10Gbps fibre broadband for homes and businesses

Salisbury is America’s first 10-gigabit city, with 10Gbps fibre available to every premises in the municipally.

The municipality’s Fibrant network supports up to 10Gbps services via point-to-point Ethernet technology, with a transition to next generation Passive Optical Network technology in 2016.

Fibrant rolled out 1Gbps services using the Calix E7-2 Ethernet Services Access Platform in 2014, but the increase in demand for bandwidth required an increase in throughput speeds.

Fibrant plans to complement the point-to-point 10Gbps technology with PON technologies (XGS-PON and NG-PON2) to deliver multi-gigabit connections to residents and businesses.
