BCI Deploys Cyan DWDM Austin - Houston

BCI, a partnership of 3 TLSN Member Companies:Brazoria, Colorado Valley and Industry, is proud to announce the delpoyment of Cyan Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) equipment from Austin to Houston.  The Cyan deployment now provides BCI and TLSN optical wavelength, Ethernet and SONET capabilities along the route. 

TLSN has turned up the first 10G wavelength to complete a San Angelo - Houston 10G customer connection as of June 30.  This new DWDM route provides TLSN the capability to provision broadband transport up to 10G from Houston throughout the TLSN Network. 

Joey Pearson, with Industry Telephone commented, "We can now offer pure Ethernet Services. In addition to pure Ethernet we have some slots available for OC48. We still can accommodate 10GE pipes and can add and drop lower speed Ethernet at any of our locations. The Cyan equipment is working great. They are a pleasure to work with and will help in any way possible. This equipment offers great cost savings and the ability to share resources to the Internet is a plus."

Based in Petaluma, California, Cyan has developed a family of industry leading transport products which enable service providers such as TLSN to expand into new revenue generating services, while simultaneously expanding the capacity of the network. Cyan's Z-Series of packet-optical transport platforms support the latest packet services, traditional SONET services, and optionally support Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) - which enables fibers to support multiple wavelengths for up to 40x more capacity. Cyan also offers innovative new software tools which reduce the complexity of planning and managing next generation networks for even greater performance and profitability.
