Occam Networks Helps Cut Digital Divide in Pioneering Scottish Community Housing Co-operative

Occam Networks has supplied the BLC 6000 multiservice access platform with gigabit passive optical network capabilities as part of a contract won by its UK value added reseller Fibre Options to supply West Whitlawburn Housing Co-operative (WWHC) with an advanced fibre-based network.

This is the second major success for Occam in the UK market in as many months. It is also supporting Fibre Options at Scarborough Business Park which is England's first Open Access Network (OAN) and one of the first anywhere in Europe to offer bandwidth over 100 Mbps to its customers. The availability of such high speed broadband in one of the United Kingdom's most rural and remote areas has already won the local authority for Scarborough the European Commission's award as the "most enterprising town" in the UK, which was then followed up with the same accolade for the whole of Europe.
