residential broadband markets from a single solution without sacrificing
quality of service across either set of applications.

conjunction with our existing broadband services and know that the service
level will remain high,” said Terry Schupp, network manager for Otelco

Otelco to utilize the web-based SLA monitoring tool and cell-optimized
wavelength service capabilities to ensure appropriate separation and provision
of each type of traffic as needed.
