AUGUST 11, 2009 -- Occam Networks Inc. (search Lightwave for Occam) has announced that Stayton Cooperative Telephone of Oregon has purchased Occam's BLC 6000 FTTH platforms to upgrade the service provider's entire network from an all-copper to an all-fiber packet architecture.

To drive high-speed broadband to both densely and sparsely populated areas within Stayton's service footprint, the company will use Occam's BLC 6000 multiservice access platform (MSAP) and ON 2300 series optical network terminals (ONTs) to provide advanced voice and broadband services to Stayton's 8,500 customers.

According to Occam, Stayton needed a platform that could expand bandwidth, reach rural consumers, and deliver superior performance.

"Our goal is to aggressively deploy a new, all-fiber network, enabling us to augment the services we provide subscribers and capture new revenue streams," said Don Lawrence, president of Stayton Telephone Cooperative. "Occam brought to the table an Ethernet FTTP solution that fit our strategy, a commitment to rural operators, and the expertise to help us see a rapid return on our investment in a highly competitive environment."
