Alloptic's RFoG Deployed in St. Kitts

The Cable of St. Kitts has selected Alloptic's RFoG equipment to upgrade its network and extend its advanced broadband service offerings to customers on St. Kitts.

The Cable provides cable television, voice and data services to homes and businesses on St. Kitts.

Two high end developments on St. Kitts are now leveraging The Cable's fiber-based broadband services, demonstrating how both FTTx and advanced Smart Home applications add value to their properties. At Sundance Ridge for example, the model home showcases advanced home automation via the ability to completely monitor and control all of the electrically-connected items in the house including remotely opening and closing of hurricane shutters.
"While St. Kitts primary industry is tourism, there is still great demand for high end communication services by both full time citizens and by visitors, many of whom expect and rely on access to high speed, high quality connections to the rest of the world," said The Cable's General Manager, Bill Ewing. "The Cable prides itself in providing not only traditional video, but also in providing exceptional voice, data, and specialized communications services."
