Optical Solutions Inc. (Minneapolis, MN) has announced a three-year, $4.2-million contract for fiber-to-the-home deployments with its ongoing customer, Rye Telephone Company (Colorado City, CO).

Rye, an independent telephone company serving 2,300 lines about 140 miles south of Denver, originally deployed Optical Solutions' FiberPath system in a remote 30,000 acre parcel known as Hatchet Ranch.

Under the latest agreement with Optical Solutions, Rye will extend its FiberPath deployment in rural Colorado to 3,000 homes.

Optical Solutions' FiberPath encompasses a central office, or head-end bay, which sends and receives signals to and from a residence-mounted node via a passive optical network. With the system, resident subscribers can receive up to six telephone lines, analog and digital video, and up to 10-Mbit/sec high-speed data scalable in 64-kbit/sec increments.
