GPON FTTH deployment contract from Rochester Telephone goes to Zhone Technologies

Zhone Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZHNE) says that Rochester Telephone Company, Inc. (RTC), a voice, video, and data services provider in Rochester, IN, will deploy Zhone’s MXK intelligent Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) equipment to enable triple-play services for local residences and small businesses with a fiber to the home (FTTH) infrastructure.

After the completion of a two-month trial in February 2011, RTC will use Zhone’s MXK gear to deliver high speed Internet access, VoIP and video services to its customers via GPON FTTH.

“With over 6,500 access lines in our network today, we needed a fiber access vendor with superior scale and effective network management capabilities. We were also looking for a partner that could help us seamlessly upgrade our existing Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) network,” noted Joe McCarter, president of RTC. “Zhone was the right choice for us not only for the scale they offer with the high density eight-port GPON Optical Line Termination (OLT) card, but also for the added optimal benefit of recurring savings realized with the Zhone EZ Touch Provisioning system.”

Zhone also will supply its zNID GPON Optical Network Terminals (ONTs).
