Occam Supplies Broadband Infrastructure for Micronesia

The Federated States of Micronesia Telecommunications Corporation (FSMTC) has selected Occam Networks for a major network upgrade enabling wireline broadband service to the main population centers of the islands.

Prior to the deployment of Occam's BLC 6000 MSAP solution, FSMTC offered Internet services through T1 access, dial-up and WiFi. While Pohnpei is the first island in the federation to be connected to the submarine fiber cable, a combination of smart solutions and Occam's MSAP equipment will be deployed in all states. FSMTC will offer DSL to business and residential areas, and VDSL2 to larger businesses. Future plans call for Gigabit Ethernet FTTP in select deployments. Financial terms were not disclosed.
