OAKLAND, CA — iTV-3, a local service provider in Central Illinois, is expanding its service offerings for business and residential subscribers by building a brand new 100 percent fiber optic network in East Peoria. This expansion, which will be fully managed by Zhone, follows two previous network expansions that used Zhone equipment in the cities of Morton and Pekin. Zhone's MXK, GPON and ZNID products will enable iTV-3 to expand its high-speed Internet and triple-play services to an additional 10,000 subscribers.

"After working with Zhone on successful fiber optic network deployments in both Morton and Pekin, IL, iTV-3 is extending its high-speed Internet, VoIP and IPTV video services to customers in East Peoria," said Levi Dinkla, vice president of iTV-3. "Reception to iTV-3's 100 percent FTTH network and local customer service was strong, which is why the company chose to expand to additional markets this year. iTV-3 selected Zhone's MXK platform for use on the newest fiber optic network because of the solution's proven ability to seamlessly integrate with current systems, while also providing opportunity for future footprint expansion within the market."

Zhone specializes in high-capacity FTTx multi-service systems, including MXK, designed to deliver cost-effective solutions for customers and provide high performance, while meeting ever-growing bandwidth demands. Zhone's MXK, a terabit access concentrator, provides density, switching capacity and throughput, as well as non-blocking capacity of up to 3,600 100 Mbps GPON subscribers or 360 1G Active Ethernet subscribers. The MXK platform also provides investment protection for the future by guaranteeing high-quality experience for residential triple-play and high-bandwidth business services over any FTTx infrastructure.
