Emerson facilitates migration from copper to FTTH infrastructure

OCTOBER 5, 2006 -- The NetSpan FTTH portfolio allows customers to maximize their existing copper infrastructures while also planning for the future.

OCTOBER 5, 2006 -- Emerson Network Power (search Emerson Network Power) this week unveiled its NetSpan FTTH portfolio to further support the transition from copper to fiber networks, extending its presence in the telecommunications market. Growing customer demand for network bandwidth and the industry trend toward providing triple play services over fiber networks to consumers are key drivers behind Emerson Network Power's new offerings, report company representatives.

FTTH is the fastest-growing global broadband technology, with significant deployments underway in Asia, Europe, and North America. Emerson Network Power has been a leader in the copper space and is leveraging its existing relationships and understanding of the telecommunications industry to provide customers with the most cost-effective outside plant and telecom cabinet solutions from any single provider, says the company. Prior to the launch of NetSpan FTTH portfolio, network providers were required to use multiple vendors for each deployment.

"Emerson Network Power's fiber offerings are unique in that they are compatible with the older existing technology and the new fiber network, which makes the inevitable transition from copper to fiber easy and cost-effective," explains Ed Feeney, Emerson senior vice president. "For example, all fiber-to-the-home products are designed to be used with the copper network, but can be transitioned to fiber without incurring additional infrastructure costs."

Emerson Network Power offers a complete portfolio that simplifies the deployment of FTTH for network providers. The NetSpan FTTH portfolio allows customers to maximize their existing copper infrastructures while also planning for the future.

"The consumer and business appetite for broadband services is increasing from kilobytes and megabytes to gigabytes and terabytes, and existing copper infrastructure simply cannot accommodate this need," adds Feeney. "Our adaptive fiber solutions enable the telecommunications industry to move forward faster."
