Motorola Inc. has gained a new customer for its suite of Fiber-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network equipment. Washington-based telephone company Hood Canal Communications will use the equipment, which includes a new Motorola product, to provide voice, video and data triple play services to its Mason County customers.
Among the equipment Hood Canal will use are the QB5000 Optical Line Terminals (OLTs), which deliver triple play services across a passive optical network (PON), and the ONT1000 Optical Network Terminals (ONTs).
The company will also use a new addition to the QB5000 – the Integrated Voice Gateway, just released today. Motorola said the gateway would allow Hood Canal to aggregate voice services on the network.
The gateway is available via an expansion card and can be integrated into any QB5000 or QB3000 OLT. According to Motorola, the product can aggregate voice services into any Class 5 switch, with support for up to 1,344 DS-0s (56 DS-1s), enabling thousands of voice services using GR303 concentration and up to 1,344 voice services in TR-008 Mode 1 configuration. Motorola says the gateway also has complete call redundancy and is softswitch compatible, with the ability to migrate from Voice-over-ATM to H.248-based voice-over-IP.
“With the introduction of our new voice gateway, operators can now leverage our integrated solution for the delivery of voice services over fiber,” said Charles Dougherty, Motorola’s corporate vice president and general manager for network infrastructure solutions, in a release.
