Kirkland, WA –April 12, 2016 – XKL LLC, a leading provider of fiber optic networking solutions, announces its initiative to provide broadband solutions to rural communities throughout the United States. As the country continues to recognize the importance of Internet connectivity in underserved and low-income areas, XKL products are uniquely suited to provide high levels of broadband to schools and municipalities.
In March 2016, the Obama administration announced its ConnectALL program, which promises to deliver quality broadband technology to all Americans, noting access to Internet connectivity is a “path to greater opportunity.” To fund this initiative, the administration requests that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) reform a previous, $1.5 billion-per-year phone subsidy program to a national broadband subsidy that ensures low-income Americans can access the Internet.
With broadband usage continuing to increase throughout the United States, and with efforts in place that only underscore that trend, a cost-effective solution that allows for substantial bandwidth flexibility is needed. XKL products are expertly built to sustain these broadband efforts, and the company’s highly adaptable network topologies are able to service multiple facilities with just 1RU appliances. With ten-minute installation times and a simple, user-friendly interface, XKL solutions are ideal for organizations that do not have optical networking staff in place. Furthermore, XKL’s 10 channel, 10G appliances provide a flexible growth path that allow for ongoing increases in capacity.
“Founder and CEO, Len Bosack, engineered XKL products with the future in mind,” comments Chad Lamb, Director of Engineering for XKL. “Every network begins at Layer 1 and XKL appliances have the capacity to achieve ten years of uptime without having to take the system offline. Solutions that are built to last, plus a strategic pay-as-you-grow bandwidth solution, makes XKL products optimal for any organization, especially those without connectivity experience and with limited IT resources.”
“Connecting underserved regions is a priority for the United States, and XKL stands behind its products to assist in this effort,” adds Joe DePetro, Director of Business Development for XKL. “We are excited to work with rural dark fiber providers, as well as local telephone, cable and managed service providers to increase the amount of bandwidth they can supply to their customers.”
