OCTOBER 12, 2009 -- ITC DeltaCom Inc., a provider of integrated communications services to customers in the southeastern United States, has extended its digital optical network into several metro markets. The company has deployed Infinera's ATN metro edge platform to expand its metro reach and provide additional high-capacity services.
Under its Interstate FiberNet carrier group, Deltacom will now provide Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), 2.5-Gbps, and 10-Gbps wavelength services in a number of metro markets. The new metro services complement Interstate FiberNet's collocation, metro SONET, and long-haul services, delivering a variety of high-speed services to wholesale customers.
"Over the past two and a half years, Deltacom has been pleased with the high reliability and management simplicity of Infinera's DTN optical network system in our long-haul network," says Jim O'Brien, Deltacom's executive vice president of operations. "We are pleased to integrate Infinera's rapid bandwidth augmentation capabilities into our metro network, enabling Deltacom to quickly and reliably respond to customer demand and continue to expand our reach across our southeastern markets."
"We are delighted to support Deltacom as one of the first carriers to deploy Infinera's ATN metro edge platform," says Jagdeep Singh, Infinera's chief executive officer. "We are proud to deliver the same speed and simplicity to Deltacom's edge network that it has previously enjoyed across its core network."
Infinera will formally introduce its new ATN metro edge platform at SuperComm 2009, which begins on Oct. 21 in Chicago.
