SPiDCOM Powers Chinese Ethernet-Over-Coax (EoC) Market

PARIS, March 16, 2010--

               China Content Broadcasting Network Expo 2010 (CCBN)
                              Beijing - March 23rd-25th
                                  Hall 1 - Booth 2B601
    - During CCBN Show, SPiDCOM and its partners will display the largest
      range of Ethernet-over-Coax (EoC) products, based on SPiDCOM solutions.

    - High-performance, cost competitive, scalable, open, remotely
      manageable, SPiDCOM EoC Solutions are the ideal choice for Triple-Play
      communications over existing coaxial cable networks.
    - The new generation SPC300-EoC Solution will be presented on
      the SPiDCOM booth, as well as the SCR310-EoC Bridge Reference Design.

    SPiDCOM Technologies, the fabless semiconductor company
specializing in open solutions for anywire broadband communications, will
present the largest range of products based on its EoC solutions during China
Content Broadcasting Network (CCBN) show. CCBN is a leading international
event for digital TV and broadband network industries.

    SPiDCOM based EoC products take advantage of existing CATV
networks to provide value-added services - like broadband Internet - all the
while coexisting with classical CATV signals. SPiDCOM has been a precursor in
this market with its Chinese partners, and now has a large installed base of
products all around China.

    Unlike legacy technologies, SPiDCOM EoC solutions are cost
competitive and scalable, giving cable operator maximum flexibility. Global
system performance (throughput, adaptation to attenuation and noise, number
of nodes managed per master) makes SPiDCOM EoC solutions the ideal
technology. This is the result of SPiDCOM's deep experience of Chinese market
requirements and of previous extensive field deployments.

    "SPiDCOM team cooperates very closely with its Chinese
partners to develop the EoC solutions that best adapt to cable operators
needs," said Radomir JOVANOVIC, President & CEO of SPiDCOM Technologies. "We
are proud to be among them at CCBN show, and to promote all their products."

    SPiDCOM EoC solutions, open and fully remotely manageable

    SPiDCOM provides the semiconductor chips, software and
reference designs to its partners, which then do the end-products.

    The SPiDCOM EoC solutions are based on an open platform with a
Linux firmware. SPiDCOM delivers General Public Licence (GPL) Kernel & other
applications, as well as the adapted toolchain (gcc). This way, device
manufacturers can easily develop and customize their own applications as well
as their own network management tools. Furthermore, they can also develop
their own MIB for a perfect integration into their existing networks (e.g.

    SPiDCOM EoC networks are fully manageable and remotely
upgradable. SPiDCOM provides MIB files and SNMP agents for immediate
integration into existing or standard Network Management Systems. Open
architecture lets manufacturer design and customize network management tools
match operator needs. In addition to the SNMP options proposed, it is also
possible to use a Command Line Interface (CLI) or to implement a web based
management system.

    SPC300-EoC Solution, the new generation

    At CCBN show, SPiDCOM will display its new generation
SPC300-EoC Solution, composed of two versions:

    - SPC300c SoC: 15x15mm 265-contact PBGA, with all interfaces
      available, advised for master nodes design.
    - SPC310c SoC: 20x20mm 176-contact PQFP, with an optimized set
      of interfaces, advised for slave nodes design.

    The first reference design is available and is designed for
low-cost EoC (Ethernet over Coax) slave modems, the SCR310-EoC Bridge
provides a high-performance solution for triple-play communications over
existing coaxial cable networks, with a fast time-to-market.
