C-COR becomes a 'PON' shop
C-COR.net Corp. has inked an exclusive deal to market Alloptic Inc.'s PON (passive optical network) technology to cable operators based in the U.S. and in "certain other countries."
C-COR will offer Alloptic's technology in conjunction with its "FTT maX" fiber platform. The combination will take a PON approach to last mile broadband networks designed to transport voice, video and data services.
C-COR noted that the FTT maX platform is targeted to cable operators, incumbent local exchange carriers, competitive local-exchange carriers, overbuilders, municipalities and independent homebuilders.
