CommScope FTTH Accepted for RUS
By| April 27, 2009
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development Telecommunications Program has accepted CommScope’s BrightPath fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) solution, enabling service providers seeking funding from the Rural Utilities Service to propose the use of BrightPath products in business plans and applications they submit for RUS grants and loans.
The BrightPath system is designed to work seamlessly with existing HFC networks, employing a tapped architecture that provides fiber connection from the headend/central office to the subscribers’ premises. It is designed for low-density housing and rural areas, with low signal loss of optical fiber and the reduction or elimination of active devices in the network.
