ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Hitachi Communication Technologies America, Inc. (HCTA) today announced that the Hitachi Node+Zero Radio Frequency over Glass (RFoG) product is being used by Troy Cablevision, Inc. (Troy Cable) to provide Fiber to the Premises (FTTP) services to subscribers in the greater Troy, Alabama, area. FTTP services are currently being provided to approximately 1,600 business and residential subscribers, with continuing deployments in 2010 expected to reach an additional 1,100 customers.
“We began deploying the Hitachi Node+Zero RFoG modules about one year ago, delivering video, data and voice services,” said Dick Freeman, Troy Cable president. “We find they perform flawlessly, and the all-fiber network provides advantages for both business and residential customers, including uniform service quality, increased reliability, lower powering and reduced maintenance costs.
According to Michael Allen, Hitachi vice president of sales, “Troy Cable has steadily increased their use of the Hitachi Node+Zero RFoG solution, and it has proven to be an easy migration from their existing hybrid fiber coax outside plant to a fiber to the premises configuration. Operators like Troy Cable are realizing the economic and network efficiency of maintaining their existing RF Head End infrastructure while enjoying the benefits of fiber as a last mile architecture.”
