OAKLAND, CA — Zhone Technologies, a leader in the fiber access market, announced that Neotel recently deployed Zhone's MXK and GPON ZNIDs, as well as Zhone's High Availability Management System (ZMS) to assist with network management in Johannesburg, South Africa. The deployment enables Neotel to continue delivering high speed services to its wholesale, business and retail customers at competitive prices. The platform also allows Neotel to offer a flexible range of extensive broadband products previously unavailable to its customers.

Neotel is South Africa's first converged communications network operator. It provides a range of value-added voice, Internet and data services for businesses, wholesale network operators and providers and retail customers. Neotel also delivers services that reduce the cost of doing business through the optimal use of advanced technologies.

"Zhone's GPON solution assisted Neotel in offering a new tiered service called NeoBroadband which provides a faster, affordable and more reliable broadband service in comparison to other offerings in the marketplace," said Sunil Joshi, MD and CEO of Neotel.

Extending the Life of Existing Fiber Assets
Due to the success of Neotel's Point-to-Point Ethernet solutions and the demand for fiber optic connectivity, Zhone provided a solution that reduces costs for Neotel and extends the life of its existing fiber assets in its access network. Deploying a GPON solution from Zhone means that Neotel does not have to dig trenches for additional fiber and can deliver high speed broadband services to its customers speedily, while also reducing costs.

"Neotel chose to deploy Zhone products because of its impressive range of ONT's, port density on the MXK, its management solutions and the ability to integrate into the company's existing Operations Support Systems and Business Support Systems," explained Brian Caskey, chief marketing officer at Zhone Technologies. "Zhone's services helped further enable Neotel to upgrade its broadband services, while also offering additional value to its customers."
