DTC selects Enablence for FTTH network deployment

Enablence claims that the current deployment using the MAGNM platform to serve 1100 homes

By CBR Staff Writer

US-based Delhi Telephone Company has agreed to a purchase order valued at over $1m with Canada’s Enablence Technologies for equipment to facilitate its FTTH network deployment.

According to Enablence, Delhi Telephone Company (DTC) has selected its Multi Media Aggregation Node (MAGNM), an all ethernet/IP network with active point-to-point fiber-to-the-premise, for all of its deployments.

Enablence claims that the current deployment using the MAGNM platform will serve 1100 homes; future phases are in the planning stages. DTC’s penetration rate has been 75% in past deployments.

Doug Edwards, general manager of DTC, said: Enablence’s MAGNM is clearly the leading platform in the market today, as it gives us a long term infrastructure that can change with our needs. For example, the ability to deliver either 100mbps or gigabit to the premise on a per subscriber port basis with no performance penalty, is a key future-proofing aspect that enables our strategic business plan.

Having 100mbps available per home has allowed our cable television affiliate to economically roll out high definition IPTV without compromising picture quality by bandwidth compression and rate shaping processing.
