Amid all the talk about Verizon’s financial bet in choosing to deploy fiber to the home (FTTH), I thought I’d highlight another FTTH deployment, and why it’s been successful to date. Back in September, I posted about how a small telco called Hotwire Communications had chosen to use Motorola’s gigabit PON (GPON) technology for its FTTH networks along with Motorola MPEG-4 encoders and IP set-tops. Since then, the marketing team has put together a video case study that is well worth watching. I try not to post too many marketing materials, but this video has actual deployment details as well as an engineer’s perspective. It’s only three and a half minutes. Take a gander.
