Zhone Technologies has added Rochester Telephone Company to its customer roster. Rochester Telephone is a triple-play provider in Rochester, Indiana. The company will deploy Zhone’s MXK intelligent gigabit passive optical network (GPON) solution. ??After the completion of a two-month trial this February, RTC will use Zhone’s MXK solution to deliver high-speed Internet access, VoIP and video services to its customers.

“With over 6,500 access lines in our network today, we needed a fiber access vendor with superior scale and effective network management capabilities. We were also looking for a partner that could help us seamlessly upgrade our existing ethernet passive optical network (EPON),” said Joe McCarter, president of RTC, in a statement.
