Fiber to the Smart-Energy Home

Overlapping with IBC in Amsterdam, the Fiber-to-the-Home show kicked into gear this week out in Las Vegas. And, timed to coincide with the event, Motorola announced that RST Communications has selected Motorola’s GPON technology for its fiber rollout in North and South Carolina. Although Motorola’s GPON deployments are stacking up, there’s a twist to this one that’s worth mentioning. In addition to standard voice, video, and data services, RST will be using its new fiber-to-the-home network to enable smart energy services. The green energy move will likely start with remote meter-reading to help consumers better monitor and control their home energy usage. It’s something we’ve seen WiMAX used for as well.
