OTTAWA -- BTI Systems, the networking company that provides high-capacity, application-aware service infrastructure for the metro, announced today that it is providing an end-to-end solution from the network core to the business customer premise and cellular sites for South Slope Cooperative Communications, the largest rural independent operating company (IOC) in Iowa.

South Slope replaced its existing three-vendor SONET, DWDM and Ethernet infrastructure with a single, integrated solution from BTI, lowering CAPEX, OPEX and simplifying operations with a unified service-centric management system and SLA portal. Powered by BTI's recently-announced Dynamic Optical Layer, SLA Portal and Mobile Backhaul solutions, South Slope will accelerate delivery of high-value broadband services to support the continued economic development and investment in its rural Iowa service territory.

"As a key player in the Cedar Rapids - North Liberty - Iowa City Tech corridor, we are committed to providing our customers with the best possible service now and in the future," said Justyn M. Miller, CEO South Slope. "With BTI, we have installed the best network foundation to scale our network and support new broadband multimedia services. Broadband revenue streams are critical under the new FCC rulings. As a partner, BTI understands our business and we deployed our state-of-the-art network on time and on budget," he added.
