Goldfield understands the challenges service providers face when building out high-bandwidth service delivery in their markets

BTI Systems, a global supplier of microWDMTM solutions for the delivery of Gigabit services, today announced Goldfield Telecom has joined the BTI Systems Channel Partner Program. Goldfield Telecom, a leading value-added reseller (VAR) of telecommunications networking systems, will introduce BTI Systems' optical platforms to its customer base of 500 ILEC and CLEC service providers and enterprises across the United States.

"Carriers are running out of available fiber and need a cost-effective way to accommodate the explosive demand for high-bandwidth services driven by wireless multimedia, high-speed Internet, video and Ethernet Private Line applications," said Darrel Seaba, President, Goldfield Telecom. "By offering BTI Systems' solutions to our customers, Goldfield will enable the evolution from SONET to Ethernet by providing a way to multiplex multiple services onto a single fiber with a cost effective, scalable platform, both in the backbone and in the outside plant."

BTI's microWDM brings a carrier-grade, state-of-the art, compact and low-power consumption solution for the reliable delivery of multiprotocol transport and packet services in a single platform. With support for CWDM, DWDM, OTN and Carrier Ethernet, combined with a rich set of transponders and muxponders, BTI's new 7000 Series is a Packet Optical Edge platform purpose-built to cost-effectively transport HD Video, LAN and storage extension, SONET/SDH network consolidation and 4G backhaul, providing a complete solution for extending multiprotocol Gigabit services to the network Edge. The 7000 Series supports 16 channels of CWDM and 10G CWDM optics for 10GbE capabilities at unprecedented cost points. The company's 7000 Series is also environmentally hardened for Outside Plant (OSP) operations, meeting the Telcordia GR-3108 OSP requirement for extended temperature.

"Goldfield understands the challenges service providers face when building out high-bandwidth service delivery in their markets," said Pete Dale, Vice President Business Development, BTI Systems. "Focused on improving overall network capacity and services scalability through overlaying Ethernet on top of existing SONET networks, Goldfield ensures operators can meet existing demand and prepare for expected growth, at price points that meet their business requirements."
