Troy Cablevison has successfully deployed Optelian’s MPX-9110 flexible 100 Gbps platform in its network. The low-latency 100G architecture is deployed across Optelian’s LightGAIN optical transport and reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer (ROADM) infrastructure.
The Troy Cable network covers a six-county area spanning the southeastern region of Alabama and delivers high-capacity fiber-optic transport from the cities of Montgomery to Troy to Dothan, and all markets in between. The build-out was made possible through the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP) via the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
Troy Cable is able to quickly turn up services across its fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) and business (FTTB) infrastructure. In an area of the state where only limited low-bandwidth network options were once available, the advanced Troy Cable network delivers a high-capacity solution to schools, universities, banks, hospitals, health care organizations and government and military installations.
“This 100G enhancement to our network delivers a major expansion throughout the region,” explained Conley Freeman, CTO of Troy Cable. “Never before has there been a contiguous network from Dothan to Montgomery. In delivering this critical inaugural connection, we wanted a high-capacity platform that would allow us to easily scale but still efficiently use our fiber. Optelian’s 100G solution has performed very well. We were able to provision it quickly, and it is an extremely compact, powerful and spectrally efficient solution.”
With the 100G-ready network in place, customers have options for alternate disaster recovery, scalable off-site storage and the possibility of diverse network paths. Optelian has enabled Troy Cable to deliver a 10-fold increase in capacity for customers of its triple-play services (data, voice and video). Offering 2.5G, 10G and now 100G wavelengths, Troy Cable has a solution that enables service providers to offer up to 10 full-rate 10G services on a 100G wavelength to accommodate expected future demand.
