Ottawa-based Meriton Networks Inc. has announced that Buckeye TeleSystem has launched a new triple play network infrastructure based on the Meriton Networks 6400 OTP (Optical Transport Platform).

A facilities-based provider of telecommunications services with 1,700 route miles of fiber, Buckeye TeleSystem, which is based in Toledo, Ohio, offers various services for voice, data, and video requirements, including local and long-distance phone service, Internet and intranet access, and video conferencing.

As part of its overall network transformation to meet the growing demand for broadband multimedia services, Buckeye TeleSystem will use its infrastructure to deliver converged voice and Ethernet data services to the Toledo Public School district, and to supply triple play services to the surrounding residential and business customers.

A sister company, Buckeye CableSystem, provides video services to Toledo schools via its hybrid fiber-coax network.

The new network links 60 administrative sites and schools throughout the greater Toledo area, delivering each location with high speed Internet access, TDM, and videoconferencing services.

It is also supporting the delivery of FTTH voice, video, and data services allowing Buckeye to roll out new services based upon customer demand.
