Occam Supplies Multiservice Access in Indiana

Perry-Spencer Rural Telephone Cooperative, has deployed Occam Networks' BLC 6000 multiservice access platform (MSAP) in a FTTH project serving Christmas Lake Village in Santa Claus, Indiana. PSC selected Occam to provide equipment for an ILEC fiber overbuild as PSC looks to enhance its broadband service. This FTTH upgrade of PSC's network, which also provides broadband services throughout a three county region of southern Indiana, is further enhancing the voice, video and data needs of the community.

In addition to the new fiber deployment in Santa Claus, Indiana, earlier this year PSC added Active Ethernet to serve business customers from its existing 10Gigabit Ethernet ring. The network was initially deployed for fixed wireless backhaul and has facilitated the convergence of wireless and business Ethernet traffic. PSC is currently in the process of connecting hospitals and small to medium businesses (SMBs) with high-speed voice, video and data over copper, fiber and native Ethernet services. Occam currently supports over 2,000 total access lines throughout PSC's service network.
