HORSHAM, Pa., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced that Medicine Park Telephone Company has selected the Motorola gigabit passive optical network (GPON) solution for its fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband delivery. The rural telecom operator will now be able to offer dramatically higher-capacity broadband services, including faster internet access and richer, more personalized media experiences.
Rural markets are increasingly at the new frontier for the most powerful broadband technologies. As a result, Motorola is leveraging a distributor relationship with Power & Tel to reach these often-underserved regions with a proven FTTH solution. Power & Tel is making it easy for telecom companies like Medicine Park to access Motorola's GPON technology, and Motorola, in turn, is providing a fast and efficient way for these providers to deliver new internet and television services. With a fully-integrated RF return path for video delivery, Motorola is helping Medicine Park upgrade data speeds while also introducing new video offerings that use Motorola's widely deployed line of RF set-tops.
"Motorola has an unparalleled track record in FTTH networks with customers large and small around the world," said Edward Hilliary Jr. of Medicine Park. "We chose to work with Motorola because of its technology and its real-world deployment experience. We've also been impressed with the way Motorola develops evolving technologies, making sure that the network upgrades we make today can support the demands and innovation of tomorrow."
"Medicine Park represents a growing number of rural operators eager to offer a wider set of broadband services to subscribers," said Joe Cozzolino, senior vice president, Motorola Home & Networks Mobility. "By providing a customizable GPON solution, we are helping companies like Medicine Park transition to the next generation of broadband and RF video delivery. Not only does Medicine Park benefit, but subscribers throughout its rural footprint also reap the rewards of faster Internet access and higher-quality video services."
Motorola's GPON portfolio includes the Motorola AXS2200 optical line terminal (OLT), the Motorola ONT1400GT single-family optical network terminal (ONT) and the Motorola ONT6000 for multi-dwelling units. Motorola's FTTP solutions inherently support SCTE-51 – or Motorola RF return path functionality – for easy integration with Motorola video headend and RF set-top solutions.
Motorola's Home & Networks Mobility business delivers fully integrated and customizable media solutions enabling operators to provide personalized, rich media experiences to their subscribers. As a global video leader in digital entertainment devices, digital and IP video headends and digital video processing, Motorola brings its video expertise to bear as operators – wireline, wireless, cable and telco – seek to evolve their networks for the future.
