Hitachi Telecom (USA) and Pacific Broadband Networks have formed a technology partnership to develop fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) solutions for HFC network operators. The first product from the collaboration, designed and specified by Hitachi, is the Hitachi Node+Zero RFoG module, a single-fiber FTTP solution that leverages existing headend and customer premises infrastructure. The Node+Zero module, introduced in June 2008, is transparent to existing DOCSIS and CMTS protocols and management systems, and accommodates RF headend and CPE combinations from virtually any manufacturer.

Both Hitachi and PBN are standards program members of SCTE, and actively participate in the Interface Practices Subcommittee (IPS) Working Group 5 discussions relative to the RFoG standards. The Node+Zero module is compatible with the RFoG standards initiative currently underway within the SCTE standards program.
