Medicine Park Telephone Company has chosen the Motorola gigabit passive optical network (GPON) solution for its fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband delivery.

FEBRUARY 4, 2010 -- Medicine Park Telephone Company has chosen the Motorola gigabit passive optical network (GPON) solution for its fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband delivery.

The rural telecom operator will now be able to offer higher-capacity broadband services, including faster Internet access and richer, more personalized media experiences.

Rural markets are increasingly at the new frontier for the most powerful broadband technologies, says a company representative. As a result, Motorola is leveraging a distributor relationship with Power & Tel to reach often-underserved regions with a proven FTTH solution.

Power & Tel is making it easy for telecom companies like Medicine Park to access Motorola’s GPON technology, and Motorola, in turn, is providing a fast and efficient way for these providers to deliver new Internet and television services. With a fully-integrated RF return path for video delivery, Motorola is helping Medicine Park upgrade data speeds while also introducing new video offerings that use Motorola’s widely deployed line of RF set-tops.

“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.”

“Medicine Park represents a growing number of rural operators eager to offer a wider set of broadband services to subscribers,” notes Joe Cozzolino, senior vice president, Motorola Home & Networks Mobility. “By providing a customizable GPON solution, we are helping companies like Medicine Park transition to the next generation of broadband and RF video delivery. Not only does Medicine Park benefit, but subscribers throughout its rural footprint also reap the rewards of faster Internet access and higher-quality video services.”
