Zhone Speeds Up NineStar's Triple Play and Telecom Services

  • Zhone Technologies
OAKLAND, CA — Zhone Technologies, a global leader in FTTx network access solutions, announced a new GPON deployment with NineStar Connect, a utility cooperative offering advanced telecommunications services. Located in Greenfield, Indiana, NineStar used Zhone's MXK and zNID products to achieve higher HPNA speeds for its network. The company is also planning to deploy Zhone Unified Provisioning, which will enable network management and configuration from a single point, provide massive scalability, lower fixed costs and provide a significant reduction in zNID management traffic within NineStar's network.

Formerly Hancock Telecom and Central Indiana Power, the 2011 merger that created NineStar combined an electric company and a communications company, one of only two cooperatives in the United States that offer both communications and power services.

Zhone's products enabled more efficient communications for the cooperative, which currently offers broadband Internet, telephone, video and security solutions, as well as electric services. NineStar currently serves around 18,000 customers, with approximately 6,000 of those customers using services from both the communications and power divisions.
