Zhone Technologies Communicates Seven Ways Optical LAN Solutions Can Improve
Enterprise Networks

Optical LAN helps enterprises conserve energy and reduce operating costs up to
70 percent

Oakland, CA
-May 13, 2014
- More devices than ever before are connecting to the Internet these days,
bringing a flood of traffic to enterprise LANS. Many enterprise networks are
not ready for the heavy traffic, leading to overloaded networks. As a global
leader in FTTx network access solutions, Zhone Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:
ZHNE) today unveiled seven ways fiber-based passive optical LAN solutions can
improve enterprise communications.

With the number ofconnected devices predicted to reach 30 billion by 2020,
network infrastructures must also be improved in order to provide the needed
bandwidth to support these devices. Additionally, as enterprises push more
and more information to the cloud, high-speed broadband connections become
critical. However, refurbishing or deploying a new network infrastructure is
expensive. Optical LAN provides an alternative solution with several benefits
to the enterprise. These benefits include:

1 Saved space : Optical LAN solutions can lead up to a 90 percent reduction
in floor and rack space as a result of the high density benefits associated
with the Optical LAN equipment and passive nature of the solution when
compared to copper.
2 Decreased power : Optical LAN can provide up to an 84 percent reduction in
power utilization since switches are no longer needed on every floor.
Optical LAN has passive splitters, reducing the power costs and eliminating
cooling systems, cooling costs and wiring closets.
3 Highly secure : Fiber is more secure than copper because it is immune to
many environmental factors that can affect copper and it isn't susceptible
to radio frequency interference or electrometric interference. Data is safe
since fiber doesn't radiate signals and is very difficult to tap. Fiber
networks also enable all electronics and hardware to be located in one
central location. Plus, it's military-grade.
4 Increased lifespan : Unlike copper, fiber lasts for 50+ years. It
eliminates cable congestion and covers a distance of up to 20 kilometers or
12 miles. Since there is very little signal loss during transmission, data
can move farther at rapid speeds. Fiber also doesn't require infrastructure
upgrades like copper so it's more cost effective.
5 Optimized architecture : Condensing the equipment needed allows enterprises
to utilize space more efficiently.
6 Reduced CAPEX : Single-mode fiber is up to 50 percent cheaper to deploy
than Cat 6A copper. Passive Optical LAN lowers capital costs by up to 70
percent reducing the need for active components, electronics, and
cross-connects.
7 Increased revenue : In the case of theCrown Plaza hotelin Clayton, Mo., the
installation of FiberLAN helped increase occupancy by 20 percent in six
months, as guests appreciated access to the reliable high-speed Internet.

"Optical LAN solutions like Zhone's FiberLAN enable the enterprises to
maximize bandwidth while condensing space requirements and lower cabling
costs," said Brian Caskey, chief marketing officer at Zhone Technologies.
"Ultimately, the cost-effective solution allows providers to deliver the
reliable, high-speed connections necessary while using technology that won't
require costly infrastructure upgrades."
Zhone's Fiber-based LAN is a high-performance, high density GPON-based Optical
LAN solution (OLS) delivering high speed data, voice and video to
multi-level, multi-unit commercial and industrial complexes, including hotel
rooms, bandwidth demanding desktops and work-stations. It can be deployed in
offices, rooms, factories or other harsh industrial environments, delivering
comprehensive connectivity for any Local Area Networking requirement.

Zhone continues to provide innovative access solutions, delivering voice,
video and data services over copper and fiber. For more information on
