Baca Valley Telephone Reaches Outside Network Footprint on Mammoth NetworksSeattle (July 26, 2010) â€“ (BOOTH #39) Today from the OPASTCO 2010 Summer Convention and Tradeshow, Mammoth Networks reported that Baca Valley Telephone Company is leveraging Mammothâ€™s Layer 2 DSL to expand outside its network footprint. As a facilities-based aggregator of fiber and data circuits, Mammoth empowers Baca Valley with a variable-cost solution to deliver its telephony services in new markets.
Mammoth Networks is unique in that it aggregates multiple data services onto one platform, and delivers a one-stop shop for network outsourcing. It has built a multi-state, multi-LATA private network for the benefit of independent telephony carriers, and specializes in service within Qwest-served states.
Prior to its partnership with Mammoth, Baca Valley went the route of â€œfixed-costâ€ fiber to reach the Qwest area they served. With Mammoth, the company no longer needs a Qwest circuit or a sizeable upfront investment; it benefits from a low variable-cost solution.
In addressing its partnership with Mammoth Networks, Kim Atwater, Baca Valley Telephone Information Systems Technician, commented that, â€œWe wish the Mammoth offering was brought to us long ago. Mammothâ€™s services have not only saved us half of what we were paying before, but have been much more reliable. In addition, the support staff has been exceptional, so easy to work with - they really deserve a pat on the back.â€
â€We are proud to work with the Baca Valley team, and take great pride in our ability to help them expand into new markets with unprecedented ease and the variable-cost program best-suited to their size, scope, and budget,â€ said Mammoth CEO, Brian Worthen.
He continued, â€œWe have built our business on providing rural carriers and ILECS, such as Baca Valley, with the flexible resources they need to grow their business and achieve new heights in todayâ€™s evolving telecommunications marketplace.â€
Mammoth Networks provides meet-point circuits and long-haul private-line into other local exchange carrier (LEC) territories. Its core business is Layer 2 aggregation of Qwest's ATM DSL, covering each of Qwest's 27 LATAs. Mammoth also had the benefit of performing resale work for Qwest, giving it a leg-up in installation and troubleshooting when dealing with Qwest in its role as a single point of interface for service ordering, installation and operation.
Earlier in the year, Mammoth announced that its most recent fiber outlay was lit in Denver, which will be used to aggregate rural exchange connectivity from around the Rocky Mountains.
