(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Optelian, a trusted international provider of optical transport systems, today announces Tier 1 carrier customer DWDM solution deployments to independent network operators, ATMC and Otelco.
ATMC and Otelco deployed Optelian’s DWDM solution, effectively obtaining mid-point interconnect applications with Tier 1 carriers. In both customer deployments, the Tier 1 carrier requirements called for routing new mobile backhaul services through the independent operators’ networks, but insufficient fiber capacity in those network links posed as a critical challenge.
“The ease of Optelian’s DWDM solution to both deploy and use was designed specifically for customers like ATMC and Otelco – enabling them to get up and running, address technical challenges, and be fully able to support their Tier 1 customers immediately,” comments Dave Mills, VP Sales, Service and Marketing, Optelian.
Optelian’s DWDM system enables the provisioning of the additional bandwidth and provides additional capacity for ATMC and Otelco’s future growth. Optelian’s DWDM solution also allows the network operators to install the standardized Tier 1 carrier system without requiring additional configuration, and enables seamless coordination with the Tier 1 to assign the correct wavelengths.
“We didn’t have previous experience with DWDM, but Optelian made this upgrade very simple for us to do,” states Rick Brock, Otelco Central Office Manager. “The equipment was straightforward to order as this is a widely deployed configuration, and Optelian assisted us with the installation, making the whole process very quick and easy.”
“We had already been using Optelian’s WDM and CWDM solutions, so we were able to install this on our own,” adds Jeff Stutts, Manager – Switch Services at ATMC. “Like all Optelian products, the DWDM equipment was delivered and installed quickly allowing us to get this link into service on our schedule.”
