Aurora Networks’ traditional HFC, Fiber Deep and RFoG solutions have won “product acceptance” from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Utilities Service (RUS) and its Rural Development Telecommunications Program for use by cable operators that receive RUS grants and loans.

The solutions from Aurora Networks are now part of the agency’s “List of Acceptable Materials” detailing products and technologies that can be utilized by companies seeking financing for the development or expansion of broadband infrastructure. The effort administered by RUS and its Rural Development Telecommunications Program provides loans that cover the cost of construction, expansion or acquisition of facilities that deliver broadband services to eligible rural communities.??

Mid-sized cable operators are expected to be key participants in the RUS program. A large number of these operators conduct business in underserved rural areas that are a target of the program’s funds.
