"With our customer base increasing and higher than ever demands for online services, we knew we needed to upgrade and expand our network," said Tim Hightower, technical services manager, Adams Telephone Co-Operative. "With BTI's end-to-end solutions deployed, we are able to retain existing equipment investments while transitioning to Carrier Ethernet. We've been able to scale our capacity to create new revenue streams, such as mobile backhaul and Ethernet business services, across our entire network. Combined with a small footprint and low use of power, BTI's solutions have us in great shape for years to come."

Adams has deployed the BTI 7000 Series packet-optical networking platform and the proNX Service Manager with the SLA Portal software. The Metro Ethernet Forum CE-Certified BTI 7000 Series provides Adams with carrier-grade, modular, and scalable pay-as-you-grow configurations, the company says.

BTI's proNX Service Manager and SLA Portal software deliver end-to-end network management, service provisioning, and performance monitoring for mobile backhaul, Ethernet business services, and metro packet-optical core applications. Combined with the 7000 Series, this has enabled Adams to improve infrastructure efficiency, increase the rate of delivery of profitable high-value services, and deliver more highly scalable, flexible products that readily adapt to changing business needs.
