Cinta Networks selects ADC for installation and deployment of its optical wavelength networking systems

Aug. 15, 2001--ADC will work with Cinta's service provider customers to provide the installation and field support necessary for deployment of the company's WAVEJunction optical wavelength networking systems.

Cinta Networks, a provider of a new class of optical networking systems that reduce network costs and accelerate revenue generation for service providers, announced it has selected ADC (Nasdaq:ADCT) -- a global supplier of fiber optics, network equipment, software and integration services for broadband multiservice networks -- as a strategic partner for equipment engineering, furnishing, and installation (EF&I) services. ADC will work with Cinta's service provider customers to provide the installation and field support necessary for deployment of the company's WAVEJunction optical wavelength networking systems.

WAVEJunction re-architects the fundamental transport and switching elements of optical networks, integrating these once disparate elements and enabling massive scalability with per-port deployment of wavelength services. WAVEJunction redefines the economics of intelligent optical networks, delivering substantial savings in capital (CAPEX) and operating (OPEX) expenses for service providers while speeding deployment of new services. The combination of this groundbreaking technology with ADC's global installation program will ease the deployment of next-generation optical transport with switching systems for service providers.

Cinta's WAVEJunction will enter into general availability in Q3 2001.
