Alloptic, a global leader in the development of RF over glass (RFoG) and passive optical networking (PON) solutions for CATV, telecom, and private network operators worldwide, today announced that they have added 15 new RFoG customers this year. This brings Alloptic’s base of tier 1 through tier 3 MSO customers to 44. Listed among their new customers are Midcontinent Communications in North and South Dakota, NPG Cable in Missouri, and Allen’s TV Cable Service in Morgan City, Louisiana.

“Over the past six months, we have seen rapid growth in demand for our RFoG products,” said Shane Eleniak, VP of Marketing and Business Development for Alloptic. “The MSO market is increasingly interested in deep fiber solutions because of their low operating expenses and moreover, the strategic role of a single all-fiber network enabling additional residential and business services. Our customers are benefiting from years of field-proven RFoG expertise to reduce costs and improve network performance.”

“Cable HFC network operators need to consider opex factors as part of their competitive advantage,” according to Patti Reali, Gartner Research Director. “A single network, instead of separate networks will…improve their operational success. RFoG is expected to also deliver major improvements in powering of outside plant… as well as providing more environmentally 'green' solutions for operators.”

Alloptic was the first company to develop an RFoG product and it continues to introduce new technology to the communications industry, most recently with an RFoG-optimized return path receiver. Building on creative contributions such as Hybrid RF PON, temperature hardened ONT and OLTs, and native TDM over PON transport, Alloptic customers benefit from network innovations that deliver value to service providers around the globe.

In Australia there are a number of RFoG deployments, several of which Titan ICT consulting engineers have been involved in the design and deployment. It has enormous benefits over traditional coaxial based MATV systems, delivering superior quality reception and a substantially lower total cost of ownership.
