CASSCOMM Enhances High Speed Fiber-Optic Broadvision Cable Delivery

Brings advanced fiber-optic solutions to support 11 counties in central Illinois

iPhotonix, an innovation leader for the fiber-optics-to-home technologies industry, announced today that CASSCOMM has selected iPhotonix to bring advanced fiber-optic solutions to support CASSCOMM, a leader in telecommunications serving 11 counties in central Illinois, with RF return technology for enhanced broadvision cable delivery.

“CASSCOMM is aggressively deploying fiber-optics.” Said Tom Allen, Chief Operating Officer for CASSCOMM. “We use several different technologies to accomplish this deployment. The iPhotonix solution was an exciting discovery for us since it allows us to offer video in areas where we do not have traditional DOCSIS cable plant. iPhotonix Ethernet return technology, where GPON is combined with our Switched IP Video, all High Definition Platform from Adara Technologies, will be used as we construct greenfield areas.

iPhotonix has been developing and commercializing a portfolio of products and solutions to help communication service providers such as CASSCOMM migrate to optical access networks in an easier, faster and more affordable way.

“People are increasingly consuming greater bandwidth with more devices, driving an accelerated demand for residential gateways,” said Jeff Mulqueen, deputy chief executive officer and vice president of sales and business development, iPhotonix. “With iVolve, we are pleased to provide CASSCOMM with the most advanced connectivity capabilities on the market for their customers.”

iPhotonix optical network terminal (ONT) and residential gateways integrate two RF return technologies, compatible with the two major types of customer-premises equipment in cable companies’ installed bases. These proprietary RF return technologies are an offering of the iPhotonix iVolve platform, which utilizes a complete and comprehensive array of networks, devices, terminals and distribution units and is the most advanced, fully certified, standard compliant ONT in the world.
