Telecom Lead America: Aurora Networks has renewed its agreement with Videotron for next phase of network upgrades to Fiber Deep.
Videotron will utilize Aurora Networks’ full spectrum Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology.
Videotron initially implemented a Fiber Deep architecture using Aurora Networks’ broadcast/narrowcast overlay technology, in 2008, to upgrade its network to support the bandwidth demands.
As per the renewed agreement, Videotron will deploy Aurora Networks’ DWDM technology. Videotron will benefit from the Fiber Deep network including the operational benefits at a significantly reduced CAPEX.
“When we decided to implement full spectrum DWDM technology in our networks, as the multi-wavelength pioneers, Aurora Networks was the obvious partner,” said Daniel Proulx, chief technology officer, Videotron. “Based on our previous experience with the company, Aurora Networks’ technology and service go above and beyond our expectations and enable us to continue to grow and offer more premium services to our subscribers.”
“Videotron’s Fiber Deep deployment previously, along with their decision to implement additional technologies, speaks volumes for the quality of our solutions and customer support,” said John Dahlquist, vice president, marketing, Aurora Networks. “Aurora Networks continues to help Videotron provide its customers with the best possible service and experience.”
