APRIL 12, 2010 -- Amino Communications says it will be the long-term provider of MPEG-4 set-top boxes (STBs) to CDE Lightband, the broadband and electricity provider for the city of Clarksville, TN. CDE Lightband serves over 59,000 customers via an 960-mile fiber to the home (FTTH) network that has earned the city “broadband community” status (see "Clarksville, TN, hops aboard FTTH").

The network, supporting speeds of between 10 Mbps and 1 Gbps, was initially deployed to provide remote access monitoring for electricity meters -- but is now additionally used for a range of phone, broadband, and IPTV services. CDE offers 200 channels of digital television, an interactive programming guide, and video-on-demand service via its network. Currently, CDE Lightband has deployed nearly 10,000 Amino STBs to its customer base.

CDE Lightband’s Christy Batts, vice president of telecommunications, said, “IPTV plays an important role in extending the range of services we provide to our customers. Amino’s set-top boxes are proven performers and we look forward to working with Amino on the next stage of our deployment program.”
