iamba Networks Expands Its Sales Activities In Asia Pacific Region

Cupertino, CA - iamba Networks, a leading provider of Gigabit Passive Optical Networking (GPON) solutions, recently announced distribution agreements with Eastele Technology, LTD in China, with I&C Microsystems Co, LTD in Korea, and with Jeritronics LTD in Taiwan. The move demonstrates iamba's sales strategy to bring iGES, iamba GPON Eco-System, a comprehensive GPON solution comprised of advanced ASICs, software and production-ready reference designs, to system vendors and ODMs worldwide.

"We consider Asia one of largest opportunities for GPON deployment. By teaming with three leading Asian sales representatives we are now able to deliver our leading GPON technology to the region," said John Mein, VP of Sales, iamba Networks, Inc.

Last year iamba Networks introduced its GPON Eco-System -- iGES -- a complete GPON solution suite, which enables Telecom Equipment Manufacturers (TEM) and Original Design Manufacturers (ODM) to deliver leading GPON systems in record time. Early this month the company announced the availability of its market leading iSN1000, a family of 3 advanced GPON ONT SoCs with the fastest throughput and lowest power, optimized for Single Family Unit, Single Business Unit and Multi Dwelling Unit applications.

"Korea is already moving forward in the fast lane with several different broadband solutions. We look forward to bringing to the Korean system vendor and carrier market the comprehensive iGES solution to enable an easy adoption of fiber optics based broadband service in Korea," said E. S. Choi, president of I&C Microsystems Co, LTD.

"We chose to work with iamba Networks to bring fiber optic SoCs and software to the Chinese marketplace as the iGES solution is the most comprehensive solution available," said Arthur Chau, president of Eastele Technology LTD.

"There is an incredible ODM need for GPON ONT technology for the emerging GPON market in Taiwan. All the leading ODMs in Taiwan now producing DSL CPEs, are now shifting their focus to the emerging GPON market by adding GPON ONTs to their portfolio," said Samson Ko, president of Jeritronics LTD. "iamba Networks' iGES solution makes it easy for our ODM and system customers to transition to the GPON market in an expeditious and risk free manner."
