CHICAGO -- IMC Networks, a leading manufacturer of optical access solutions for the LAN, MAN and beyond, today introduced a Fiber to the Home / Business gateway that enables service providers to drastically lower the cost of provisioning and delivering VoIP, high-speed Internet and IP Video services over direct, active Ethernet networks.

Compact and cost-effective AccessLinX CPE is ideal in connecting homes and businesses to Ethernet / IP backbone via the 100 Mbps WAN uplink.AccessLinX features two RJ-11 ports for connecting regular phones and fax machines to VoIP services. An integrated Ethernet switch offers three 10/100 ports for premises LAN equipment, or connecting set-top boxes for IP Video traffic. AccessLinX is available with a 100 Mbps fiber optic uplink, or with a copper uplink for deployment in apartment buildings and other multi-tenant installations with Cat 5 copper cabling.

“AccessLinX is targeted to competitive carriers, Greenfield developers and municipal broadband operators that are utilizing direct, active Ethernet infrastructures for delivering Triple-Play services,” said Jerry Roby, CEO of IMC Networks. “Open standards-based AccessLinX is compatible with aggregation and head-end switches from all major manufacturers. Using active Ethernet enables broadband providers to minimize capital investment in FTTP and achieve faster ROI by choosing network elements from different vendors, without locking themselves into one proprietary equipment provider,”continued Roby.
