PON To The Rescue in Rural Communities


Service providers continue to face three major challenges in providing broadband services in rural communities.

  • They are under pressure from constituents to offer broadband for the "good of the community"
  • Operators are answering demands from within their own organizations to increase revenues.
  • They are challenged by the relatively higher costs of building a network in rural areas.

There are a variety of fiber-to-the-subscriber technologies from which to choose—Active Ethernet, WDM Systems, RFoG, GPON and EPON. If you are looking to solve the rural broadband challenge, read more about these technologies on the CommScope blog.
