TelePacific Taps Overture 6500 to Power Delivery of Enterprise Ethernet Services

Award-winning platform enables multi-service Carrier Ethernet solutions for leading business communication provider’s growing Ethernet Ecosystem

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Nov. 12, 2014 – Overture today announced TelePacific, one of the leading business communication solutions providers, has selected the 6500 multi-service Ethernet service delivery platform to add power and agility to its Ethernet ecosystem. The Overture 6500 is the industry’s only all-access CE2.0 switching and aggregation platform for business and cloud services, wholesale access, mobile backhaul and metro infrastructure applications. A Stevie Award recipient for “2013 Best Telecom Product”, the 6500 sets the standard for delivering performance-assured Carrier Ethernet over any access method, including fiber, E-Access, copper, SONET, and TDM, with full resiliency.

“We have the densest footprint in California and Nevada and cover all of Texas’ major metro areas in our Ethernet ecosystem,” says Dave Zahn, TelePacific’s SVP of Marketing, “and we’re focused on constantly enhancing our capabilities because businesses increasingly look towards Ethernet to deliver unified communications of all types. The Overture 6500 delivers leading-edge performance and flexibility.”

TelePacific offers business customers Ethernet options that can be tailored to their requirements, delivering bandwidth from 1Mbps to 10 Gbps over the most efficient access for their individual needs. That Ethernet ecosystem includes more than 400 Enhanced Ethernet-equipped LSOs, more than 50,000 fiber-served buildings and extensive Fixed Wireless networks in California and Nevada.

“The 6500 is a key component of our solutions portfolio.  It enables service providers to activate and assure new revenue-generating services more quickly and cost effectively,” said Mike Aquino, president and CEO, Overture. “TelePacific is a valued Overture customer and we’re pleased to play a role in expanding their Ethernet service offerings. Together, we are bringing ubiquitous Carrier Ethernet to the metro service edge with agility and operational efficiency.”

The 6500 is a key component of Overture’s Ensemble Open Services Architecture™ (Ensemble OSA™), an open platform for service automation and network virtualization.  Ensemble orchestration and control software activates the Overture 6500 to build connectivity in the OSA between end customers and virtualized network functions. This allows service providers to create connections among service end points and to virtual network functions, for an end-to-end service solution.
