Business strategies for wireline operators are shifting at an incredibly rapid pace. These operators are under more pressure than ever to develop new revenue generating streams of business while working under a constant directive to control opex and minimize capex.
Over the past three decades, Westell has built strong relationships with our wireline operator customers, developing solutions that enable them to efficiently deploy services to the end user. Today, Westell is widely known as a trusted partner to these operators. Whether it’s designing a customized product, creating a solution that will increase the operator’s efficiency, or meeting tight deadlines to ensure a project is deployed on schedule, wireline operators can rely on Westell to get the job done.
Westell has been providing wireline service operators with solutions for T1 and DS3 termination for decades. Widely known for the original SmartJack™ network interface unit (NIU), Westell is developing new products that meet the changing needs of wireline operators. For operators handing off Ethernet service in addition to, or instead of, T1, Westell’s eSmartJack™ is an Ethernet extension device with the same simple plug-and-play design of the SmartJack. Westell eSmatJack takes advantage of the already deployed and installed Westell mountings used to house Westell T1 SmartJacks or Adtran's HDSL cards for a low cost and simple installation to convert T1 services over to Ethernet.
To ensure their electronic equipment is housed in a weather- and tamper-resistant enclosure for outdoor applications, wireline operators have relied on Westell’s continually expanding line of NEMA4-compliant Boxer cabinets. These actively cooled, compact and lightweight cabinets are available in a variety of sizes and are also utilized in Westell’s Custom Systems Integration (CSI) Services. Westell will provide complete cabinet-based integration solutions including systems engineering, assembly and testing of all cabinet contents specified by the operator.
Westell’s line of power distribution products can be used throughout the wireline operator network. Fuse panels are often an overlooked detail in the network. Wireline operators choose Westell power distribution products to take advantage of highly engineered designs that allow them to save money and can be delivered quickly.
Westell also continues to offer a variety of copper and fiber connectivity solutions including fiber temination drawers, enclosures, mountings and panels.
The challenges facing wireline operators today are unprecedented. However, working alongside Westell as a trusted partner, operators are uncovering new ways to increase efficiency while providing the same level of quality service their customers continue to expect.
