UTStarcom Holdings, a provider of interactive, IP-based
network solutions in iDTV, IPTV, Internet TV and broadband for cable and
telecom operators, announced the launch of its DOCSIS-EOC application (EOC
application), which is a standard connection product based on coaxial cable and
designed for the final 100 meters of connection between fiber optic cables and
users’ terminal, includes set-top boxes, telephones and PCs.
UTStarcom’s EOC application follows the Homeplug AV EOC
standard and integrates the connection feature of China’s State Administration
of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT)’s coaxial cable to provide a superior
quality connection. DOCSIS-EOC allows for 500 unique access points and provides
800Mbps broad width at the low end and 160Mbps broad width at the high end.
The EOC application is a component of UTStarcom’s EPON
solution which helps operators construct a sophisticated network as the
industry enters an era of smart grid digitalization.
UTStarcom was among the first
companies to execute large-scale deployment of EPON, and has achieved more than
7 million port applications in some of the most developed FTTH regions such as
China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, as well as regions like the United States, the
Caribbean, Russia, and others. In the China market, UTStarcom has already
deployed its EPON solution in 30 provinces.
SARFT is in the process of digitalizing and automating
the state grid network in order to facilitate the triple network convergence,
which serves a total of 187 million cable TV users in China.
UTStarcom recently announced that it has won an Ethernet
Passive Optical Network (EPON) contract
to strengthen Ningxia Electric Power Company’s integrated electric distribution
system and communication platform.
Since 2010, Ningxia Electric has accelerated the
construction of its integrated electric distribution system and communication
platform as the Chinese government spurs the development of smart grid networks
across the country.
