PowerDsine joins Radlan's OpENSChannel(tm) technology partner programme adding
Power over Ethernet to production-ready switches and routers

London - 12 November, 2002, PowerDsine the leader of Power over LAN technology, and Radlan, the industry leader of embedded networking software and system solutions, today announced a new partnership agreement. The partnership is aimed at accelerating value-added offerings to Ethernet
systems OEMs that are looking to outsource switches and routers with Power over LAN IEEE 802.3af compliant support. This would enable power to feed through Ethernet ports for applications, such as IP phones, wireless LAN access points, network cameras, and other Ethernet-powered devices.

Radlan offers OEMs fully integrated and tested, manufacturing-ready system solutions, based on its Layer 2, 3 and 4 Open and Portable Embedded Networking Software (OpENS(tm)). Radlan has integrated Power over LAN technology into its OpENSolo(tm) (standalone), OpENStack(tm) (stackable) and OpENSelect(tm) (modular chassis) production-ready system line.

"Radlan has quickly responded to the increasing demand for Power over LAN support in our production-ready switches and routers," said Yoram Valent, President of Radlan, Inc. "With the addition of PowerDsine to our OpENSChannel technology partners programme, Radlan provides an immediate
solution to our growing tier one Enterprise and Metro Access OEM customers."

Radlan's embedded software offers complete management and monitoring of Power over LAN connections via Power over LAN MIBs for SNMP applications. Radlan's series of production-ready files optimises the increased PCB footprint, voltage isolation, EMC and heat dissipation created by
integration of the IEEE 802.3af compliant hardware.

PowerDsine's Power over LAN integrated solutions are based on its core technology chipset, which includes the proprietary PD-64008 Octal Port Driver mixed-signal ASIC and PD-64009 Controller. The chipset is a flexible, programmable, autonomous, IEEE 802.3af compliant solution. This
integrated solution, which offers software download and power management capabilities, as well as full MIB support, is suitable for both stackable and chassis-based Ethernet switches.
"We are delighted that Radlan have chosen to use our technology and can reach a large set of switch vendors by leveraging the expertise of both companies," said Amir Lehr PowerDsine's VP of Marketing and Strategic Planning. "This partnership is further evidence that Power over LAN has
become a mainstream technology."
