Addition of ON 2505 and 2506 brings Occam’s ONTs into single family
residences and SMB environments to manage the convergence of data and

Broadband World Forum, Paris – October 26, 2010 – Occam Networks (NASDAQ:
OCNW) today, at the opening of the Broadband World Forum in Paris,
announced the addition of the ON 2505 and 2506 GPON Optical Network
Terminals (ONTs) to its comprehensive intelligent ONT portfolio. The two new
indoor ONTs are optimized for deployment in single family residences (SFRs)
and small-to-medium businesses (SMB), allowing service providers to assist
subscribers in the management of in-premise data networking and video

The ON 2505 and 2506 prepare service providers to move the service delivery
and monitoring point into the subscriber premise, empowering a future of
additional value-added services. Delivering a complete triple-play offering
with traditional voice, high-speed data and video services, such as HDTV,
the ONTs can support both residential and business services.

In addition, the ON 2505 and 2506 also feature:

. Support for bandwidth-intensive applications like on-demand video
and gaming with four Ethernet LAN interfaces, and up to symmetric Gigabit
. Multiple options for IP-based voice service with configurations with
either two or four voice ports
. Flexible video support as the ON 2506 provides RF video delivery, or
. Delivery of business class services such as TLS and QinQ
. Simple DC-power with AC-power converter or monitored UPS options

“With the rise of new devices and multimedia applications in the home,
indoor ONTs will be a growth market in North America in the next three
years,” said Jeff Heynen, directing analyst for broadband and video at
Infonetics Research.

“Occam’s ON 2505 and 2506 gives service providers a great new option for
bringing services into the home and accelerating the adoption of fibre-based

Complementing the native IP and Ethernet architecture of the Occam BLC 6000,
the ON 2505 and 2506 also provide service providers with operational expense
and efficiency benefits. Both ONTs are fully managed by Occam’s Optical Line
Terminal (OLT), enabling service providers to reduce the need for costly and
time-consuming truck rolls. As new features and updates are needed, service
providers will be able to simply upgrade or reconfigure the ON 2505 or 2506
from the CO or NOC.

“As the cost of deploying fibre continues to drop, the addition of indoor
ONTs like Occam’s ON 2505 and 2506, which are far easier to install, will
further strengthen the service provider’s business case for FTTP,” said Russ
Sharer, VP Marketing at Occam Networks. “By bringing ONTs into the home,
maintenance and upgrades will no longer be limited by environmental issues
like weather. These products are the next logical step in reducing the
total cost of ownership of fibre deployments, allowing more subscribers to
take advantage of the benefits of fibre while providing a basis for
convergence of devices in the home.”

Occam is showcasing the ONTs on stand D15 at the Broadband World Forum –
almost exactly a year since its launch into the EMEA market. Occam has
already established an EMEA reseller network and its successes include the
award-winning Scarborough Business Park open access network in the UK,
delivered in partnership with value added reseller Fibre Options.
