexibility of Ethernet together with the resilience, manageability, and global scale of SONET/SDH networks. With the OSAP's integrated support for legacy TDM services, providers can easily migrate from rigid, circuit-optimized voice and data offerings to a new generation of carrier-class Ethernet services.

About Appian Communications:

Appian offers an optical edge solution optimized for the migration from traditional TDM services to high growth, high revenue packet services. For more information, visit www.appiancom.com.
