SEPTEMBER 24, 2007 -- Wave7 Optics (search for Wave7) says that Orlando Business Telephone Services (OBTS) and its sister company Orlando Telephone Co. (OTC) have installed its fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) equipment in the Orlando area.

OBTS and OTC operate throughout Florida and service more than 14,000 access lines in the Orlando area. They offer triple-play services and target residential customers in apartment complexes and new single-family home developments, as well as large and small business customers, with an emphasis on the hospitality industry.

OBTS and OTC have selected the Trident7 Universal Access Platform, deployed in its EPON (IEEE 802.3ah EFM standard) FTTP configuration, to connect initially more than 1,600 homes and apartments. The Trident7 is designed to provide standards-based GPON, EPON, and point-to-point technologies simultaneously from a common platform. OBTS and OTC have deployed two Trident7 optical line terminals in two separate central office facilities, where they are integrating them with VoIP switching equipment from Mitel and routers from Cisco.

"We selected the Trident7 for, among other reasons, its simplicity of use and its flexibility to support both RF and IP video," said John Fisher, president of OBTS. "We're already initiating services via these new networks and our customers will welcome the triple-play service packages."
