Zhone Technologies Reveals zNID 2301 at FTTH London 2013
Indoor GPON ONT offers smallest form-factor model available on the market

Oakland, CA - Feb 20, 2013 - Zhone Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZHNE), a global
leader in FTTx network access solutions, announced that it has expanded its
indoor GPON ONT line to include the zNid 2301, released today at the FTTH
Conference 2013, London (February 19-21; Zhone booth S15). The zNID 2301 GPON
ONT, created for residential and small business services, provides many
features in the smallest available CPE package, including high quality voice
and data services and multicast video support.

The zNID 2301 is ideal for fiber to the home (FFTH) or small business
deployments where high-speed data needs to be transported reliably. Due to its
incredibly small form factor, the zNID 2301 ONT may be mounted on a wall or
placed free-standing on a desktop. It also operates well in conjunction with
separate residential gateway devices such as routers and WiFi access points to
provide flexible triple-play configurations. It can also be equipped with a
battery-backup system if necessary.

"Zhone's indoor GPON ONTs are designed not only to be a lower cost alternative
to outdoor ONT solutions, but to also deliver the full range of advanced IP
voice, data and video services," said Brian Caskey, chief marketing officer at
Zhone. "The zNID 2301 GPON ONT is ideal for residential or small business
customers looking to improve broadband and high-speed connection reliability."

Compliant with standard OMCI definitions, the zNID 2301 is easily managed from
remote sites and supports the full range FCAPS functions including
supervision, monitoring and maintenance. Zhone provides the fully managed,
end-to-end GPON solution, allowing its customers to buy a complete and fully
tested solution from one source.

Zhone's FiberHome portfolio of products and solutions fulfills the network
requirements of both international and domestic customers' broadband expansion
efforts for residential users.

GPON ONT, please visit Zhone at booth S15 during the FTTH Conference 2013 in
