NTS selects 360networks for optical wavelength services in Texas


360networks, a facilities-based wholesale provider of
Private Line Transport, Ethernet, IP, and VoIP services, announced NTS
Communications has selected the 360networks Ethernet Virtual Private Line
(EVPL) Service in support of end user needs between Lubbock and Amarillo,
Texas.  In addition, 360networks also deployed optical wavelengths for NTS
from Lubbock to Wichita Falls, Texas.


NTS Communications, a subsidiary of Xfone,
provides integrated voice, data and video solutions to business and residential
customers in West Texas as well as seven additional states.


The company operates the region’s largest non-ILEC
telecommunications network, with a Fiber-to-the-premise (FTTP) platform that
supports its voice, video and data triple play offering.


“We needed capacity to key markets, protected
circuits, and competitive prices; 360networks’s unique coverage footprint in
West Texas gave us the markets we needed,” said Priscilla Rivas, Vice
President, Network Administration for NTS Communications.  


“Its EVPL service provided the pay-as-you-grow
solution we were looking for, with the wavelengths enhancing protection in
critical markets,” Rivas added.


The 360networks EVPL
service is fully mesh-protected for ubiquitous connectivity between major
carrier hotels, data centers, Internet exchanges, and neutral peering points
across the company’s entire 18,500 route mile footprint. 


“We are proud to expand our long-standing
relationship with NTS,” said Steve Cardwell, vice president of sales for


For customers like NTS needing to go beyond the major
metropolitan areas, we provide a one-stop shop with the full line of high
quality services to the markets they need, competitively priced, and backed by
the high levels of customer service we’ve built our reputation on,”
Cardwell added.


360networks’s EVPL eliminates the mileage associated with
traditional private line services.  Customers instead, pay a monthly
recurring charge per port in point-to-point or point-to-multipoint


Because 360networks owns and operates the network, its
EVPL customers benefit from a level of reliability and control not available
from shared network configurations. 


Combined with the company’s deep coverage to major
metros, as well as dozens of smaller markets, NTS decreases network complexity,
improves and optimizes capacity, and reduces costs.
