SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -- Occam Networks® Inc. (NASDAQ:OCNW), a leading supplier of innovative Ethernet and IP-based loop carrier equipment to telecommunications companies, announced today that Foothills Telephone Cooperative has selected the company’s Broadband Loop Carrier system and remote terminal cabinets to replace an existing solution installed in eastern Kentucky.

“We wanted to expand our offerings by upgrading our broadband strategy,” said Lonnie Kelly, operations manager of Foothills. “After reviewing products from several equipment providers, we were convinced that Occam, based on their solid reputation and the flexibility and scalability of their technology, could assist us in accomplishing this goal.”

Foothills has purchased Occam remote terminal cabinets, Gigabit Ethernet transport ring equipment, BLC 6252-02 ADSL2Plus Blades and BLC 6244 ADSL2Plus Blades. The BLC 6252 will provide 48 ports of ADSL2Plus with Lifeline POTS on the same physical interface to deliver voice, data and video services. The BLC 6244 will provide 24 ports of ADSL2Plus with Lifeline POTS to deliver high take rate voice, data and video services in low-density applications. Combining the two blades will integrate subscriber DSL and POTS ports with Gigabit Ethernet transport capabilities allowing them to be 100% DSL equipped.

“We have a lot of experience with various access technologies and companies, being in the local, long-distance, data and cable TV business,” continued Kelly. “We feel the Occam product will help us turn up service faster and with fewer personnel than competitive products.”
