Alcatel Supplies FTTH to Japanese Cable Company

Alcatel's FTTU (Fiber-to-the-User) solution is being deployed in Japan by a local cable TV operator and a municipal authority under projects managed by Itochu Cable Systems, a leading system integrator in Japanese cable TV, broadband and broadcast media. The two FTTU projects enable City Cable Shunan Corporation, a cable TV operator in the Yamaguchi prefecture and the municipal authority of the Kijimadaira town in the Nagano prefecture, to offer video and Internet services. Itochu Cable Systems is utilizing the Alcatel 7340 Packet Optical Line Terminal (P-OLT) and the Alcatel 7340 Home Optical Network Terminal (H-ONT), to build both networks.
