AUGUST 9, 2010 -- ARRIS (NASDAQ:ARRS) says that Trinity Communications, a cable operator based in South Pittsburgh, TN, has launched digital voice, video, and high-speed data triple-play services through an ARRIS FTTMax RF over glass (RFoG) all-fiber network to Marion and Sequatchie County, TN.

Major components of the RFoG deployment include the ARRIS CORWave II multi-wavelength forward transmitters, FTTMax RFoG Optical Network Units (ONUs) at the customer premises, and the TransMax RFoG Repeater for optical amplification of RFoG wavelengths. When completed, the deployment will offer triple-play services to approximately 3,000 homes and businesses, spanning over 200 miles of fiber-optic plant.

RFOG supports cost-effective DOCSIS-based triple-play services over an all-fiber network to businesses, community hubs, and residences in low-density areas due to the reduced outside plant maintenance and lower power consumption. It also provides a foundation for future technologies such as EPON.

"We selected the ARRIS CORWave and RFoG solutions because of their proven reliability, and to meet our capital and operational budgetary needs," said Trinity Communications President James Gee. "In our system, population density is low and spread out so the RFoG cost model and return on investment is very attractive to us. Once the backbone is in place, we can simply drop a fiber to the residential or small business customer, install the RFoG ONU, and they're set."
