Zhone Technologies Inc. (Nasdaq: ZHNE) delivers multi-service access network solutions to more than 700 innovative network operators around the world. The company today announced that Quebec CLEC Maskatel has chosen Zhone’s MALC 1U POTS/DSL platform as the provider of high-speed services to multi-dwelling units.
Maskatel selected Zhone’s platform because of its “superior interoperability” and configuration when compared to other platforms, helping to leverage the company to succeed in a competitive industry.
“Our business is evolving rapidly in a very competitive market space,” Donald Dupuis, president of Maskatel stated in the press release. “We needed a vendor with cutting edge abilities, based on a mature and stable platform that was price competitive and ready to go. We found Zhone to be the triple winner. The platform fits all of our needs right out of the box.”
The 1U MALC uses the most advanced processor speeds and chipset evolution to deliver voice and data services, and is expected to be an asset to Maskatel’s dwelling units. Steven Glapa, vice president of product management and marketing for Zhone, said the product’s features were compared with Maskatel’s needs to ensure a close fit.
“Maskatel is an ideal customer for our 1U MALC product design,” Glapa stated. “We did a lot of active listening before we delivered on the product and it’s paying off in real interest based on ease of install, value and feature set. CLECs and IOCs alike are impressed with what we’ve crafted and the price point. It’s not just a game of speeds and feeds, but of making the overall business fit.”
