Pioneering Device Supports DSL-Based IP Video and/or MoCA Coax Networked Digital Entertainment; USB Ports Allow Operation of Hard Drive, Printer or Other Peripheral

McCormick Place, Chicago / Hall A, Booth 6737, June 19, 2007 — Comtrend Corp., a leading supplier of broadband, VoIP and data networking equipment, today announced its new NexusLink CT-5633 Bonded ADSL2+/MoCA Residential Gateway, a breakthrough in integrated, next-generation home networking support, at NXTcomm 07 in Chicago. The versatile, comprehensive unit allows service providers to provision homeowners with the latest DSL broadband access and coax home entertainment network technologies, while also supporting USB peripherals and an Ethernet-based LAN.

"The NexusLink CT-5633 is a future-ready device that enables delivery of several of the most promising digital entertainment standards," said Andrew Morton, Comtrend's general manager. "Its flexibility allows it to serve as the single hub for a complete range of data, VoIP, IP video, and IPTV services."

The NexusLink CT-5633 is a breakthrough for providers and homeowners alike. The device includes support for standards based Bonded ADSL2+; Entropic Communications c.LINK� chipset as the entertainment LAN for MoCA (Multimedia over Coax Alliance) via cable port; and USB-based host and device hookups suitable for a hard drive, printer or other peripheral device. Four RJ-45 Ethernet LAN ports allow homeowners to connect up to four PCs directly, while the built-in Wi-Fi 802.11g capability enables connectivity for a wide variety and number of wireless devices.

Leading Standard
The NexusLink CT-5633's support for MoCA puts it at the leading edge of the next wave of digital entertainment services. MoCA, an initiative of major communications companies, supports video, voice and data at data rates of up to 270 Mbps over coax lines in a consumers' home. Speeds are suitable for multiple HDTV channels as well as SDTV or audio streaming.

"We are delighted that Comtrend has adopted Entropic's c.LINK entertainment networking technology," said John Graham, vice president of marketing at Entropic Communications. "The launch of the NexusLink CT-5633 continues the momentum for coax as the backbone of entertainment network and MoCA as the de facto home networking coax standard."

During NXTcomm, Comtrend will be showcasing the NexusLink CT-5633 for the first time at its exhibit, Booth 6737 in Hall A of the McCormick Place convention center.
