ADC selects Grand River equipment for FTTH deployment

Enables Grand River Mutual to continue its migration to ‘next-generation’ networks

By CBR Staff Writer

ADC, a provider of infrastructure products for fiber deployments, revealed that Grand River Mutual Telephone, an independent telephone company providing broadband services across 48 exchanges in northwest and north central Missouri and south central Iowa communities, has standardised on ADC’s equipment to overbuild its existing copper network with Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH).

The first phase of the network upgrade, which began in April in Bethany and Princeton, Missouri and Leon, Iowa, is expected to be completed by summer of 2010. The FTTH rollout will continue in other communities on an on-going phased approach, the company said.

The company claimed that Grand River Mutual Telephone’s Bethany and Princeton, Missouri exchanges as well as the new central office in Leon, Iowa, which supports that entire exchange, feature ADC’s OMX splice cabinet and Next Generation Frame (NGF) which were selected due to the products’ high density, enhanced cable management and reduced floor space requirements.

ADC reportedly offers network infrastructure products for FTTX networks. The product portfolio offers indoor and outdoor environmental protection; cable management; cross-connect options; field-proven performance and reliability; pre-terminated and plug-and-play options; and adheres to quality standards.
