Occam Networks®, Inc. (Nasdaq: OCNW) a leading broadband access supplier offering multi-service access platform (MSAP) solutions based on pure packet technologies, announced today that it has signed Maribor, Slovenia based Optisis d.o.o. as a system integrator and reseller for Slovenia and Adriatic countries including Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Kosovo, Albania and Hungary. The move is part of Occam’s EMEA growth strategy targeting select regions with growth in FTTP broadband.
As demand for increased bandwidth—from both residential and enterprise users— escalates, European network operators are selecting fibre technologies such as Ethernet and GPON as the infrastructure solution. This applies both to incumbents and alternative service providers in the region.
This demand fits neatly with Occam’s wide range of Gigabit Ethernet and GPON optical line terminals (OLTs) and DSL products from its award winning BLC 6000 MSAP. Complementing this broadband access platform, Occam also provides a comprehensive service management solution that simplifies network operations and subscriber activation. These systems will be offered, installed and serviced by Optisis, a widely recognised leader in the region for systems integration of fibre optic based broadband solutions.
“We are delighted that Optisis, a regional expert in FTTP system integration, is joining our growing EMEA reseller network,” said Russ Sharer, VP of Marketing at Occam Networks. “With established partners like Optisis, Occam can offer the Adriatic region the choice of world-class FTTP technology at a time when broadband is seen as a key to stimulating the region’s economic growth.”
“We see the partnership with Occam as very strategic for our FTTx business going forward,” said Optisis Technical Director and Chief Technology Officer Bojan Bozic. “Together with Occam and our other partners we can completely integrate systems incorporating fibre optic technology and give organisations throughout our region the opportunity to leap forward in terms of the services they can offer.”
The news follows Occam Networks’ announcement last week that its FTTP equipment is at the heart of the European flagship 100Mbps OAN - Scarborough Business Park - after Occam’s launch into the EMEA region earlier last month at the ITU World Telecom event in Geneva.
