Message Development Platform

  1. 1. Rim Semi Message Matrix draftUmbrella Position Statement:For integrated voice, data and video services (triple play services), Rim Semiconductor improves the reliability and service quality of broadband over copper to enable carriersto compete more effectively with cable. The Embarq IP-based transport chipset from Rim Semi delivers better end-user experience with better image quality than other video-over-copper technologies, plus higher bandwidth over longer distances to cut networking costs for the wireline carrier.Core Messages: consistent messages for all audiences that are compelling, differentiated and newsworthy• For telcos facing competition from cable, Rim Semiconductor enables better triple play services than traditional xDSL technologies• Rim Semiconductor dramatically improves the quality of video-over-copper while cutting the cost for the carrier’s access network by 50%• Rim’s IP-based copper transport technology delivers significantly more bandwidth over longer distances—with up to 50% more reach—increasing the total available market for carriers• With more bandwidth and higher reliability, Rim offers better quality of service (QoS) for IPTV than traditional xDSL technologies• Ultimately, Rim’s technology delivers better price/performance for triple play applications, so carriers can guarantee premium service quality and improve profitabilityTagline: Helping carriers win the race for video-over-copper: faster, better, cheaperAudience Specific Messaging:Primary __________Carriers_________ Equipment Manufacturers Wall StreetSecondary Business decision-maker Technologist/Access DSLAM CPENeeds 1.
