OAKLAND, Calif. -- Zhone Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZHNE), a global leader in FTTx network access solutions, today announced its influential partnership with SRT Communications (SRT) to use Zhone’s industry-leading MXK™ multi-service access node (MSAN) during and after the disaster relief in Minot, North Dakota, an event estimated to cost more than one billion dollars. Through carefully constructed plans and prompt reactions in time of need, SRT and Zhone restored phone and Internet service to nearly 2,100 non-evacuated customers who were served out of flooded service buildings.

“Communications are critical in times of disaster, and Zhone worked with SRT quickly and efficiently to coordinate a new MXK deployment to restore service for the 3,000 Minot area customers affected,” noted Shawn Grosz, Director of Network Technology, SRT Communications. “SRT has also begun the reconstruction of damaged permanent structures, which will utilize the MXK offering for consistent communication.
