Occam Announces Gigabit FTTH Deployment in Alabama

New Hope Telephone Cooperative, which is headquartered outside Huntsville, Alabama, has selected Occam Networks for the upgrading of its entire service network to point-to-point (P2P) Gigabit Ethernet fiber to the home (FTTH) network. New Hope Telephone has purchased multiple components of Occam's Broadband Loop Carrier (BLC) system, including the BLC 6312 active FTTH Blade, the 6450 10-Gigabit Transport Blade and 2342 FTTH ONTs. This next generation technology upgrade is made possible through funding provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Rural Utilities Service program.http://www.nehp.net/
