ROSEBURG, Ore., April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — SOLiD Technologies, a global leader in distributed RF and optical transport networks, announced that Quantum Communications has selected SOLiD’s MediaC-1600 fiber access solution to deliver Gigabit-Ethernet services. Quantum, a privately held competitive local exchange carrier based in Redmond, Oregon, is focused on bringing high-speed, reliable, and affordable data communications services to enterprise customers throughout central Oregon.
“We have been very pleased with the unique performance capabilities of SOLiD’s MediaC-1600,” said Scott Church, Director of Engineering and Operations at Quantum Communications. “With the MediaC-1600, we can deliver multiple Gigabit-Ethernet services where we have limited fiber resources. Because the system uses tunable laser modules, sparing requirements are minimal and maintenance is plug-and-play. The system can also serve multiple sites at different distances without adjustment or fine tuning. This versatility allows Quantum to use the system to provide bandwidth, redundancy and security solutions that cannot be solved with other CWDM systems. We plan to employ this system over our fiber plant in the four major cities in Central Oregon. The MediaC-1600 was easy to install and operate and, best of all, requires no changes to our outside plant.”
Today’s competitive service provider needs solutions that maximize efficiencies while providing the performance necessary to exceed customer demands and expectations. The MediaC-1600 platform allows service providers like Quantum to leverage Gigabit-Ethernet without expensive and time-consuming fiber plant upgrades, providing quicker time-to-market advantage.
“Our latest optical product, the MediaC-1600, is well suited for customers like Quantum Communications,” said Saeed Anwar, VP of Business Development for SOLiD Technologies. “Our fiber-saving technology allows service providers to add fiber capacity without building out new fiber or augmenting the existing fiber plant. The MediaC-1600 is immune to reflections, unpolished connectors, and temperature variations. Our deployment with Quantum showcases our patented laser technology and how we deliver multiple Gigabit services without any degradation over distances surpassing 60km.”
