There are several possible reasons for upgrading to an FTTH network, but they boil down to this: increasing data speeds and improving video services. That said, operators do not have to tackle both issues at the same time. An FTTH solution with an RF return path allows operators to increase data speeds while still maintaining existing RF equipment for video delivery.
Late last week, Motorola announced that Medicine Park is deploying Motorola’s GPON solution with fully-integrated RF return path. It’s another rural win for the Access Networks business, and Medicine Park will be using the FTTH network for faster Internet speeds while continuing to deliver video via RF set-tops.
From the press release:
“Motorola has an unparalleled track record in FTTH networks with customers large and small around the world,” says Edward Hilliary, Jr. of Medicine Park. “We chose to work with Motorola because of its technology and its real-world deployment experience. We’ve also been impressed with the way Motorola develops evolving technologies, making sure that the network upgrades we make today can support the demands and innovation of tomorrow.”
