residential subscribers are transitioning to a higher quality media experience.
The scalability of the Zhone MXK platform and its ability to provide Gigabit
Passive Optical Network (GPON) connectivity in facilitating network and service
upgrades to FTTH has been demonstrated in similar broadband projects throughout
the United States.

Oklahoma Telephone Company to expand its existing CATV network and provide
advanced communications and connectivity to its residential and business
customers across their coverage area,” said Brian Caskey, chief marketing
officer for Zhone.

complexity of multi-service access and, as a result, has built the telecom industry’s
most comprehensive portfolio of scalable FTTx solutions.

Central Oklahoma Telephone Company’s specific field requirements, enabling
Zhone to provide optimum cost efficiency and maximum service differentiation in
the operator’s network in combination with the zNID Optical Network Terminals
(ONTs) that will be installed at the residence and business sites to support
individual subscriber service needs.
