Firecomms Ltd., a developer of high-speed plastic optical fiber (POF) transceivers and surface emitting lasers has become a member of OPASTCO (Organization for the Promotion and Advancement of Small Telecommunications Companies) to advocate the use of POF as a low-cost, high-margin medium for IPTV home networks and other enhanced service offerings.

“As rural telcos look to expand their service offerings into advanced
areas such as IPTV, these companies face connectivity and resource
challenges that are unique to smaller companies,” says Firecomms’
vice-president of sales and marketing for the Americas, Lawrence
Thorne. “As a leader in POF technology, Firecomms will be a resource to
help these companies reduce installation time, maximize profits in
installations with advanced services, and contribute to the reduction
in service truck rolls.”

“OPASTO is pleased to welcome Firecomms to the association,” says John
McHugh, OPASTCO technical director. “The company’s POF solutions to
in-home wiring provide OPASTCO members, who are now offering in-home
networking services, a new option for the connection of home network
components.”
