SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Allied Telesis, Inc. a global provider of IP/Ethernet access solutions and an industry leader in the deployment of IP Triple Play networks over copper and fiber access infrastructures, today announced a new deployment in Huntsville, Arkansas.

Madison County Telephone, an Independent Operating Company in Arkansas, has turned up their 14th node of Allied Telesis’ iMAP Multiservice Access Platform. The iMAP is deployed in redundant GigE rings delivering copper services today, with Triple Play services planned in the next phase of deployment.

Additionally Madison County is utilizing the iMAP’s capability to deliver legacy T1 services over Ethernet. Madison County is deploying the iMAP with the Nortel CS1500 SoftSwitch for voice services.

The iMAP was installed to replace Madison’s existing DSL network, and President Tom Shrum couldn’t be more pleased. “Our Allied Telesis’ deployment has been a perfect fit for our network needs. Its next generation technology is reliable, scaleable, and best of all easy to provision. Allied Telesis’ Network Management Solution (NMS) is second to none in its ability to provision, manage, and troubleshoot our network.”

“Madison is the latest in a series of recent new Allied Telesis iMAP customers who share a common enthusiasm of the NMS,” said Bill Allen, Vice President of Sales and Operations, Service Provider. “NMS is unparalleled in the market for its ability to manage all endpoints of a carrier network – CPE, gateways, customer ports on fiber, copper, or T1, Ethernet switches, and more. Today’s service providers have their plates full as their networks evolve, and the Allied Telesis NMS is an invaluable resource to assist them.”
