LONDON -- Occam Networks®, Inc. (Nasdaq: OCNW) a leading broadband access supplier offering multi-service access platform (MSAP) solutions based on pure packet technologies, will play a major role at this week’s FTTH Council conference in Lisbon.

Occam is one of the United States’ primary suppliers of broadband access solutions and has developed a strong presence in the EMEA region since announcing its presence in the market last October. The company, whose equipment already features in some of the most high profile open access fibre networks, will appear at this week’s FTTH Council meeting in Lisbon just as the local market has seen the number of homes passed rocket to 1,150,000 from just 200,000 in December 2008.

Occam will be showcasing a range of products and solutions for broadband access, including the new ETSI-compliant BLC 6006 chassis which is a new deployment option for the BLC 6000 multi-service access platform that is optimised for small to medium density access networks, in the midst of transition to high capacity broadband.

The BLC 6006 incorporates Occam’s distributed intelligence architecture which allows each BLC blade to function standalone or in system level operation. As a result, service providers can customize any BLC chassis to accommodate any broadband technology all within a single operating system. The new chassis can accommodate up to six BLC blades in a 7 rack unit space and, when paired with the high-density BLC 6216 VDSL2 or BLC 6316 Gigabit Ethernet FTTP blades, can support up to 288 subscribers

“The real benefit of the BLC 6006 chassis for service providers is the opportunity to deploy high density broadband technologies in every area of their network,” said Russ Sharer, VP of Marketing at Occam Networks. “Service providers are eager to deploy intelligent, high performance solutions that exceed customer expectations and contribute to a rapid rate of return no matter where they are. The BLC 6006 allows them to do that”
