TOKYO & MILPITAS, Calif. -- April 7, 2014

Compass-EOS, the icPhotonics™ networking pioneer, today announced, together
with Net One Systems, a leading systems integrator in Japan, that Compass-EOS’
r10004 equipment is installed at NTT Communications in Japan. This comes at a
time when Internet traffic in Japan is expected to continue to dramatically
grow, requiring telecommunication service providers to scale the capacity of
their network infrastructure. NTT Communications, part of one of the world’s
largest telecommunications companies, the NTT Group, is interested in the
photonics-interconnect powered routers since they result in a radically
smaller router footprint, a result of the innovation inherent in photonics
interconnect and the resulting radical change of router architecture.

“NTT Communications recognizes that high router power consumption and the
resulting cooling requirements, along with the large physical equipment
footprint, are turning into serious problems as data requirements grow due to
the popularity of smart devices and the use of video applications. The
innovation brought by Compass-EOS’ icPhotonics^TM disrupts the routing
industry and frees it from the power-hungry and large footprint routers that
have dominated it. NTT Communications will start a practical test of the
innovative technology with the help of Net One Systems and tackle the increase
of network capacity while reducing power consumption and equipment footprint,”
said Taku Morinobu, Director Technology Network Service at NTT Communications

“NTT Communications understands the value of next-generation routing
architectures and the technologies that drive them,” said Matt Bross, Chairman
and CEO of Compass-EOS. “We look forward to proving that the benefits our
next-generation routers provide are tangible and meaningful as measured by
real operational performance indicators. Our icPhotonics^TM innovation is set
to transform routing.”
