Internally at Motorola there’s been a lot of discussion around the uptick in cable interest in passive optical networks (PON). There’s plenty of life left in HFC networks, but there are places where fiber-to-the-home, and specifically gigabit PON rollouts make sense. Compton Cable, based in Canada, is deploying GPON to address the commercial services market. It’s Motorola’s first cable customer to move forward with GPON. (See recent Motorola GPON shipments update) It won’t be the last.
