Victoria, B.C. – (October 13, 2021) – Vecima Networks Inc. (TSX: VCM) announced today that Wyandotte Municipal Services, based in Wyandotte, Michigan, and proudly providing internet, phone, and video services to the local community for over 40 years, has chosen Vecima Networks’ 10G EPON solution as the cornerstone of their new Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) offering over a number of other competitive FTTH proposals.

Wyandotte selected Vecima’s Entra™ 10G EPON solution to provide gigabit speeds and more advanced services to their subscribers, while also addressing the challenges of future-proofing their network by leveraging EPON’s proven 10G symmetrical performance.

Leveraging unique DPoE (DOCSIS Provisioning of EPON) features improve time-to-market, reduce operational disruptions, and provide best-in-class interoperable products enabling customers to avoid single vendor PON OLT and ONU solutions.
