Trinity Communications, a South Pittsburgh, Tenn.-based cable operator, launched digital voice, video and high-speed data triple play service via an Arris FTTMax RF over Glass (RFoG) all-fiber network to the counties of Marion and Sequatchie.

This is Arris’ first announced RFoG deployment, and it is involved in other global RFoG trials.
Major components of the RFoG deployment include the Arris CORWave II multi-wavelength forward transmitters, FTTMax RFoG Optical Network Units (ONU) at the customer premises and the TransMax RFoG Repeater for Optical Amplification of RFoG wavelengths. When completed, the deployment will offer triple-play services to approximately 3,000 homes and businesses, spanning more than 200 miles of fiber-optic plant, Arris said.
 “We selected the Arris CORWave and RFoG solutions because of their proven reliability, and to meet our capital and operational budgetary needs,” said Trinity Communications President James Gee. “In our system, population density is low and spread out, so the RFoG cost model and return on investment is very attractive to us. Once the backbone is in place, we can simply drop a fiber to the residential or small-business customer, install the RFoG ONU and they’re set.”
Added Larry Richards, Arris Access and Transport VP/Product Management, “Operators of any size can depend on Arris for converged voice, video and data solutions using high speed optical transmission solutions.”
