AUSTIN, TX — EntryPoint Networks and Virtual Gateway Labs announced the availability of a complete Dynamic Open Access Broadband solution. Dynamic Open Access separates the physical infrastructure from service delivery enabling multiple service providers to compete over a common physical network for each resident’s services. With Open API’s anyone can become a service provider creating a wealth of services well beyond traditional triple play bundles. This community innovation platform drives local economic development and gives residents access to new services in areas such as telemedicine, smart grid, distance learning, emergency communications, smart homes, transportation, private clouds, the Internet of Things, and Smart City. No longer are the services available to consumers and businesses limited to the network company’s selections or to QoS and security lacking over-the-top (OTT) offerings.

A dynamic open access broadband network gives consumers an Internet-like service experience where services of all types can be selected and provisioned in minutes. The automated provisioning process also makes switching service providers seamless and instantaneous. The cities of Ammon, Idaho and Albion, Idaho are currently deploying a dynamic open access network based on this solution and others are beginning their journey.

ATC Deploys Dynamic Open Access in Idaho Cities
Ammon, Albion and Malad, Idaho, are part of the The Albion Telephone Company (ATC) Communications network and they are deploying the dynamic open access network framework. “Our interest in the EntryPoint and VGL solution has been to pursue technologies that would enable us to transition from our historical business model to a 21st century model.” said Rich Redman, President of ATC, “A next generation network that is able to continue to profitably deliver the communications services desired by our customers.”

ATC announced that they have completed their FTTH deployment in the Albion Exchange and are close to reaching the 80 percent deployment mark in its Malad exchange. This deployment is an edge-to-edge software defined FTTH network. ATC also deployed the Dynamic Open Access platform. The SDN and virtualization capabilities of the Dynamic Open Access platform gives ATC much greater visibility for troubleshooting and flexibility in managing their network. The platform also positions ATC for a future which they believe will require networks to dynamically accommodate new services including telemedicine, smart grid, distance learning, emergency communications, smart home, private clouds, the Internet of Things, and Smart City services.
