InnerCity FiberNet, LLC (ICFN), a Dallas-based Competitive Access Provider (CAP), has selected the MediaC-1600 fiber access network solution from SOLiD Technologies to maximize its fiber network to deploy Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) services, light up customer sites faster and support multiple network configurations.
The SOLiD Technologies MediaC-1600 enables ICFN to do more with its fiber plant by providing 16 independent channels of traffic over a single strand of fiber, eliminating the expense to upgrade or build out additional network. The SOLiD Technologies fiber access solution also helps the ICFN quickly and easily turn up customer sites thanks to accessible front-side fiber connectors, provisioning-free plug and play configuration, and tunable laser technology that automatically attenuates for distance. The same system allows ICFN to provide service in multiple network configurations, including Point to Point GbE, Point to Multipoint GbE and Point to Multi Drop services up to 60Km.
The SOLiD Technologies MediaC-1600 fiber access solution offers both cost and time-to-market advantage, according to Greg Stilwell, Managing Partner at InnerCity FiberNet, LLC. “We were looking for a technology which would allow us to be able to provide our customers GbE services into the client’s building, or Multiple GbE services to multiple clients on our fiber ring without stranding significant amounts of our fiber or forcing us to build additional fiber network.” Get the rest of the Inside Story at http://tinyurl.com/3qbfmkc4G, AT&T, Verizon, WDM PON, wireless
