BroadLight, ETRI to colloborate on XG-PON in Korea
FTTH processor vendor BroadLight says it has reached an agreement with Korea’s National Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) to collaborate on the standardized deployment of XG-PON1 (ITU-T G.987) in Korea.XG-PON offers 10-Gbps in downstream bandwidth versus the 2.5 Gbps of GPON. XG-PON1 supports 2.5 Gbps upstream, while XG-PON2 provides symmetrical 10-Gbps data rates.BroadLight and ETRI will use their existing XG-PON OLT and ONT technology for end-to-end interoperability testing. The test plan is based on efforts by FSAN to launch the first worldwide XG-PON interoperability event.“BroadLight’s collaboration with ETRI is an important initiative towards promoting XGPON technology in the Korean market”, said Youngsun Kim, vice president, Honam Research Center of ETRI. ”Collaborating with BroadLight, we can ensure XG-PON’s first commercial trial will be successful.““Aside from this being a great opportunity for BroadLight to contribute its knowhow in end to end PON solutions, it will provide us with further insight into the existing challenges for market requirements in relation to BroadLight’s own product development,” said Didi Ivancovsky, founder and vice president, carriers strategy at BroadLight.
Calix racks up two more GPON broadband stimulus projects
Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) brought its number of announced broadband stimulus projects to 69 with the revelation that Southeast Nebraska Communications, Inc. (SNC) and Peoples Telecommunications, LLC will use elements of the Calix Unified Access portfolio in their projects. Both companies plan GPON infrastructures with to support services as great as 1 Gbps using the Calix 700GE family of optical network terminals (ONTs).SNC will add to the number of Calix B6 Ethernet Service Access Nodes (ESANs) already deployed widely in its network. The service provider will use its $11.3 million broadband stimulus award, which consists of a $7.9 million grant and a $3.4 million loan (of which only a portion is for access equipment), to offer advanced broadband services to its rural customers outside of the town of Falls City, NE. The new footprint will address approximately 3,000 people, 50 businesses, and 20 community institutions."Access to robust broadband services has become a necessity, and we're excited to have the opportunity to bring fiber to the rural communities we serve," said Ray Joy, vice president and general manager at SNC. "With this award, we are implementing one of the nation's most advanced communications infrastructures with nearly unlimited capacity. This network will not only allow for remarkable expanded phone and internet services to our subscribers now, but also for new applications that our subscribers will desire in the future."Peoples, a new Calix customer, will deploy the Calix E7 Ethernet Service Access Platform (ESAP), thanks to a $7.8 million award, which consists of a $3.9 million grant and a $3.9 million loan (which again covers more than access equipment). The project is designed to bring high-speed broadband services to the rural areas outside of LaCygne, KS."Our broadband stimulus award will allow us to extend our fiber access network into the most rural areas of our LaCygne exchange, providing advanced broadband services to areas that otherwise would have been cost prohibitive to serve," said Kathy Billinger, CEO and general manager of Peoples. "We expect this network expansion will deliver significant new opportunities for the deserving citizens of these rural areas. In Calix, we've found an experienced partner who can help us bring these critical advanced services to our region."
USDA awards more funds for broadband service delivery
The award phase of broadband stimulus program ended last year, but the US Department of Agriculture (UDSDA) is still handing out money for broadband networks. USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack yesterday announced that 18 applicants will receive more than $103 million in funding for 23 projects to provide broadband services to unserved and underserved rural communities. The funding includes 18 grants and 5 loans.The projects represent a mix of access technologies, from fiber to wireless. For example, the Vernon Telephone Cooperative of Westby, WI, will receive a loan of $24 million to build a fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) network in areas outside the town. Vernon also plans to make other system improvements in several area exchanges. The grants are part of the Community Connect program, which funds rural, economically challenged communities. Funds can be used to construct, acquire or lease facilities to deploy broadband to community facilities such as schools and public safety buildings, as well as residents and businesses in the community. Each project requires a matching contribution and must serve an area where broadband is not available. The grantee must agree to provide local community centers in the selected towns with at least 10 computers which are accessible free for two years.Several service providers received multiple grants through the Community Connect program yesterday. Cable operator Crystal Broadband topped the list with five grants, followed by Wichita Online with three and Nexus Systems and Plateau Wireless, each with two.USDA says funding for all loans and grants is contingent upon the recipient meeting the terms of the loan or grant agreement.
