mPhase Completes Testing of iPOTS Broadband System

iPOTS provides cost-effective way for telcos to deploy DSL services (December 17, 2001)
mPhase Technologies, Inc. announced today that its iPOTS (Intelligent POTS Splitter Shelf) has successfully concluded interoperability testing with the copper test equipment of a major U.S. manufacturer.

The mPhase iPOTS Intelligent POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) Splitter is a critical component for DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) loop management systems that allows telcos to remotely trouble-shoot and maintain both their narrowband (voice) and wideband (DSL) local loop services. In safely bypassing the mandatory DC blocking capacitors found in all Central Office (CO) splitters required by the ITU, ANSI and ETSI standards-setting bodies, and isolating POTS services on demand, the iPOTS provides a cost-effective way for telcos to deploy DSL services. The mPhase iPOTS offers an all-in-one product, unlike standard POTS Splitters that require the connection of an additional access device to physically circumvent the DC blocking capacitors, which adds additional wiring and increases cost to the service provider.

More About The mPhase iPOTS
The mPhase iPOTS Splitter allows DSL and POTS to function simultaneously over the same copper telephone line. The iPOTS Splitter Shelf is an essential component of any DSL system employing circuit switched telephony where the test head is typically located behind the CO splitter. It can be easily installed in a telco CO or remote location, such as DLC (Digital Loop Carrier) cabinet or MDU (Multiple Dwelling Units) and is compatible with all DSL equipment regardless of manufacturer. When line tests are completed, the iPOTS reverts to a passive mode, permitting telcos to economize on energy consumption. As important, the iPOTS incorporates "hot swappable" filter card technology so that service remains uninterrupted even if cards are removed, thereby assuring constant availability of telephone service, even in the event of a general power failure.

The mPhase iPOTS Splitter Shelf is available through mPhase direct sales and distribution channels and through mPhase strategic partners worldwide. For more information, visit
