OneCommunity Selects Fujitsu FLASHWAVE for Fiber Project

OneCommunity, which is launching a "Transforming Northeast Ohio: From Rust Belt to Tech Powerhouse" project, has selected Fujitsu's FLASHWAVE 9500 Packet Optical Networking Platform (Packet ONP) for integrating Ethernet, ROADM and SONET/SDH.

Backed by a $44.8 million grant from the National Telecommunications & Information Administration (NTIA), the project will deploy 1,000 miles of fiber across northern Ohio.

While the FLASHWAVE 9500 supplies the majority of OneCommunity's transport capabilities, the Fujitsu FLASHWAVE 7120 is a significant complement. The FLASHWAVE 7120 extends the reach and capacity of the OneCommunity optical network. The platform combines multiplexing, amplification, signal conditioning and performance monitoring, delivering managed services and wavelengths at the network edge.

"This project will have a significant impact on the region's opportunities for economic development and quality-of-life standards," said Scot Rourke, president and CEO, OneCommunity. "We chose to work with Fujitsu Network Communications because they demonstrated not only technology leadership, but also a commitment to our vision. Fujitsu technology will be benefitting Northern Ohio for decades to come."
