OTTAWA and BOSTON, March 14, 2016
BTI Systems, a market-leading provider of cloud and metro networking software and systems to colocation, content and service providers around the world, today announced that Granite State Communications (GSC), a New Hampshire telephone and Internet service provider, has leveraged BTI’s metro packet-optical networking portfolio to deliver unlimited bandwidth and capacity while reducing costs and complexity.
“We serve businesses and consumers in Southern New Hampshire as one of the earliest independent service providers,” said GSC Manager of Network Operations Sean Purcell. “Our customers depend on us to keep pace with their rapidly growing needs for on-demand and high-performance access to information and cloud services. As such, we have to ensure we deliver the highest levels of bandwidth and capacity. With the outstanding performance of the BTI portfolio, we have been able to quickly grow our network to almost unlimited bandwidth while reducing fiber costs by one-third. The BTI equipment paid for itself in less than 12 months. Additionally, BTI provided exceptional support through turn-up, ensuring we were able to achieve our goals quickly and efficiently.”
“GSC connects enterprise and residential customers to national and international resources, leveraging the most advanced technologies,” said BTI Systems Senior Vice President of Global Marketing Sally Bament. “Partnering with regional telecom and broadband providers, GSC has continued to be at the forefront of high-speed connectivity, offering customers a broad range of on-demand services. We are very pleased to be working with innovative providers like GSC and support them as they expand their network and their customer base.”
GSC has deployed the BTI 7000 Series and the BTI proNX Service Manager. The BTI 7000 Series was purpose-built to unify packet and optical service delivery into one platform for network-layer consolidation at the service edge. The platform integrates MEF Carrier Ethernet 2.0-certified switching, 10G WDM optical layer, and 2 Degree and 4 Degree ROADM Dynamic Optical Layer to simplify network deployment and operations. The BTI 7000 Series architecture provides GSC with the flexibility to mix modules to capitalize on new service opportunities, with a true pay-as-you-grow approach.
Leveraging the SDN-architected BTI proNX Control software, the BTI proNX Service Manager provides GSC with a comprehensive suite of service provisioning, monitoring and troubleshooting tools, enabling rapid deployment of new resources into the network through an intuitive graphical user interface, allowing for easy completion of a wide variety of day-to-day tasks across the entire BTI portfolio.
