COMPANY OVERVIEW Ever wonder how the “World Wide Wait” became the World Wide Web? The answer lies in the advancements made by Broadband Technology Innovations, LLC; a Washington, DC based Company that has an exclusive license to a substantial portfolio of patents defining the “splitterless” ADSL system. By discovering new uses for existing telephone infrastructure, the splitterless technology revolutionized how consumers and businesses adopted broadband internet access, enabling rapid and widespread uptake of the technology, and setting the stage for “Triple and Quad Plays” via the telephone network. A pioneer in the area of broadband communication services, BBTI continues to innovate while finding new ways of leveraging the splitterless technology for the benefit of consumers and businesses alike. Visit the homepage to download a white paper detailing BBTI’s licensed patent technology, and how that technology has revolutionized broadband internet access. INNOVATIONS The art of “what’s possible” is the lynchpin of innovation. BBTI saw untapped possibilities in the existing legacy telephone system and in the process created the modern-day DSL technology millions of consumers and businesses rely on today. BBTI’s licensed patents detail the process for separating voice from higher speed video and data on traditional phone lines, which enables broadband access to the internet through the telephone network. In addition to facilitating DSL access through traditional phone lines, BBTI’s technology also sets the stage for a host of additional innovations, including Internet Protocol TV, which is the foundation for the “Triple Play” offered by the telephone companies. ADSL – Broadband Internet Access The most successful use of BBTI’s technology is defining the process for what is commonly known as broadband internet access. Initially, the telephone companies routed the information and voice signals to a splitter outside the home, requiring a professional technician visit. The voice and information signals were separated at the network interface device, ignoring the configuration of inside wiring in the home. The result was service difficulties and costly visits to establish service. BBTI’s licensed patents provide for a significantly less expensive method. Through BBTI’s technology, a filter is placed between each telephone and the corresponding jack by the consumer. “Splitterless ADSL,” the enabling technology for broadband access through the traditional phone system, is born. Splitterless ADSL is dramatically less expensive than the alternative because it almost always saves the expense of a visit by specially trained technician. By removing the need for professional installation, splitterless ADSL is much more efficient and reliable than the splittered approach, resulting in rapid growth and setting the stage for future innovations. INTERNET PROTOCOL TV (IPTV) Consumers want communications experiences to be faster and more integrated. They want their TV, Internet, e-mail, IM, and personal voice services to find them, on whichever device they use, wherever they are, whether at home, at work or on the go. They want simple sign-on and billing. They want personalized, intelligent and seamless HDTV quality interactive features that can enhance and simplify their lifestyles. The major telephone companies have announced plans to spend billions of construction dollars in pursuit of this goal, under a suite of new service offerings called the Triple Play and the Quad Play. Triple Play encompasses the convergence of three communications technologies: video, voice telephony and data in the wire line network, and the Quad Play defines moving the Triple Play broadband services to wireless devices. BBTI’s licensed patents define the enabling system for ADSL 2+ required to deliver IPTV through the existing telephone distribution network without having to extend fiber optic cables all the way to the home, resulting in much quicker availability of the new services at significantly less cost. COMPANY Broadband Technology Innovations, LLC is an advanced communications technology company committed to a simple mission: developing technology that leverages speed, reliability, and communication to empower the consumer. The Company’s commitment to the world’s existing telephone infrastructure to achieve this objective has been – and continues to be – its key differentiating advantage. The foundation of our technology is splitterless ADSL, which is the enabling technology that has driven the rapid uptake of broadband internet access over existing telephone lines. We are always striving to build upon this core technology to provide consumers with quick access to the global community and increasingly viable communications alternatives. Management Philip A. Wilkinson – President and Chief Operating Officer For over 15 years, Phil Wilkinson has been at the forefront of some of the most important breakthroughs in broadband communications services and the convergence of telephony, computing and video into a single network. In his current capacity as President and Chief Operating Officer of Broadband Technology Innovations, LLC, Phil oversees the portfolio of patents that constitute the key enablers for ADSL systems being deployed by service providers. These patents define interactive broadband services delivered from the internet; hence enabling the “Triple Play” via the telephone network. Phil began his career at AT&T, where he worked for over 20 years, holding positions of increasing responsibility. During his career there, he was responsible for planning the introduction of new technologies into the AT&T network, including fiber optics, which created broadband transmission in the telephone trunk network in the 1980’s. As Vice President of Strategy – AT&T Network Systems, he developed AT&T’s entry strategy into the Japanese market in 1988 as a member of the CEO’s task force. The result was AT&T becoming the largest US network equipment supplier to NTT – Japan, deploying the first broadband ATM switch fabric. His responsibilities also included management of Bell Telephone Laboratories’ Intellectual Property portfolio as a profit center, while directing $2 billion annually for Bell Lab’s development and research budgets. Subsequently, at Digital Switch Corporation (DSC) in the mid 90’s, Phil was EVP (US) and President (Denmark), Broadband - Transport and Access Products. Under his leadership, the $1 billion a year global equipment business generated $100 million a year in profits. Phil received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Southern Methodist University. David Ehreth – Chief Technical Officer David Ehreth has been involved in nearly all aspects of the telecommunications industry for 30 years. As a founding member of Optilink Corporation, David developed the preeminent fiber to remote terminal product, Litespan, still dominant in the US market today. Digital Switch Corporation acquired Optilink and Litespan became their flagship broadband access product. As the Chief Technical Officer at Broadband Technology Innovations, LLC, David utilizes his expertise in the field of broadband loop access. Prior to joining BBTI, David was the founder and CEO of Westwave Communications, later acquired by Alcatel, where he developed a distributed call control engine. David holds three patents as the sole inventor in the areas of broadband, wireless, and video communications. David studied engineering at California State Polytechnic University and College of Marin. Robert H. Domnitz – Member of Technical Staff Robert Domnitz is a Member of Technical Staff at Broadband Technology Innovation’s. Robert is also President and Principle Engineer at Technical Collaborative, Inc., providing design and consulting services in electronic communications and instrumentation. Prior to Technical Collaborative, Robert served as a telecommunications industry specialist in the Massachusetts’ Governor’s Executive Office of Economic Affairs. Robert was positioned as an industry ombudsman in the Weld Administration. He started his career with Massachusetts Institute of Technology Lincoln Laboratory as a staff engineer. He holds four patents in the fields of broadband technology, video transmissions and connections. Robert attended Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he received his B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering. He also holds a J.D. from Boston College Law School.
