August 29, 2005 Minneapolis, MN -- Public Service Telephone Company of Reynolds, GA has selected Optical Solutions' FiberPath 500 GPON system for a greenfield FTTP deployment in a subdivision in Lizella, approximately six miles west of Macon.
Public Service Telephone says it looked at a variety of access solutions before selecting the Optical Solutions' GPON system. Founded in 1911, the ILEC serves nine counties, spanning 1,050 square miles of western and central Georgia.
"OSI best met our network needs," says Jim Bond, general manager of Public Service Telephone. "We've now had two other developers approach us about FTTP, so this trial-run could be the first of several fiber deployments for us."
Optical Solutions says its FiberPath 500 GPON system is fully compliant with ITU FSAN standards, and provides optimal bandwidth for delivering advanced voice, video, and data services, and for effectively future-proofing access network infrastructures.
"Optical Solutions has spent nearly a decade developing and honing a FTTP access solution that provides a natural migration path for carriers like Public Service Telephone," concludes Mike Dagenais president and CEO of Optical Solutions. "Our family of products for both central office and network-edge applications gives carriers the ultimate flexibility for transitioning their networks."
