Cameron Communications taps BTI Systems to extend fiber network in Texas, Louisiana

Cameron Communications, which provides telecom services--including IPTV, video-on-demand services and broadband--to residents, schools, libraries, municipalities and businesses in Texas and Louisiana, has selected BTI Systems to help it offer enhanced services and increase its network by expanding its fiber-based network.

Cameron plans to use BTI's WDM "virtual fiber" to boost infrastructure and consolidate service delivery in 13 territories in Texas and Louisiana. The BTI 7000 Series-converging Layer 0 through Layer 2--with integrated Carrier Ethernet, multi-service optical, and WDM functionality simplifies network upgrades. Cameron can deploy a high-capacity, 10Gbps and switched Ethernet service infrastructure and collapse existing SONET OC-48 infrastructure onto the same fiber pair from a single platform. The packetVX, a modular component of the BTI 7000 Series, offers Cameron an integrated Carrier Ethernet-based approach to address bandwidth requirements for IPTV and video on demand.

"There is an accelerating trend to bring fiber-based services to rural and underserved communities," said Aleck Gilner, VP of U.S. Sales for BTI Systems. "Fiber-based services help create the environment for successful communities much like water, power and transportation have defined quality of community life for decades. BTI Systems provides the backbone for service providers like Cameron Communications to build a future-focused network today, bringing speed and performance to customers."
