FairPoint Selects Occam for Network Upgrade in New England

FairPoint Communications has selected Occam Networks as the lead access equipment provider for a major broadband upgrade of its network in northern New England once the proposed acquisition of Verizon's wireline business in Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine is closed. The first phase of the upgrade will include building 10Gig redundant Ethernet rings to over 200 Central Offices throughout the three-state region. Phase two will add over 50,000 DSL lines to rural areas that previously did not have broadband service. A key equipment supplier of Occam's is Laconia, New Hampshire-based Wilcom, which has been manufacturing telephone line test equipment and transmission products in New England since 1967. Financial terms were not disclosed.http://www.occamnetworks.com
