Wamego Telecommunications Co., a Kansas-based incumbent local exchange carrier, has tapped Optical Solutions Inc. to bring fiber-to-the-home capability to the Kansas River Valley.
The ILEC selected Optical Solutions' FTTH FiberPath 400 to meet the bandwidth needs of its customers. The FiberPath 400, which is based on a passive optical network architecture, will replace Wamego's existing copper networks in portions of Wamego, Kan. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Construction is slated to get underway in the sprint and last into the fall. HunTel Engineering, which has overseen other Optical Solutions' FTTH installations, will oversee the Wamego deployment. Once construction is complete, the FiberPath 400 will enable Wamego to deliver high-speed Internet access, hundreds of digital and analog television channels and multiple voice connections to its customers.
