Strategic Acquisition of Oscilloquartz SA Now Complete

Martinsried/Munich, Germany. April 8, 2014. ADVA Optical Networking announced today the successful completion of
its acquisition of Oscilloquartz SA
from the Swatch Group. The acquisition is a major milestone for ADVA
Optical Networking as it continues its rapid expansion into the
synchronization business. The acquisition now provides ADVA Optical
Networking with a complete end-to-end solution for the delivery and
assurance of highly accurate timing -
a first within the industry. This end-to-end solution is of vital
importance to an increasingly broad market. It's not only critical in
the development of mobile broadband networks but also to a wide range of
enterprises, including financial organizations, utility companies and
government institutions.

"There can be no question that timing delivery and assurance will be one
of the most important technologies in our industry, in our networks,"
said Gil Biran, senior vice president, Corporate Development and
Strategy, ADVA Optical Networking and designated management leader,
Oscilloquartz. "It will be crucial to the development and, ultimately,
the success of so many businesses, especially for mobile network
operators seeking to leverage the opportunities of TD-LTE and
LTE-Advanced (LTE-A). With the acquisition of Oscilloquartz we have a
unique advantage over anyone else in the industry. The scalability of
our solution from the core to the last mile of the network, the accuracy
of our clock recovery and the experience of our team is second to none.
Timing distribution and assurance is an end-to-end technology and not
just needed in the core or at the edge of a network. Our combined
solution is a game changer, a true competitive edge."

To be fully integrated into ADVA Optical Networking's Syncjack(TM)
solution, Oscilloquartz' technology provides a unique differentiator.
It's the most established within the industry and has gathered a
significant footprint over its long history. However, the unique
integration of ADVA Optical Networking and Oscilloquartz immediately
opens up major new business and revenue opportunities. What's more,
these opportunities are only going to increase, fueled by the transition
to packet-based network infrastructure. Consider the evolution of mobile
backhaul or the development of synchronization in enterprise networks.
We're at the very start of critical network developments. The next few
years will clearly highlight the strategic vision of this acquisition.

"Accurate delivery and assurance of timing is required for the evolution
of mobile broadband networks from 3G to LTE to LTE-A and TD-LTE and on
to 5G - smooth cell-to-cell handoffs in dense small cell environments or
fast moving cars and trains will not work without it," stated Michael
Howard, co-founder and principal analyst, Infonetics Research. "It's
about time: Oscilloquartz has been a pioneer and key player in atomic
clocks, timing and synchronization for decades. The addition of
Oscilloquartz to ADVA Optical Networking forms a strong team that
addresses all timing and synchronization areas of packet networks."
