Cox Business Services Selects IMC Networks’ FiberLinX Solution to

Speed up Deployment and Lower Cost of Provisioning Services to

Enterprise and Hospitality Accounts

IMC Networks, a leading manufacturer of fiber optic connectivity and LAN/WAN bandwidth management solutions for Local, Wide and Metropolitan Area Network applications, today announced Cox Business Services, LLC in Las Vegas has selected IMC Networks’ FiberLinX(TM) optical Ethernet platform for provisioning IP data services to enterprise and hospitality accounts.

Cox Business Services is an affiliate of Atlanta-based Cox Communications Inc.

Deployed in point-to-point topology over the MAN fiber optic infrastructure, the FiberLinX platform enables service providers to offer high-bandwidth MAN access and “transparent LAN” services cost-effectively. Featuring remote SNMP management and monitoring, easy rate adaptation and fault tolerant features, IMC Networks’ fiber optic connectivity solutions drastically increase the Operations, Maintenance and Administration (OAM) capabilities of Ethernet-based metropolitan fiber optic networks.

“IMC Networks’ FiberLinX solution offers Cox Business Services significant cost and time-to-market advantages over legacy SONET and ATM-based technologies,” said John Fountain, director of broadband engineering. “In addition to lowering the cost of provisioning the optical circuit, we’re able to speed up our response time by deploying IMC Networks’ remotely managed equipment at the point-of-presence and at the customer premises.

“The benefit from using Ethernet as an end-to-end transport protocol is streamlining the network design, and being able to offer our customers a familiar, Ethernet-based transparent WAN interface,” continued Fountain.
