Aster Selects Motorola RFoG Solution to Extend Triple-Play Services and Increase Bandwidth.
Motorola Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today has announced that its Home business has been selected by Aster for a pilot commercial deployment of its RF over Glass (RFoG) solution. Motorola’s end-to-end RFoG solution will enable Aster to economically roll out an advanced fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network and deliver new ultra-broadband triple-play services.
All-fiber RFoG solutions have proven to be both cost effective and easy to deploy, providing cable operators another way to expand their service offerings while leveraging current network investments and maintaining existing back office operations, video infrastructure, and customer premises equipment (CPE).
“Motorola’s RFoG solution enables us to evolve our service offering and deliver new ultra-broadband services,. We selected Motorola’s solution as it offers a cost effective and straightforward migration path to a future all-fiber network and enables us to meet the ever increasing demand for rich media experiences and triple play services.” Wiesław Oleksiak, CTO, Aster.
Aster’s roll out of the network will include the deployment of Motorola’s SG4000 modular optical node for an RFoG application – which enables cable operators to extend their reach into previously unconnected areas and serve more subscribers.
“As consumers demand faster data connections and richer media services, cable operators such as Aster are turning to all-fibre networks for cost-effective service deliver,” stated Steve McCaffery, vice president and general manager for Motorola’s Home business in EMEA. “Our RFoG portfolio bridges HFC solutions and PON solutions and provides an economically responsible network evolution for cable operators.”
