Vyyo Inc. has obtained Platinum vendor status from the National Cable Television Cooperative (NCTC), a hardware and programming buying consortium that represents more than 1,100 small- and mid-sized cable operators that serve a combined 14.3 million subscribers.
With Platinum status, Vyyo is considered a "preferred" vendor to NCTC members for its T-1 over coax and T-1 over wireless and spectrum overlay products. Its bandwidth expansion overlay is geared to extend spectrum to 3 GHz.
"With multiple commercial purchase orders already received and an expanding list of trials with NCTC members, we are pleased to formalize this partnership with the NCTC to better service this expanding customer base," said Vyyo COO Avner Kol.
"Vyyo's spectrum overlay technology is designed to allow our members to create the bandwidth necessary for the services their subscribers desire, rather than having service offerings dictated by available bandwidth," noted NCTC Senior Vice President, Hardware Mark Bishop.
