Cincinnati Bell has selected Motorola’s gigabit passive optical network (GPON), edge modulation, encryptor and encoding solutions for deployment in its fiber network. Cincinnati Bell’s fiber network will enable the delivery of personalized media experiences and support multiple high-speed broadband service tiers and advanced video services including HDTV, VOD and standard definition TV.

Cincinnati Bell serves subscribers across southern Ohio and northern Kentucky in single-family and multi-dwelling unit (MDU) environments. Already using Motorola set-tops, the service provider will expand its broadband and video services with the new high-capacity network based on Motorola GPON equipment and extend flexibility with the video headend solutions.

“In selecting a next generation video network solution, we looked for a partner with extensive fiber experience including the proven ability to serve the MDU market,” said Darrick Zucco, GM, Fioptic Services of Cincinnati Bell, in a statement.

Cincinnati Bell’s fiber network will run on the Motorola AXS2200 optical line terminal (OLT) and the 1 GHz capable Motorola ONT1400 single-family optical network terminal (ONT) and ONT6000 designed to serve multiple-dwelling units. These solutions support SCTE-55-1, or Motorola RF return path functionality, for integration with Motorola RF set-tops and headend equipment.
