MARCH 3, 2009 -- BTI Systems (search Lightwave for BTI Systems) says that two independent operating companies, Hay Communications Co-operative Ltd. and Mornington Communications Co-operative Ltd., have selected its equipment to enhance their network capabilities and to meet increasing customer demand for advanced telephony, Internet, and data services. Operating in southwestern Ontario, both IOCs are using the BTI NETSTENDER service platform to consolidate existing network traffic and to pave the way for greater network capacity, the systems vendor reveals.
Hay Communications is using BTI's NETSTENDER DWDM platforms to overlay Ethernet and converge it with existing SONET connectivity. The NETSTENDER system enables Hay to consolidate OC-3 SONET connectivity while adding Gigabit Ethernet and private-line traffic onto a single fiber pair, according to the vendor.
"BTI's solution has increased our network capacity by 650% with the initial deployment," says Angela Schneider, general manager, Hay Communications. "This has enabled Hay to support our growing customer base and provide us with the ability to cost-effectively deliver advanced, dependable residential and business services."
Mornington Communications, located in Milverton, Ontario, is using the NETSTENDER systems in a four-channel CWDM configuration for SONET network consolidation. Combining OC-48 and OC-3 connectivity between Mornington network points of presence (POPs), the upgraded network is designed to support a growing demand for the company's Internet, security monitoring, digital TV, and mobile phone services. The network can scale to 100 Gbps on a single fiber pair.
