Allied Telesis Demonstrates Innovative Internet Video Applications

LAS VEGAS, November 9, 2010 - As the demand for high-definition video and video-sharing multimedia continues to rise across the healthcare, security and retail marketplaces, Allied Telesis Inc., a global provider of secure IP/Ethernet switching solutions and an industry leader in the deployment of IP Triple-Play networks, will showcase at TelcoTV 2010 this week new over-the-top (OTT) IP video applications designed to offer service providers new opportunities for revenue generation and customer engagement. With new hosted applications including bedside concierge, IP video surveillance and IP digital signage, Allied Telesis has worked with tier-one partners to develop new applications that help monetize bandwidth for service providers and open new opportunities for reaching customers.

The rapid growth of video content and services over the Internet poses significant challenges to traditional service providers. The limitations in expanding capacity over copper to support bandwidth-demanding applications underscore the need for Fiber-to-the-Home/Premise/Node (FTTx). To highlight new revenue opportunities for service providers using bandwidth and subscriber connectivity as strategic assets, Allied Telesis has partnered with several market leaders in cloud-based hosted video applications to demonstrate the features and value that can be created for service providers.

At TelcoTV 2010 (Booth #243), Allied Telesis will demonstrate the following partner applications:

"We see an increasing demand for fiber-to-the-premise and much of it is focused on a one gigabit data speed to the home," said Steve Klein, network service provider, marketing and business development, Allied Telesis. "Internet content providers like Google, Vudu, Netflix and Hulu, as well as the consumers who purchase devices to access and share Internet video, all need bandwidth and connectivity. Working with Lincor, Axis and 121View, Allied Telesis is leading the way in developing solutions service providers can leverage to help monetize bandwidth, deliver new content to customers and create new revenue streams."

Bedside Concierge, Hosted IP Video Security and IP Digital Video Signage will be demonstrated by Allied Telesis using the recently released SwitchBlade x3112 FTTX Ethernet switch, targeted for gigabit-to-the-premise fiber services, and the AT-iMG726MOD 1G outdoor multiservice gateway. Allied Telesis has expanded its product portfolio for 1G FTTX technologies to meet the growing worldwide demand for gigabit bandwidth to support new video services.
