Occam Showcases New BLC 6006 Chassis

Occam Networks is showcasing its new BLC 6006 chassis at this week's TelcoTV 09 in Orlando, Florida. The BLC 6006 chassis is a new deployment option for the BLC 6000 multi-service access platform and is optimized for small to medium density access networks in the midst of transition to high capacity broadband.

The BLC 6006 incorporates Occam's distributed intelligence architecture which allows each BLC blade to function standalone or in system level operation. As a result, service providers can customize any BLC chassis to accommodate any broadband technology all within a single operating system. The new chassis can accommodate up to six BLC blades in a 7 rack unit space and, when paired with the high-density BLC 6216 VDSL2 or BLC 6316 Gigabit Ethernet FTTP blades, can support up to 288 subscribers.

The BLC 6006 complements the existing BLC 6001 single-slot chassis and BLC 6012 twelve slot chassis. ANSI and ETSI versions of the BLC 6006 chassis will be available. The 6006 is expected to be available in Q1 2010.
