On August 2, 2011, Zhone Technologies, Inc. announced that it had expanded its business relationship with Velocity Network and Velocity.Net Communications, a provider of high-speed internet service for homes and businesses in northwestern Pennsylvania.
Velocity had previously deployed Zhone’s MXK platform as a multi-access solution for business VoIP in Erie, Pennsylvania. They also had Zhone’s MALC(TM) multi-service platform in place, and so needed a solution that would work seamlessly with the network and not impact the service quality.
The extremely high density of Zhone’s 8-port GPON cards was cited as a major reason for the decision. Velocity Networks also indicated that the MXK’s 460 Gbps backplane, Terabit Switching capacity, and 28 Gbps uplinks were factors that helped played a role in choosing the provider.
Matt Wiertel, the Director of Business Development at Velocity, spoke briefly about the expanded relationship. He stated “Zhone offers the most flexibility with its fiber and copper cards, and we have been extremely pleased with the performance of our existing MALC. With the addition of the MXK, we will be able to serve a large segment of the Erie region and offer increased bandwidth to our commercial clients.”
Zhone Technologies is a major provider of IP multi-service access solutions and currently serves more than 750 network operators. You can find out more about Zhone’s MXK solution by visiting http://www.zhone.com/products/MXK
