OAKLAND, CA — Cooperativa Eléctrica San José, an Argentinian IPS, has selected Zhone Technologies' MXK and zNIDs to provide triple play services in the Buenos Aires district of San José, with intention of eventually expanding services to Santa María and Santa Trinidad. The installation makes this deployment one of the first pure triple play services over a gigabit passive optical network (GPON) in the local telecom cooperatives market.

Cooperativa Eléctrica San José was founded in 1961 and became a telecom operator in 1993. It is located in the south of the Buenos Aires province, and provides electrical and telecommunications services to business and residential customers in San José, Santa María and Santa Trinidad. The cooperative selected Zhone's solutions through its local reseller partner, Argentinian Communication Partner SRL (Commpartner).

Upgrading the Quality and Quantity of Services Offered
"The cooperative decided to make the leap towards upgrading quality and quantity of the services we offer and installed Zhone's solutions to provide voice, data and video services over IP to all our subscribers," said Diego A. Schmidt, general manager at Cooperativa de Electricidad, Servicios Públicos y Vivienda Ltda. "San José". "Zhone and Commpartner walked us through the analysis and implementation process, and we were very impressed with the selection of equipment options available. The deployment made us one of the first cooperatives to implement GPON technology in our market, expanding service options for our customers and giving us a more competitive edge."

"Zhone and Commpartner worked with Cooperativa Eléctrica San José to ensure that the right solution was identified to fit their unique needs," said Brian Caskey, chief marketing officer at Zhone Technologies. "Zhone's MXK platform is assisting the cooperative in establishing a reputation as one of the most forward looking telecom operators in the area, providing efficiency and reliability to its business and residential customers."
