January 16, 2006 Minneapolis, MN -- Local exchange carrier Cal-Ore Telephone is using Optical Solutions' FiberPath 500 FTTP GPON system to deliver voice, video, and data services to a new residential development in Klamath Falls, Oregon.

Cal-Ore Telephone is headquartered in Dorris, California, three miles south of the Oregon border. The carrier serves over 850 square miles of California and Oregon with four exchanges, and says it has expanded its services beyond its traditional exchange borders to provide the services in Klamath Falls.

"The Klamath Falls area is experiencing significant growth and development. Much of the area's allure is its unspoiled natural beauty," comments Bob Hensley, Cal-Ore Telephone's operations manager. "Residents love the area's serenity, but also want to stay connected, so we have installed an Optical Solutions FTTP communications system that has the capacity and flexibility to deliver everything from traditional voice services to HDTV. Advanced communications services are adding to the development's value and attractiveness."

"Forward looking carriers like Cal-Ore are determined to increase revenues by expanding their service area to new developments and underserved areas while containing costs," concludes Mike Dagenais, president and CEO of Optical Solutions. "A FiberPath system's PON design substantially reduces operations costs, and its scalability allows system operators to invest in additional equipment as subscribers increase."
