Harmonic Inc.’s fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) video overlay and IP transport solutions have been selected by ComSpan Communications for its triple-play communications network.

With Harmonic’s offerings - which include MaxLink transmitters and amplifiers and FlxLink network interface units (NIUs) - the Oregon telecom can offer more bandwidth to its subscribers for voice, video and data services.

Harmonic's FTTP solution is an RF video overlay system for a passive optical network (PON) architecture that encompasses broadcast transmitters, optical amplifiers and a range of optical passive components.

Harmonic's FlxLink 1-Gbps and T1 NIUs are also utilized to distribute IP services across the network using the same fiber, the company said.

"With this implementation, we can offer higher-speed Internet, voice and an expanded portfolio of video channels to customers in rural communities where broadband access is not otherwise readily available," said Todd Richard, VP and CTO of the LTS Group of Companies, of which ComSpan is a part.
