ATLANTA -- Armstrong together with Aurora Networks, Inc., announces today that it has successfully deployed 100 Aurora Networks RFoG VHubs™, a key part of the cable company’s successful subscriber growth strategy through the deployment of RFoG technology. As the No. 1 optical transport provider, Aurora Networks’ unique VHub technology enabled Armstrong to cost-effectively maximize their network’s reach into rural areas, enabling the company to launch services to new subscribers and support their existing subscribers’ ever-growing demands for bandwidth-hungry services.

Aurora Networks’ VHub technology was first deployed in RFoG architectures in 2006. The VHub enables cable operators to overcome traditional limitations of an RFoG deployment; reach, fiber-intensive transport and no efficient route redundancy.

“Our RFoG deployments have reduced routine plant maintenance and energy bills, while significantly improving network reliability,” said Mike Giobbi, CTO, Armstrong. “With its flexibility and scalability, Aurora Networks’ VHub technology has provided us with the opportunity to deliver today’s advanced video and data services with the quality of service and experience our subscribers have come to demand. In addition, it provides a smooth transition to the deployment of future IP-based services.”
