iPhotonix, a pioneer in the design, development and manufacture of high quality, carrier class, multi-vendor, optical network termination devices has debuted its next-generation GPON Integrated RF Return Solution at TelcoTV this week.

iPhotonix continues to lead this space with the release of both indoor and outdoor units incorporating their (Non RFOG required) GPON Integrated RF Return Solution into the iVolve Series of ONTs. The iVolve Series is iPhotonix's Next Generation standards based ONT family, offering more than 40 ONT models with operability for over 19 different GPON System Optical Line Terminal (OLT) Systems.

This release represents a major step beyond the innovative technology iPhotonix introduced in 2008. “Helping operators leverage their RF asset while not compromising or limiting their delivery technology (GPON) is our goal,” explains Jeff Mulqueen, VP of Sales and Business Development. “Our GPON Integrated RF Return is different from other solutions because we've integrated a lot into the unit itself, making it a one-box solution at the customer premise and the least invasive option to deploy.”

When Hood Canal Communication, a Telco operator servicing Mason County in Washington state, went looking for a new RF Return Solution that could support their existing SCTE 55-1 network, they called on iPhotonix. Hood Canal needed a GPON Integrated RF Return Solution that could support interactive services such as program guide, pay-per-view, video on demand, interactive digital video recording, and digital ad insertion while incorporating seamlessly into their existing network. iPhotonix offered the iVolve 7354 RF Return solution, which has since become an integral part of Hood Canal's GPON RF strategy.

“iPhotonix “outside of the box” approach to RFR was intriguing. After a positive review from another MSO we decided to give it a try,” says John Oblizalo of Hood Canal Communications. “iPhotonix' ONT solution for RFR is brilliant. Their revolutionary product saved us time, money, simplified our network, and works perfectly. If you are doing RFR over PON you need to take a good look at iPhotonix.”

With the new iVolve series, iPhotonix renewed its commitment to delivering the industry-leading technology operators need to stay ahead of the curve. “Thanks to the technology being offered with the iVolve Series, Operators now have a wide range of ONT options to choose from,” continues Mulqueen. With a focus on cost-effective solutions and flexible installation options, operators now have more choices when it comes to deploying new services. “Our combination of cost reductions and state-of-the-art components truly creates limitless options for operators to deploy, making these solutions as versatile as they are innovative.”
