OAKLAND, CA Grand River Mutual Telephone Corporation, Missouri's second largest independent operator, selected Zhone equipment for its new fiber-to-the-home network.

The point-to-point active Ethernet network, managed through Zhone's MXK platform, will give Grand River Mutual Telephone residential customers access to wire-speed gigabit connectivity, enabling multiple high-definition television channels, high-definition digital video recorder content and video streaming within the home.

"With more than 15,000 access lines spanning Northern Missouri and Southern Iowa, we needed a fiber access vendor with superior scale and effective network management capabilities," says Wendel Myers, general manager of Grand River Mutual Telephone. "The increased density, scale and performance provided by the Zhone MXK, and zNID ONTs address our network complexity and challenges. This new fiber network allows us to provide advanced communications and connectivity to our residential and business customers. The benefit for service providers like us is that a full range of delivery mediums can be deployed side by side in the MXK, which limits the cost of network upgrades and ongoing broadband deployments."
