Fujitsu 1FINITY platform enables cost-efficient, future-proof broadband capacity

Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc. and Power & Tel today announced that the New Lisbon Telephone Company has successfully deployed the Fujitsu 1FINITY™ Switch platform and Virtuora® Network Control Solution to deliver ultra-fast internet connectivity throughout East Central Indiana.

New Lisbon Telephone Company, and its subsidiary New Lisbon Broadband and Communications, provide high-speed fiber, DSL and wireless internet, as well as digital video and telephone services to residential and commercial subscribers in more than a dozen Indiana communities. Driven by exponential internet bandwidth growth, the provider chose to upgrade their legacy fiber network to 100G speeds, meeting capacity needs now and well into the future.

The 1FINITY S100 Switch and Virtuora Network Control Solution are ideally suited to meet New Lisbon’s needs, offering the ability to quickly add more high-speed bandwidth without significant capital expenditures. Moreover, the efficient deployment configuration of just one rack unit (RU) means minimal space and power requirements for New Lisbon, as well as an easy evolution path to future capacity as needed.

“This significant investment in our hybrid fiber and fixed wireless network allows us to achieve our commitment to deliver ultra-fast connections to our subscribers,” said John Greene, CEO, New Lisbon Telephone Company. “The combination of high performance, simplified network operations, affordability and small footprint made the Fujitsu 1FINITY and Virtuora solution an extremely appealing choice for our network upgrade.”

“We firmly believe our customers deserve a partner that they can rely on for the right material at the right place at the right time – every time. Our goal is to connect our customers with the best possible products and solutions that are cost-effective and enhance their business,” said Jennifer Sims, chief executive officer at Power & Tel. “We are thrilled that we could help New Lisbon in the deployment of the 1FINITY solution.”

“As demands for greater speed and connectivity continue to escalate, New Lisbon required a cost-efficient infrastructure solution to remain competitive,” said Annie Bogue, head of sales and marketing, Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc. “With the modular approach and minimal footprint of the Fujitsu 1FINITY platform, New Lisbon can benefit from increased capacity and pay-as-you-grow scalability, allowing them to offer enhanced services with operational flexibility that speeds time to revenue.”
