ACTUS Networks to Demonstrate World's First Commercially Available G.8032 2010
Ethernet Ring Protection Technology at SUPERCOMM 2009
G300 and G200 Carrier Ethernet Access Platforms with SyncRing Allow Wireless
Broadband Carriers to Leverage Ethernet Technology to Ensure High Reliability
and Rapid Service Restoration

SEOUL, Korea and CHICAGO, Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- SUPERCOMM 2009, Booth 3329 -
ACTUS Networks, a global provider of Carrier Ethernet Access (CEA) solutions,
announced today that it will demonstrate its new G.8032 2010-enabled Ganesh
300, Ganesh 200 CEA devices and SyncRing Ethernet Ring Protection (ERP)
solutions at SUPERCOMM 2009 (Wed. Oct. 21 - Fri. Oct. 23) at McCormick Place
in Chicago. ACTUS is the world's first company to commercialize the new ITU-T
G.8032 2010 technology, which was consented on Oct. 9th 2009, to deliver
greater Ethernet ring resilience at a more affordable cost for small to
medium-sized applications. The devices will be on display at ACTUS booth

"G.8032 delivers 50-ms failure protection and rapid service restoration
comparable to SDH/SONET and RPR resilience for carriers at a much more
affordable cost by leveraging less expensive Ethernet-based hardware instead
of costly synchronous equipment," said Dr. J. Kevin Rhee, CSO at ACTUS
Networks and professor at KAIST. "We're very pleased to unveil the first
commercially available application of this emerging technology at SUPERCOMM,
the world's premiere forum for broadband technologies."

Ganesh 300: Compact and Cost-Effective
ACTUS' Ganesh 300 is a compact and cost-effective CEA platform ideally suited
for the aggregation node of wireless backhaul. With just a 1RU-size form
factor in a 19" rack mount, the G300 provides PBB-TE, E-LINE/E-LAN, OAM and
Circuit Emulation with resilience supported by G.8032 2010 ring protection on
the network side. The user side features two User Service Modules (USM) with
1:1 end-to-end service protection to maximize Ethernet reliability and
resilience, even under heavy load. Ethernet protection requires much less
bandwidth resource than SDH/SONET-type protections for the same level of
protection performance. The G300 delivers 28G switching capacity with 4-port
GbE and 2-port 10G network aggregation capabilities, with two optional modules
for highly integrated TDM-based interface modules.

Ganesh 200: Easy Migration to Ethernet at Lower Cost of Ownership
The G200 CEA platform provides an ideal and affordable migration path from
current legacy radio access backhaul networks to Carrier Ethernet Networks
with a compact 1RU-size form factor, 16-port E1/T1 and 8-port fast Ethernet
interfaces that aggregate to a 1:1 Gigabit network interface. Fully capable of
supporting a Packet Transport Network, G200 is ideally suited to provide easy
Ethernet migration with outstanding Quality of Service and SLA assurance for
Ethernet private line services.

SnycRing Brings G.8032 Technology to Existing CEA Platforms
ACTUS' SyncRing enables equipment manufacturers and carriers to implement the
new G.8032 Ethernet Ring Protection on their existing CEA products with a
complete software and hardware package that includes G.8261 Ethernet clock
synchronization technology. Complete with the software source code,
documentation and hardware reference design with Broadcom Ethernet switch,
SyncRing makes it easy and affordable for companies with existing hardware
investments to migrate to the G.8032 standard for greater resilience and rapid
service protection without costly synchronous equipment.

"The majority of service providers are beginning to realize the benefits of
Ethernet as a carrier-class technology over the more expensive synchronous
digital hierarchy (SDH) or synchronous optical network (SONET)," Rhee said.
"The advent of the G.8032 standard has enabled ACTUS to provide the most
reliable Ethernet protection with rapid restoration and high availability at
an affordable price, to help maximize carriers' revenue per user even though
end-user bandwidth demands grow."

ACTUS Networks' carrier Ethernet access and mobile backhaul solutions enable
network operators to reduce operating expenses and capital expenditures while
maintaining exceptional quality of service and ensuring SLA adherence through
a cost-effective coupling of Ethernet and TDM traffic to accommodate
ever-increasing mobile data demands.
