Along with DZS, Tachus has also been awarded the 2024 Cornerstone Award for “Best Local Provider of the Year” by Broadband Communities, whose panel of industry experts determined the partnership between the companies to be a superior demonstration of outstanding customer service, innovative product packages and offerings and imaginative partnerships with its communities. With this commitment to outstanding performance, fast-growing Tachus now boasts more than 45,000 residential and small to medium-sized business (SMB) subscribers across its 150,000 homes passed footprint.

“We are proud to deliver the best broadband performance and quality of experience in our region to our rapidly growing customer base and boast among the fastest internet speeds in the region powered by DZS and its world-class fiber access technology,” said Hal Brumfield, Founder and CEO, Tachus. “The stability, flexibility, and capabilities of DZS solutions are second-to-none and their attentiveness and support make them an invaluable partner. As DZS continues to innovate, we plan to leverage their leadership to take our network to new levels, expand our competitive edge and take market share by delivering a superior broadband experience.”

DZS solutions that Tachus is currently utilizing for its network-wide upgrade include:

  • DZS Velocity V16 systems, the industry’s highest-density, industrial temperature 16-slot optical line terminal (OLT) chassis for hyper-fast GPON and XGS-PON access networks. Service providers can use the DZS Velocity portfolio to cost-effectively deliver XGS-PON broadband services today and scale up to 50G PON and beyond in the future simply by swapping line cards.

DZS technology has given Tachus a platform for excellence, and they continue to leverage this foundation to build a clear competitive edge and deliver disruptive results.”
