Zhone to Concentrate on R&D, Manufacturing and Marketing

Zhone Technologies, the provider of communications equipment and a supplier for VoIP, IPTV, and Ethernet over copper and fibre access lines, has announced the divestiture of the AccessNode and GigaMux product lines.

The move solidly positions Zhone as a pure play in the access market, where the company is realizing strong growth in its multi-service access portfolio as the industry accelerates away from legacy infrastructures. Zhone will concentrate full R&D, manufacturing, and marketing resources on the growth core of its business, adding to its portfolio of high-demand access solutions — including Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) and Gigabit Passive Optical Networks (GPON) — while continuing to introduce key multi-service access platform (MSAP) enhancements throughout the this year.

This move targets Zhone’s strategy exclusively on access solution markets that Broadbandtrends.com, Dell’Oro and Infonetics (the industry analysts following the segment in detail) are forecasting to continue on more than a 40% compound annual growth trajectory through 2010.
