Press Release Summary = CompTel Spring 2007 Convention & Trade Expo, Las Vegas, NV,
Feb 22nd, 2007 - Accedian Networks announced today that it has added a highly
accurate Performance Assurance AgentT into its EtherNIDT Ethernet Demarcation Device
product line.

Press Release Body = The Accedian EtherNIDT now allows constant in-service
monitoring of Service Level Agreement (SLA) parameters including: packet loss,
latency (delay), jitter (delay variation) and continuous End-To-End path Continuity
Check (availability).

Using a unique silicon-based architecture, the EtherNIDT features the market's
lowest intrinsic latency and jitter, thus allowing it to yield the highest-precision
measurements with an outstanding 1 microsecond resolution and provide a true view of
the end customer experience.

"In a world where Best-Effort Carrier Ethernet is no longer acceptable or
sufficient," said Patrick Ostiguy, CEO of Accedian Networks, "the EtherNIDT now
allows Carriers and Operators to ensure and guarantee their Service Level Agreements
throughout the End-to-End path, on an ongoing basis, 24/7, and provides a reliable
way to Map-out the Health of their Network."

Accedian Networks' PAAT operates in a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint fashion
and is capable of monitoring multiple simultaneous flows (Multi-SLAT). Furthermore,
it operates at both Layer 2 and Layer 3 (IP) and can assure SLAs on a per-VLAN,
per-CoS, per-ToS and per-EVC basis.

Accedian Networks (booth #1007) will be exhibiting its EtherNIDT solutions as part
of CompTel Spring 2007 Convention & Trade Expo, Las Vegas, NV, Venetian Hotel,
February 27th-March 1st, 2007.
