C-COR.net and Alloptic team to provide high-capacity PON system for the last mile

Oct. 22, 2003
22 October 2003 State College, PA Lightwave -- C-COR.net Corp. has signed an agreement with Alloptic Inc. that gives C-COR exclusive rights to market Fiber-to-the-Premise (FTTP) systems that incorporate Alloptic's PON technology to cable television Multiple System Operators (MSOs) in the U.S. and certain other countries, as well as other selected domestic and international market segments.

22 October 2003 State College, PA Lightwave -- C-COR.net Corp. has signed an agreement with Alloptic Inc. that gives C-COR exclusive rights to market Fiber-to-the-Premise (FTTP) systems that incorporate Alloptic's PON technology to cable television Multiple System Operators (MSOs) in the U.S. and certain other countries, as well as other selected domestic and international market segments.

C-COR's FTT maX is an end-to-end fiber solution that leverages the company's expertise in advanced optical transport equipment as well as Alloptic's PON technology and Gigabit connectivity to provide high-capacity bandwidth and a simpler, more efficient, and less expensive network access for transporting voice, video, and data to the home or business over fiber-optic networks. The FTT maX uses a PON approach to address the last mile from the service provider's central office or headend directly into business or customer locations--a local loop that is currently a bandwidth bottleneck between metro-core systems and the end-user.

By sending point-to-multipoint signals through a distributed topology of fiber-optic cables and passive splitters, PON technology taps into the higher-bandwidth capacity of fiber for the local loop, while using passive devices to eliminate the maintenance and installation costs of active electronics. The FTT maX has potential applications for a variety of service providers seeking revenue opportunities from new subscriber services while holding the line on costs--including MSOs, incumbent local-exchange carriers (ILECs), competitive local-exchange carriers (CLECs), overbuilders, municipalities, independent home builders, and utilities.
