Telco Systems, a provider of network edge technology and IP switching platforms, announced that RLA & Company, of Hayward, CA., has selected its EdgeLink VDSL solution for an MTU/MDU installation in a San Francisco Bay Area apartment establishment, Pacific Park Plaza. RLA & Company is a network solution provider specializing in design, installation, and management of networking applications integrating voice, data and image services.

RLA installed Telco Systems' EdgeLink V24S, 24-port switch to provide residents with symmetrical VDSL for high-speed Internet access together with standard voice and the option to add video services at anytime. The Pacific Park Plaza houses 580 units. Each residence that chooses this service will be provided with an EdgeLink VTU10 VDSL Termination Unit, which connects to the existing phone line as easily as an answering machine, to provide safe, hardwired copper phone connections plus 1.5 Mbps Internet service, an email account, a personal home page and FTP service all with 24-hour customer support.

The EdgeLink VDSL solution is ideal for MTU/MDU (Multi-Tenant Unit, Multi-Dwelling Unit), SOHO (Small Office, Home Office), campus environments; and high-bandwidth applications, such as streaming video, video on demand and surveillance; all using existing two-wire facilities.

Telco Systems' E-Team program provides enterprise partners with a broad line of advanced voice and data products supported by product training, sales tools, and market intelligence.

EdgeLink V24S' non-blocking architecture supports a variety of uplink options including fiber-based Gigabit Ethernet and fiber-or-copper-based 10/100 Mbps Ethernet with port trunking capability to increase aggregate bandwidth. Occupying only 1.5 rack units, EdgeLink V24S offers ultra-high bandwidth and port density per cubic inch, making it the best choice for cramped wiring closets. EdgeLink VTU10 VDSL Termination Unit is a simple and cost-effective means of providing POTS, Internet and video to end-users over their existing 2-wire copper telephone lines.
