Occam Supplies FTTH to Northeast Missouri Rural Telephone

Northeast Missouri Rural Telephone has chosen Occam Networks' BLC 6000 multiservice access platform and ON 2300 series optical network terminals to upgrade the second largest of its 14 exchanges from copper to fiber.

As part of its FTTH deployment strategy, Northeast Missouri will initially upgrade their Memphis service area from aerial copper to buried fiber. Additional service areas will be upgraded in the future.

Northeast Missouri offers subscribers local and long distance telephone and high speed Internet services. It is a founding member of the Missouri Network Alliance, a fiber transport network that extends throughout much of the state. Northeast Missouri receives its IPTV signal through the Alliance and has been offering IPTV to a growing number of subscribers for approximately 10 months.
