SureWest deploys Allied Telesis gear

Roseville, Calif., independent telco SureWest Communications plans to report third quarter earnings tomorrow, but in advance of the financial news, the telco is making technology news. SureWest has approved multi-service gateways from vendor Allied Telesis for deployment in its network. The vendor's Intelligent Multiservice Gateway platform has been a part of SureWest's fiber-to-the-home network since 2004, and the telco now plans to upgrade to the vendor's latest model, the fourth-generation iMG626MOD.

SureWest Senior Vice President and CTO Bill DeMuth said the platform's support for the HomePNA home networking specifications and its remote diagnostics capabilities were keys to its deployment decision.
