In the past few years, the FTTx market has shown substantial growth both domestically and internationally, resulting in the need for increased MXK deployments.

Realizing this, Zhone Technologies (News - Alert), Inc., a global leader in FTTx network access solutions, has jumped on the deployment and management solutions bandwagon, powering over 3,000 MXKmulti-service access node platforms deployments around the globe.

The deployment of MXKmulti-service access node platforms will help address telecom operator requirements for high performance, scalability, flexibility and overall system reliability.

"According to our market assessment, Zhone is a steady top five FTTH network provider in all the markets they address," stated Teresa Mastrangelo, principal analyst at Broadbandtrends in a statement. "With recent updates to the Zhone FiberHome (News - Alert) and Zhone FiberCell portfolios and the introduction of Zhone EZ FiberService, the company is poised for continued leadership in the global FTTx market with complementary presence in the mobile backhaul market”
