KPU Telecommunications, a provider of residential and business communications services owned by the City of Ketchikan in Alaska, has deployed Infinera’s XTM Series to enhance broadband service connectivity for end-user customers.
Nick Walden, Senior Vice President, Sales, Infinera, said: “Residents of local communities like Ketchikan have the same growing broadband needs as more densely populated regions, and ensuring reliable, high-capacity transport connectivity is no less critical to local network operators.”
The XTM solution enables KPU to offer flexible optical and packet-based high-speed services while cost-effectively powering high-speed 200G optical transport over its 167-kilometer-long unamplified undersea fiber cable connecting the city of Ketchikan to mainland terrestrial destinations.
“The rich feature set of the Infinera solution combined with exceptional service and support laid the foundation for a strong technology partnership that is yielding benefits for all of our customers in Ketchikan,” said Ed Cushing, Division Manager, KPU Telecommunications.
The high level of flexibility of the XH800, an ultra-low-latency packet aggregation device within the XTM Series, enables KPU to support reliable 1 gigabit (1G), 10G, 25G, 100G and 200G transport connectivity to meet growing customer bandwidth demands now and into the future.Click below to share this article
