CVTC was recently awarded funding from the USDA Broadband Initiative Program (BIP). BIP grants serve to facilitate the deployment of new or improved broadband Internet facilities and equipment so that these new networks help to ensure sustainable community growth and provide the foundation for enhanced household and business broadband Internet services. CVTC is utilizing Federal stimulus funding to expand its network by providing advanced data and voice services to underserved rural users.
Leveraging Federal Funding to Extend Force10 Networks Footprint
Prior to deploying the S-Series, CVTC deployed several Force10 transport and access products for its primary inter-office fiber and microwave links.
The S50 provides non-blocking, line-rate switching to meet the performance requirements of the most demanding network, while including architectural features that optimize network efficiency. The compact, high-density S50 switch provides 48 GbE access ports and up to four optional 10 GbE uplinks in just 1-RU. The S50 runs on the modular Force10 Operating System (FTOS™) software, which delivers the inherent stability that is required in aggregation deployments.
