Aurora Networks is Selected by Videotron for Further Upgrades to its Network Architecture


Aurora Networks, the number one optical access solution provider for cable operators, today announces the renewal of the agreement with Videotron for their next phase of network upgrades to Fiber Deep. Videotron will utilize Aurora Networks' full spectrum Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology.

Videotron initially implemented a Fiber Deep architecture using Aurora Networks' broadcast/narrowcast overlay technology, in 2008, to upgrade its network to cost-effectively support the growing bandwidth demands of customers. To further evolve the network and to take advantage of the latest developments in multi-wavelength technology, Videotron will now deploy Aurora Networks' high-performance full spectrum DWDM technology. Videotron will enjoy all the advantages of a Fiber Deep network including the operational benefits, but at a significantly reduced CAPEX.

What Videotron Says

"When we decided to implement full spectrum DWDM technology in our networks, as the multi-wavelength pioneers, Aurora Networks was the obvious partner,” said Daniel Proulx, chief technology officer, Videotron. "Based on our previous experience with the company, Aurora Networks' technology and service go above and beyond our expectations and enable us to continue to grow and offer more premium services to our subscribers.”

What Aurora Networks Says

"Videotron's successful Fiber Deep deployment previously, along with their decision to implement additional technologies, speaks volumes for the quality of our solutions and customer support," said John Dahlquist, vice president, marketing, Aurora Networks. "Aurora Networks continues to help Videotron provide its customers with the best possible service and experience.”
