Friday Roundup: MetTel, Comcast, Ribbon, Zayo

October 14th, 2022 by · Leave a Comment

Three contract wins and a new product launch before you go home for the weekend:

MetTel saw a bit of retail success this week. Their POTS Transformation solution was used to bring JCPenney’s legacy telephony systems into the modern era, converting 5,000 lines at 660 stores across the country. Many of those lines were alarms of various types, which have always made VoIP upgrades harder. The upgrade connects an existing analog system to cloud-based data and voice technology.

Comcast Business has picked up a bit of nonprofit business in Pennsylvania. Clearfield-Jefferson Drug and Alcohol Commission is using the company’s dedicated Ethernet, internet, and voice services for connectivity throughout their ecosystem. Like everyone else, CJDAC needed a better way to manage increasingly out-of-the-office connectivity of all types for its employees and customers.

Ribbon has won a contract over in southeastern Europe alongside partner Infosoft Systems. MEPSO, the electric utility keeping the lights on in the country of Macedonia, will use their technology for a network modernization project. The solution leverages Ribbon’s Neptune, Apollo, and Lightsoft solutions to improve their internal operations.

And Zayo has launched a comprehensive edge solutions portfolio. Leveraging the SD-WAN technology from the QOS acquisition alongside UCaaS, Security, remote access, and managed circuit aggregation, they hope to better address the enterprise market out at the edge of their infrastructure. And of course, Zayo already has quite an extensive presence at the edge in terms of fiber reach.
