Radio Frequency over Glass (RFoG) technology from ARRIS Group, has been selected by Galician fibre optic communications operator R to improve bandwidth provisioning, drive efficiency across its network and ensure legacy infrastructure can be expanded with fibre-to-the-premises RFoG extensions.

logorThe technology will be implemented from November by bcSistemas – ARRIS' reseller – after being chosen as the systems integrator following a successful trial earlier this year. R has selected a range of ARRIS solutions including optical network units, optical transmitters, optical receivers for RFoG, optical amplifiers, multiplexers and passives to build its offering.

"ARRIS's RFoG technology will enable us to deliver fibre to more of our network. This means our commercial and residential customers will see a dramatic improvement in service and overall experience," said Julio Sánchez Agrelo, director of the network division at R. "We are excited about this technology and its potential to reduce our operating costs and maximize our HFC infrastructure investment over the coming years, even as technology advances."

"With our technology, R can now offer a deep, highly efficient fibre network that brings the latest TV services and fastest Internet speeds into the homes of their customers," added Pablo Guaglianone, general manager of ARRIS Spain. "As service providers look to deliver next-generation content experiences, they need to deploy superior infrastructure that competes with established players. Our suite of fibre technologies has the power and scale to meet these demands."
