Overture Networks (News - Alert), a carrier Ethernet solutions provider, will be powering innovative, multi-platform technologies to Puerto Rico’s mid-band metro Ethernet network.

Optivon, a telecom services, wireless, and competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) in the U.S. and Latin America, has deployed the company’s HN6100, HN400, and HN500 customer premises equipment (CPE) technologies.

With the multimillion-dollar investment into network infrastructure upgrades and enhancements, Puerto Rico’s network is delivering high-bandwidth native Ethernet and direct Internet access to wide area networks across Puerto Rico.

“The debut of Puerto Rico’s first mid-band Metro Ethernet network is a milestone for Optivon and our customers alike,” said Luis G. Romero, president and chief executive officer, Optivon, in a statement.

“The demand for dependable, ubiquitous, 24/7 access to the high-speed, high-bandwidth Ethernet service needed to power today’s always-connected lifestyle is continuing to accelerate. With Overture’s world-class technologies, we’re better able to address that growing demand and deliver the high-quality service our customers have come to expect,” Romero added.

Optivon’s network integrates technologies pioneered by Overture Networks. These technologies include the HN6100, HN400, and HN500 CPE. The modular, multi-service HN6100 is a flexible platform enabling delivery of any service via any media from any port or slot, including high-rate Ethernet over copper.

“We are delighted to add Optivon to our fast-growing global list of satisfied customers and partners,” said Kevin Sheehan, president, Overture Networks. “By deploying these award winning products, providers like Optivon are maximizing operational efficiency and service quality while still cost-effectively meeting or exceeding customer requirements.”

Overture Networks recently announced  it augmented its ISG 6000 multiservice carrier Ethernet edge aggregation platform by adding 10.1 release of MaestrOS software. Overture Networks’ ISG 6000 platform facilitates service providers to reach more customer locations using any combination of wholesale Carrier Ethernet or legacy TDM-based access technologies while bypassing complex and expensive edge routers.
