K&K Active Announced as Exclusive LG-Nortel WDM-PON Sales Channel for Finland

Distributor to Drive Cost-Effective Fiber-Based Broadband Services in Finland

July 6, 2009

LONDON - K&K Active Oy, a value-added distributor of data transfer and telecommunications products, has reached an agreement with LG-Nortel to be its exclusive Ethernet Fiber Access solution sales channel in Finland. LG Nortel is a joint venture of LG Electronics and Nortel* [OTC:NRTLQ] and K&K Active Oy is part of the Swedish Lagercrantz Group.

The Nortel Ethernet Fiber Access solution, based on Wave Division Multiplexing Passive Optical Network (WDM-PON) technology, will enable K&K to extend its products and service portfolio to address customers interested in next-generation access solutions for residential, business and backhaul services. K&K can now sell one integrated solution for multiple FTTX (Fiber To The 'X') market segments, with residential, business and backhaul applications on a single platform over a foundational infrastructure.

"The coming years will be the real start to Fiber To The Home (FTTH) solutions in Finland," said Harri R?ty, product area manager, Optical Solutions, K&K Active Oy. "LG-Nortel WDM-PON systems will significantly strengthen our optical access product portfolio and will immediately enable us to offer end-users sustainable speeds of up to 1 Gigabit/s. LG-Nortel's Ethernet Access WDM-PON technology is a cost-effective FTTH technology that fulfils the requirements set in the Finnish Government's recently published National Broadband Strategy."

Applications such as unified communications, high-definition videoconferencing, IPTV, and high-speed mobile communications significantly boost worker productivity and business efficiency, but they can present challenges for service providers by dramatically increasing the amount of data travelling over their networks.

"Fiber-optic connectivity is essential to meet growing bandwidth demands and unlock new residential and business applications," said Peter MacKinnon, chairman, LG-Nortel. "Working with K&K we will be able to deliver a next-generation access infrastructure to support the national effort to deliver broadband to Finland's businesses and households."

Nortel's Ethernet Access solution, using WDM-PON technology, uses existing optical backbone infrastructure and enables multiple wavelengths to be carried over existing optical fiber. This fiber reuse enables K&K to offer dedicated and symmetrical bandwidths straight to homes and businesses at a fraction of the cost of laying new fiber.

K&K Active Oy is a value-added distributor of data transfer and telecommunications products. Together with its business partners and affiliates, K&K Active Oy aims to provide customers with solutions that enhance their competitive advantage. The K&K product range covers multiservice and optical systems, IP-communication products, radio systems, xDSL and software for broadband provisioning and monitoring.
