Zhone CMO to Speak at 2011 Tri-State TCI Technology Conference

Executive addressing fiber build-outs on industry panel

Oakland, CA — June 23, 2011 — Zhone Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:ZHNE), a global pioneer in FTTx network access solutions, today announced it will be participating in the 2011 Tri-State TCI Technology Conference hosted by the North Carolina Telecommunications Industry Association in Charlotte-Concord, North Carolina, June 26-28, 2011.

Zhone's Chief Marketing Officer, Brian Caskey, will speak about "Fiber Build-outs" in the United States during a panel discussion on Tuesday, June 28, 2011 at 8:30 a.m. ET. Specifically, he will address the viability of fiber for wireless operators and backhaul providers – as well as broadband operators and incumbent service providers – and how current access platforms can be leveraged immediately for converged copper/fiber backhaul from the edge-to-the-core.

"Zhone continues to invest in the fiber future of North American operators, including our most recently announced customers Pulaski-White Rural Telephone Cooperative and Alhambra-Grantfork Telephone," noted Caskey. "While increases in bandwidth requirements resulting from shifting consumer habits and media consumption continue to stress network improvements, our comprehensive FTTx access portfolio enables all sizes of service providers – whether mobile operators, telcos, utilities or cable operators – to execute a smooth migration to the next generation of high-bandwidth, high-speed network technologies to a broader service area than ever before."

The recently expanded Zhone FiberHome™ portfolio will be on display at the Zhone booth, including the flagship MXK™ intelligent multi-service access node (MSAN) and Zhone Network Interface Device (zNID) Optical Network Terminals (ONT).
