Strategic Acquisition of Oscilloquartz SA Now Complete

Martinsried/Munich, Germany. April 8, 2014.
ADVA Optical Networkingannounced today the successful completion of its
acquisition ofOscilloquartz SAfrom the Swatch Group. The acquisition is a
major milestone for ADVA Optical Networking as it continues its rapid
expansion into the synchronization business. The acquisition now provides
ADVA Optical Networking with a complete end-to-end solution for thedelivery
and assurance of highly accurate timing- a first within the industry. This
end-to-end solution is of vital importance to an increasingly broad market.
It's not only critical in the development of mobile broadband networks but
also to a wide range of enterprises, including financial organizations,
utility companies and government institutions.

"There can be no question that timing delivery and assurance will be one of
the most important technologies in our industry, in our networks," said Gil
Biran, senior vice president, Corporate Development and Strategy, ADVA
Optical Networking and designated management leader, Oscilloquartz. "It will
be crucial to the development and, ultimately, the success of so many
businesses, especially for mobile network operators seeking to leverage the
opportunities of TD-LTE and LTE-Advanced (LTE-A). With the acquisition of
Oscilloquartz we have a unique advantage over anyone else in the industry.
The scalability of our solution from the core to the last mile of the
network, the accuracy of our clock recovery and the experience of our team is
second to none. Timing distribution and assurance is an end-to-end technology
and not just needed in the core or at the edge of a network. Our combined
solution is a game changer, a true competitive edge."

To be fully integrated into ADVA Optical Networking's Syncjack(TM) solution,
Oscilloquartz' technology provides a unique differentiator. It's the most
established within the industry and has gathered a significant footprint over
its long history. However, the unique integration of ADVA Optical Networking
and Oscilloquartz immediately opens up major new business and revenue
opportunities. What's more, these opportunities are only going to increase,
fueled by the transition to packet-based network infrastructure. Consider the
evolution of mobile backhaul or the development of synchronization in
enterprise networks. We're at the very start of critical network
developments. The next few years will clearly highlight the strategic vision
of this acquisition.

"Accurate delivery and assurance of timing is required for the evolution of
mobile broadband networks from 3G to LTE to LTE-A and TD-LTE and on to 5G -
smooth cell-to-cell handoffs in dense small cell environments or fast moving
cars and trains will not work without it," stated Michael Howard, co-founder
and principal analyst, Infonetics Research. "It's about time: Oscilloquartz
has been a pioneer and key player in atomic clocks, timing and
synchronization for decades. The addition of Oscilloquartz to ADVA Optical
Networking forms a strong team that addresses all timing and synchronization
areas of packet networks."
