OTTAWA -- BTI Photonic Systems, a global supplier of microWDM networking solutions for the delivery of gigabit services, today announced Telepak Networks Inc. has selected its optical networking solution. Telepak Networks, a service provider of Internet, telecommunications, and network services in Jackson, Mississippi, is using BTI's microWDM solution to increase the capacity of existing fiber to deliver multiple streams of 10GbE traffic between major Telepak Network's sites.

Facing a relocation of its corporate office, Telepak Networks needed to upgrade its network to increase available capacity on backbone fibers. The necessity to accommodate projected growth and the increasing demand for bandwidth-intensive video, voice, and data service delivery, was key in Telepak's decision to deploy BTI's microWDM solution. The Netstender 2060 platform with DWDM Mux/Demux and 10 Gigabit Wavelength Regenerator capabilities will now carry Telepak's high-bandwidth traffic on existing fiber between five major sites in Jackson, Mississippi. For subsequent traffic increases, Telepak can add additional capacity on the same fiber ring by simply lighting up a new wavelength on the Netstender without any service interruptions.

"BTI's networking solution is a natural choice for Telepak Networks," said Tillman Rodabough, Director of Broadband Commercial Services, Telepak Networks. "We previously selected BTI for optical reach extension in earlier projects and were impressed by how reliable Netstender is and how easy it was to work with. Using the BTI microDWDM solution now provides us with the ability to easily scale out our network and support our growing customer base and rich bandwidth applications."
