LETTER FROM BRIAN CASKEY, CHIEF MARKETING OFFICER
As America has set its sights on bridging the technology and broadband connectivity divide, Zhone is helping build the advanced communication and enhanced entertainment network of the future.
The 2020 Broadband Vision is aimed at improving America�s global competitiveness, generating new jobs, harnessing continual innovation and, above all, strengthening America�s position as a global leader in the 21st century. At the heart of the 2020 Broadband Vision is the goal of providing 100 million households with affordable 100 Mbps service and ensuring affordable 1 Gbps service in every American community by the year 2020. At Zhone, we are proud to say that our solutions have been designed to provide these services TODAY! Technology innovation has been at the heart of our product philosophy, with the added caveat that the innovation is practical, intuitive and, most importantly, affordable.
In the world of communication today, America is focused on increasing connectivity. At Zhone, we are focused on improving connectivity. Bandwidth has rapidly become the biggest constraint for communication networks. Bandwidth is limiting communication and entertainment experiences for people. Bandwidth is costing lives as mission-critical activities for medical practitioners and first responders are being challenged. Most networks are not designed to support even current bandwidth needs.
Bandwidth Changes Everything � Bandwidth is an enabler with the power to improve and save lives. We may have all have heard the saying �You don�t know what you have till it is gone.� Bandwidth, like Electricity, has the same power � we tend to take what we may have for granted and truly feel its effect when they are gone.
Zhone has designed its end-to-end solution offerings, covering the core-to-the-edge of the network, to ensure Bandwidth will no longer be an excuse or constraint. 1Gbps wire-speed connectivity is being deployed by some of our customers. 100 Mbps services are being provisioned in many parts of the world today. All of these services are being enabled by a combination of Zhone products and solutions including the industry-leading MXK and a host of zNID ONTs, providing 1Gbps wire-speed connectivity and low-cost provisioning, amongst features and benefits.
We are extremely proud that Zhone�s products are all designed and developed in the United States. We may be one of a few select companies that can make this claim. Our products are RUS listed, making them eligible for the US government Broadband initiative. At Zhone, we believe in providing advanced and affordable connectivity. Alongside, we are focused on ensuring that Bandwidth, the most important resource and requirement in our world of communication and entertainment today, is made available and affordable for one and all.
Thank you for being our valued customer and for considering us to be your partner in your goal to provide ultra broadband connectivity.
