OF Networks (OFN), a subsidiary of OKI group, has supplied Gigabit Ethernet Passive Optical Network (GE-PON) systems for the rollout of an optical LAN in the Tanah Datar region of West Sumatra, Indonesia. The deployment was carried out in partnership with the local Telecommunication Technology Committee (TTC) in Tanah Datar and is the first LAN deployment to GE-PON technology by a municipality in Indonesia, OKI says. The new infrastructure will support maximum data transmission rates of 1Gbps in rural areas. It is understood that TTC and OFN, working with the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MoCI), started work on the Tanah Datar fibre-optic network in 2009.
