C-COR Corp. to act as platform for Cable Bahamas Ltd.

C-COR.net Corp., a global provider of broadband communications products, software systems, and services, today announced that Cable Bahamas Ltd. has selected C-COR’s FTTmaX platform for a field trial of Fiber-to-the-Premise technology supporting voice, video, and data services to its Bahamian subscribers.C-COR equipment initially deployed in January 2004 includes an FTTmaX headend for the operator’s central office and optical network units (ONUs) that are deployed in the home or business.

Commenting on the initiative, Andre Foster, Vice President of Information Technology at Cable Bahamas, stated: “Cable Bahamas has been using fiber extensively for many years and provides a fully functional two-way network delivering video and high-speed data services. Deploying a customer premise device that can deliver the triple play of services - voice, video, and data - over a single strand of fiber on a passive network has always been Cable Bahamas’ vision. We are excited about working with C-COR to test and deploy this technology.”
