Cox selects InnoTrans’ solution
InnoTrans Communications’ Chromadigm Series solution, which is on display at Expo, has been selected by Cox Communications Northern Virginia for the operator’s 1 GHz optical transport upgrade projects. Initial deployment of the Full Band Multi-Wavelength Analog Transport began in Q2 and is now being rolled out in full scale.
Being full band 1550, the Chromadigm technology positions cable operators to better utilize existing fiber assets. In addition to reclaiming up to 90 percent of HFC fibers, the InnoTrans solution also provides a targeted approach for expanded narrowcast services for varying distances in the HFC network.
“This technology allows Cox kick our great fiber network into overdrive,” said Janet Barnard, senior vice president and general manager for Cox Northern Virginia. “That means providing customers with even faster Internet speeds and access to even more content.”
