Mid-Hudson upgrades to 10G FTTH with DZS Velocity V6 OLT

Nov. 7, 2022
Mid-Hudson Cable is in the midst of an FTTH rollout that the service broadband services provider expects will reach more than 45,000 homes passed over the next year and a half.

DZS (Nasdaq: DZSI) says it will supply its recently unveiled DZS Velocity V6 optical line terminal (OLT) to Mid-Hudson Cable, which provides triple-play services in the Hudson Valley, NY. The broadband services provider will use the fiber-based fiber to the home (FTTH) system to upgrade its FTTH network with 10-Gbps capabilities.

Mid-Hudson Cable is in the midst of an FTTH rollout that the service broadband services provider expects will reach more than 45,000 homes passed over the next year and a half. This includes upgrades to new systems capable of multi-gigabit services that will pass over 45,000 homes and businesses. The company has provided services to Southern Albany, Columbia, and Greene Counties for more than 50 years.

“Mid-Hudson Cable is proud to make this forward-looking investment to raise our network to a whole new level and ensure that we will continue to lead the Hudson Valley area in performance, capacity, reliability, and value for many years to come,” said James Reynolds, CEO of Mid-Hudson Cable. “As our region becomes home to more and more professionals, families, and businesses moving in from New York City and other urban areas, we are pleased to provide them with connectivity levels that are superior to those they previously enjoyed. The state-of-the-art DZS technology we are deploying offers us not just symmetrical 10-gig service levels today, but also a clear path to 50-gig and even higher speeds going forward. These levels of performance will soon become essential as more people are increasingly using bandwidth-intensive, latency-sensitive services like online gaming, virtual and augmented reality, ultra-high-definition (UHD) virtual conferencing, and telemedicine across a growing number of devices.”
