Teknovus pushing hard in China

Teknovus, a vendor for EPON chipesets, today announced in a press release that their chips are being used by Chinese carriers in more than 20 cities and provinces, including Beijing, Shanghai, and Wuhan. According to Dr. Rex Naden, the CEO, a major selling factor for Teknovus in China has been its focus on delivering advanced services over EPON such as triple play services while meeting SLAs, managment of multiple traffic flows, and fulfilling strict Quality-of-Service requirements of Chinese carriers.

I am sure that China is a difficult but huge market to penetrate for EPON vendors, given that residential access traffic has been growing extremely fast in China. China has not yet adopted the IEEE 802.3ah standard. Moreover, companies which have an engineering base in China such as Immenstar, are likely to have a significant advantage for capturing the Chinese market with the advantage of having focusses local relationships.

The press release is available here.

Are the service providers in China just testing a vendor product based on Teknovus chipset, or are there deployments by carriers.
