Motorola Drops FTTN Line to Concentrate on FTTP

Motorola has offloaded its fiber-to-the-node (FTTN) product family to Communications Test Design Inc. (CTDI), effective July 2, in order to focus on fiber to the premises. Beginning immediately, CTDI will provide all sales, manufacturing, repair, and technical support services for the FTTN platform.

Motorola has been in the FTTN business since 1998, when its then-pioneering Multi-Service Access Platform (MSAP) platform became the first widely deployed video-over-DSL solution in the North American Telco TV market - the forerunner to the current IPTV. But the company decided FTTN was no longer a strategic product line.

"Motorola's business focus has shifted from legacy FTTN networks to new deployments of fiber-to-the-premises technology by Tier 1 telco customers around the world," says Joe Cozzolino, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Access Networks Solutions, Home and Networks Mobility. "This is an opportunity for Motorola's current FTTN customers to receive ongoing service and support and a growth path for FTTN and for Motorola to focus on next-generation FTTP technology."
