Motorola Extends Cable PON Portfolio with Alloptic's RFoG

Motorola will resell Alloptic's Radio Frequency over Glass (RFoG) solutions as part of its cable passive optical network (PON) portfolio. The agreement between Motorola and Alloptic provides Motorola with exclusive rights to offer Alloptic's RFoG solutions to leading cable operators worldwide. The RFoG product line gives cable operators the ability to launch existing video, voice and data services over an all-fiber network supporting residential and commercial service applications where legacy voice and new IP-based services are needed.

Motorola fiber portfolio for cable operators already includes deep hybrid-fiber-coax (HFC) and fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) portfolios. With this agreement, Motorola rounds out its comprehensive Cable PON portfolio of hybrid and all-fiber access network solutions ready for cable operators.

"The strong interest in RFoG solutions by cable operators stems from their increased need to deploy new and operationally sensitive business and residential network architectures," said Dr. George Simmons, corporate vice president and general manager, Access Network Solutions, Motorola, Inc. "With this agreement, Motorola is now poised to enable customers' long-term all-fiber strategies with FTTH solutions that address their economic requirements and deployment timelines."
