Alpheus Communications Opens New Dallas-Based Office

By admin, July 17, 2012 8:19 pm

This week, the management of Alpheus Communications?(News – Alert) has announced the opening of a new office in the Dallas metro area. The company – for those of you who are not familiar with them – describes its services and the expansion in the following terms:?

“Since 2000, America’s largest telecom carriers have relied on Alpheus’ fiber network to serve their Texas customers, and Alpheus is now offering the same carrier-grade, low-latency services directly to businesses. The strong DFW economy and thriving business community is driving the fast-growing need for high-quality networking solutions in North Texas. With a fully redundant and resilient core fiber network, Alpheus’ newly added enterprise services includes Metro Ethernet, MPLS, E-LAN and business-class voice services. All Alpheus services provide the performance and uptime guarantee required for mission-critical data, voice and video traffic. Alpheus’ multiple data centers with scalable connectivity to its fiber network and SSAE-16 compliant platform give businesses the secured, scalable and redundant infrastructure for disaster recovery and business continuity applications.”

While the company seems to have a handle on what businesses need, there is a real difference in the needs of businesses and the needs of consumers, so this expansion is a little bit of a stretch for the organization. The company appointed Justin Shively as division manager for the new Dallas office. In the release, put out by Layne Levine, senior vice president, enterprise and channel sales, for Alpheus Communications, the following was said about the appointment, “Justin has a proven track record in our industry, and he will be an extremely valuable asset to Alpheus’ aggressive growth strategy. Not only does Alpheus have the high-quality, high-capacity fiber network and metro reach that businesses are looking for, we are agile and responsive to our customers’ needs. We are a Texas company focused on serving Texas businesses.”?

Will the venture be a success? In the end, only time will tell.

Infinera’s DTN Platform Enables Midcontinent to Expand Optical Network Footprint

By admin, November 23, 2011 11:52 am

Infinera (News – Alert), a provider of digital optical networking systems, announced that Midcontinent Communications has utilized the Infinera’s DTN platform to expand its optical network footprint to cover newly acquired territories and the expansion has supposedly added 1000 miles in Minnesota to the existing network.

Midcontinent is a cable operator in the Upper Midwest region and provides cable television, broadband and digital home communication services to more than 270,000 residential and business customers in North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota.

The company is seeing growing demand for bandwidth caused by high-definition television, broadband Internet access, growing enterprise business and new service areas. And it chose Infinera for expanding its network for the simplicity, scalability and efficiency of Infinera’s DTN platform.

According to Infinera, its DTN remains the first platform in the world to combine the speed of optics with the simplicity of digital networking to deliver the world’s first WDM platform that includes a fully integrated, non-blocking, Colorless, Directionless and Contentionless Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Mux (ROADM (News – Alert)).

Designed with Infinera’s large scale Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC) and an integrated OTN switch, the Infinera DTN converts the network capacity into a pool of resources that can be tapped on demand.

With the DTN platform, Midcontinent would be able to offer an array of broadband services, including Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet, to customers quickly and easily. The company acknowledged that Infinera’s solution helped it scale its network efficiently.

Choosing Infinera’s DTN solution has allowed it to add capacity in days rather than months, reducing capital and operating expenses across its entire network.

Officials with Infinera claimed that cable operators, like Midcontinent, recognize the value of a platform that is simple to use and able to deliver services rapidly. The unique ability of Infinera platforms to quickly add capacity without complicated optical engineering has enabled operators to meet the stringent needs of a wide range of applications while also enabling a faster time to revenue.
