Wheat State Telephone deploys Tejas Packet Transport solution

Bengaluru (India), June 12, 2018: Tejas Networks [BSE: 540595, NSE: TEJASNET] today announced that Wheat State Telephone, a progressive rural carrier in the USA, has selected Tejas’ TJ1400 Packet Transport Networking (PTN) product to offer cutting-edge telecommunication services in south-central Kansas. Wheat State Telephone is a local telecommunications provider in Kansas and serves primarily residential customers while delivering services to select business customers.

Since 1950, Wheat State Telephone has been on the cutting-edge of telecommunications services. Wheat State service territory comprises two non-contiguous areas which poses a challenge in terms of offering quality services to their customers. However, Wheat State continues to deliver advanced network solutions including Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) services to their customers.
Randy Hoffman, General Manager at Wheat State said, "As a leading rural technologies provider in the state of Kansas, we seek to build networks that are reliable, scalable and cost-efficient. We selected Tejas Networks for their feature-rich packet transport products based on MPLS-TP technology that considerably simplified our network architecture and operations by minimizing routing overheads. Tejas’ MPLS-TP based approach offers a compelling alternative to rural broadband operators by delivering better performance and economics when compared to traditional router-driven models."
"Tejas has a deep appreciation of the practical challenges faced by rural service providers, having implemented many rural fiber-based broadband networks across the world,” said Sanjay Nayak, CEO and MD at Tejas Networks. “Tejas’ TJ1400 is a unique converged product that combines MPLS-TP based packet transmission services with GPON based FTTx access on the same platform.  This enables carriers to efficiently scale their networks while delivering next-generation residential and business services."
Harmeet Singh, Senior Vice President – North America Sales at Tejas Networks, said, "We are honored to partner with Wheat State in rolling out a world-class packet optical network in rural Kansas. TJ1400 is a versatile product in the converged packet optical (CPO) space and we will actively support the Wheat State team to unleash the full benefits of this platform as they expand their network footprint and service offerings in the region."
