Valley Telephone Cooperative is making the leap to IP with plans to unveil triple-play services including IPTV in its south Texas territory.
The cooperative will use Pannaway Technologies’ “Service Convergence Network” IP-access system to 17 exchanges across 19 counties in south Texas.
The move is part of a major upgrade as Valley moves from a legacy asynchronous-transfer-mode and time-division-multiplex network to an IP/Ethernet grid to support traditional telephony, voice over IP, high-speed data and IPTV.
Valley also plans to extend these IP services to about 6,200 additional subscribers in surrounding areas.
And the new IP system will tap into “IP-PRIME,” an MPEG-4 satellite video-transport service created through a partnership between satellite systems provider SESAmericom, the National Cable Telecommunications Cooperative and members of the National Rural Telecommunications Cooperative.
