Vecima Enables Faster, Better Broadband for Roome Telecommunications Subscribers in Oregon

  • Vecima’s Entra™ Remote MACPHY solution provides a fast, efficient, and cost-effective step toward Roome Telecommunications’ future broadband network in Linn County, Oregon
  • Roome Telecommunications selected Vecima as its partner to comply with The Secure and Trusted Communications Networks Act of 2019 in the U.S.

VICTORIA, B.C. – (June 9, 2022) Vecima Networks Inc. (TSX: VCM) today announced the deployment of its Entra™ Remote MACPHY solution at Roome Telecommunications, Inc. (“RTI”) a local telecommunications service provider in Linn County, Oregon. The equipment replaces a legacy solution, as directed by the U.S. Federal Government’s Secure and Trusted Communications Networks Act of 2019, and provides RTI an efficient, cost-effective path to a broadband network.

Ahead of a July deadline for replacement, RTI and Vecima quickly completed the deployment with no service or business interruption. Vecima’s easy-to-deploy Remote MACPHY solution proved to be a straightforward and timely solution to help RTI replace the equipment. RTI was able to leverage funds available under the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) $1.9 billion Secure and Trusted Communications Networks Reimbursement Program.

“RTI is happy to have chosen Vecima as its partner vendor,” said RTI General Manager, Eric Votaw. “Vecima provided an affordable solution and gave RTI the necessary support and expertise to implement quickly. Remote MACPHY will enable RTI to meet its federal obligation and also give us clear path to offering faster and better broadband in Linn County.”

“In telecommunications, we often talk about scaling up, but it’s equally important to be able to scale down,” said Hy Huynh, Vecima’s Vice President of Sales for North America. “Local service providers like Roome and communities like Halsey need to address network security concerns too, and we’re thrilled to be helping them accomplish that.”

The Vecima Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) product portfolio, recently recognized by the Dell’Oro Group as the North America market share leader in Remote MACPHY and 10G EPON Remote OLT solutions, is deployed by operators around the world.

The Entra SC-2D is a remote MACPHY node with high downstream and upstream bandwidth, resilient and flexible design, and increased capacity enabling higher service tiers including gigabit services. It is centrally managed and controlled by the Entra Access Controller (EAC), providing simple and intuitive configuration and management of both DOCSIS and FTTX network access nodes. More information about Vecima’s Entra solution is available at vecima.com/solutions/distributed-access.

With full support for all next-generation cable access technologies, high-value legacy services, and proven industry leading interoperability, the networks of tomorrow are deployable today.
