Occam Networks' BLC 6000 Selected by Ontario IOCs

Ten local, independent telcos in the province of Ontario, Canada have selected Occam Network's BLC 6000 solution to upgrade their networks. These carriers, which together support some 35,000 access lines, include Cochrane Telecom Services, Execulink Inc., Gosfield North Communications Co-op Ltd., Huron Telecommunications Co-operative, Nexicom Group, North Renfrew Telecom, Quadro Communications, Boxborough Telephone Company Ltd., and Wtc Communications (Westport).

Most of these operators are utilizing the Occam BLC 6252 blade. The BLC 6252 provides 48 ports of ADSL2Plus with Lifeline POTS on the same physical interface to deliver voice, data and video services. Subscriber DSL and POTS ports combine with four ports of resilient Gigabit Ethernet transport capabilities to position the 6252-02 Blade as the Triple Play workhorse for the future.
