South Slope CEO Justyn M. Miller said with BTI, South Slope have installed the best network foundation to scale our network and support new broadband multimedia services.
"Broadband revenue streams are critical under the new FCC rulings. As a partner, BTI understands our business and we deployed our state-of-the-art network on time and on budget," Miller added.
BTI Systems Optical chief architect Robert Keys said South Slope was looking for a vendor that could consolidate Carrier Ethernet, SONET aggregation and DWDM functions into a single, scalable platform.
