With consumers demanding Gigabit access speeds to enable them to stream high-speed content, and watch 4K high-definition television (HDTV) in real time, the strained Cable and Telco networks are struggling to keep pace with demand. Hence, the renowned Grant County Public Utility has roped in Allied Telesis to power smart cities.
A fiber network, based on active Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) Pt-Pt, offers Internet access speeds that are 100 times faster than traditional Multiple-System Operator (MSO) Cable and Telco xDSL, as well as Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON). “Our Gigabit solutions offer superior performance and feature capabilities in comparison to any other access vendor. This is validated by our customers who operate the fastest Gigabit networks around the world,” said Philip Yim, senior vice president, Global Program Management, Allied Telesis.
“Allied Telesis pioneered the active FTTx market with IP Triple Play service delivery, and is today the global market leader and preferred vendor of choice for wirespeed Gigabit networks. Grant County Public Utility is one of 75 customers who have deployed our solution and embraced a vision of ultra-high-speed Internet access,” added Yim.
Robert Bergman of Grant County Public Utility District said, “We operate an open-access network, and required an ultra-high-performance GbE solution. We selected the Allied Telesis Gigabit solution for many reasons, including its quality and performance, as well as the interoperability capabilities.”
