Regional Bytes: TCT, Adtran, Tombigbee, Calix, Accelecom, Alianza, FirstLight

September 20th, 2023 by · Leave a Comment

Three regional moves with the help of key vendors, and a couple of interesting executive hires:

Wyoming’s TCT has tapped Adtran to power broadband expansion into rural areas. They will be using Adtran’s Mosaic One SaaS solution and other technology to deploy gigabit services in areas of northwest Wyoming and southern Montana. TCT evolved from a rural telephone cooperative in Wyoming’s Big Horn Basin that stared back in 1956.

Calix has been busy down in Mississippi with Tombigbee Fiber. Tombigbee has been deploying community Wi-Fi using Calix’s managed Wi-Fi broadband platform. More specifically they have enabled 9 school football fields in support of the area’s Friday-night football traditions. The deployment already covers fields in Fulton, Mangachi, Mooreville, Saltillio, Shannon, and Tupelo, and next up will be Nettleton, North Pontotoc, and Pontotoc.

Alianza’s unified communications platform will be getting a workout in the southeast. Accelecom has launched its new Accelecom VoiceCloud product across its fiber footprint, enabling them to address the needs of enterprises with both connectivity and managed services. The deal is exactly the kind of thing Alianza targets, enabling a regional service provider to quickly deploy and scale voice services without having to reinvent the wheel.

And FirstLight has expanded its management team up in the Northeast. They have appointed Mike Constantino as Chief Operating Officer and brought in Lorenzo Leuzzi as Chief Revenue Officer. Both moved to Firstlight from Crown Castle, and Lightower before that. They join Jason Campbell, who was himself just brought in as CEO earlier this year.
