RG Fiber equips Baker University with low-cost GPON fiber solution

RG Fiber, a Baldwin City, Kan.-based provider, is giving its first commercial customer, Baker University, a cost-effective method to take advantage of a fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) network by using a GPON-based architecture.

What is making the deployment cost effective is that RG Fiber is using what it says is a scaled-down version of a fiber hut that includes items such as a Calix GigaCenter chassis that has "grow as you go" capabilities. Unlike a traditional optical network terminal, the fiber is run directly into the premises, terminating at the GigaCenter.
