Bakersfield Apartment Community to Deliver FiberLAN

  • Qypsys
  • Zhone Technologies
OAKLAND, CA — Zhone Technologies, a provider of FTTx network access solutions and Qypsys, an infrastructure integrator, announced a new FiberLAN deployment with Fuller Apartment Homes for its 224 unit Park Square at Seven Oaks upscale apartment community currently under construction in Southwest Bakersfield, Calif. Through a strategic partnership with TE Connectivity, Zhone's equipment will enable the apartment community to offer its residents super-fast fiber optic internet service through a cost efficient and greener alternative, FiberLAN technology.

"Fast broadband access has quickly become a must-have amenity for apartment hunters today," said Andrew Fuller, president of Fuller Apartment Homes. "The availability of sophisticated applications and video services, made possible to residents at the Park Square at Seven Oaks community through this new network, will make this one of the most desirable communities in the area. Zhone's solutions have been adaptable to the unique needs of this apartment development and Zhone and Qypsys have worked hard to see that all our needs are met."

Outperforming Local ISPs
With the goal of attracting residents by having the fastest broadband services around, the owners of the new Park Square at Seven Oaks apartment community turned to Zhone's extensive portfolio of products and services. Zhone's MXK 198-10GE is being used in the clubhouse and a zNID-GPON-2424-NA will be installed in each of the apartments, empowering the complex to provide its residents with a less expensive and far higher-speed Internet package than the local service providers in the area.

"The use of fiber-based access networks has exploded across multiple markets in recent years," said Alan Bertsch, president of Qypsys. "The speed, reliability and security of these networks make them a favorite choice of government customers, healthcare and hospitality. The decision by the leadership at Fuller Apartment Homes to use this technology at Park Square at Seven Oaks is a great indication of their forward-thinking and commitment to delivering the best amenity experience possible to their residents."

Zhone's Fiber-based LAN is a high-performance, high density GPON-based Passive Optical LAN solution delivering high speed data, voice and video to multi-level, multi-unit commercial and industrial complexes, including hotel rooms, bandwidth demanding desktops and work-stations. It can be deployed in offices, rooms, factories or other harsh industrial environments, delivering comprehensive connectivity for any Local Area Networking requirement. Zhone was ultimately chosen for its small form factor OLT, which was a less expensive alternative compared to others on the market.
