    Complete WiMAX and Metro Access Switch Solution Lively Shows Triple-Play

    HSINCHU, Taiwan, June 6 /CNW/ -- Edge-Core, the professional networking
solution provider, actively showcases its next generation Metro Ethernet
solutions, including WiMAX series and Metro Access Switches, at Taipei 101,
36F Room B from June 5th to 9th, 2007, the Computex Taipei period, under a
real-time triple play scenario.
    The Edge-Core solutions shown in a live Metro Ethernet network demo

    -- Metro access switches/CPE with VDSL2 / WDM / Copper interfaces with
       IEEE802.1ah and 802.1ad compliant
    -- IEEE802.16d WiMAX macro base station, outdoor and indoor units
    -- IEEE802.16e WiMAX base station and Maximum Ratio Combining (MRC)
       technology utilized indoor CPE/IAD/PCMCIA card for mobile user

    Edge-Core WiMAX solutions offer superior connectivity coverage up to 30km
plus excellent building penetration and transmission speed.  The WiMAX CPE was
not only the first in Taiwan to participate WiMAX PlugFest to conduct
interoperability with major WiMAX base station providers, but also the first
to receive the Taipei Summit Interoperability Certification of M-Taiwan.
    In addition, Edge-Core's next generation MAN solution offers a high
capacity hardware design to support 100M, 1G and 10G uplinks.  Also, by
providing S/W and H/W redundancy and hot-swappable components, high
availability and scalability is achieved while comprehensive security and QoS
is guaranteed.
    "The converging technology of data, voice and video expands the
communication application.  It drives the worldwide Telco market demand of
carrier-grade cost-effective Metro Ethernet deployments.  Good evidence is
that today more than 60% of Edge-Core's revenue in Russia was contributed from
metro access products of the Telco market and the number is still increasing,"
Ms. June Chao, the managing director of Edge-Core points out.
    "In those developed countries, Edge-Core provides versatile interfaces
metro access switches to fit existing network environments.  For those
developing countries such as Russia, Latin America and the Middle East, a good
combination of WiMAX and metro access switches enable ISPs to build cost-
effective and reliable MAN networks for triple play services," Ms. Chao
further indicates.
    Except for its metro access and WiMAX solutions for ISPs, Edge-Core also
presents L2/3/4 IPv6 managed switches for enterprises as well as a series of
VoIP and WebSmart switches for multi-site SMBs.
