August 10, 2005 Livermore, CA -- Alloptic, a provider of Gigabit Ethernet Passive Optical Networks (GEPONs), has announced that FreemanWhite, a consulting and design firm, has deployed Alloptic's access network platform in Givens Estates, a retirement community located in Asheville, NC. Givens says the platform is providing its residents with superior bandwidth for voice, video, and data services.
"Deploying the Alloptic access solution provides our communities with a truly future-proof communications network," remarks Alan Baldwin, CEO of FreemanWhite. "Working with Charter Communications for video content and data services and BellSouth for voice services provides our residents access to proven, name-brand technology."
"With a broadband optical infrastructure, the residents can enjoy ultra high-speed data communications for video conferencing with friends and family around the globe, or for sharing pictures and videos of their grandchildren," adds Toy Belcher, associate project manager for FreemanWhite. "In addition, it allows our facilities, physicians, and residents the ability to communicate and fully leverage the benefits that a broadband infrastructure provides for telemedicine applications. For our communities, a broadband infrastructure is a key component for quality of life."
Alloptic says its access network platform leverages a standard ITU PON architecture, while delivering a gigabit of bandwidth. According to the company, with a native ability to support traditional TDM voice over an Ethernet-based platform, the platform is able to provide telephone services while seamlessly supporting next-generation services such as IP HDTV.
