Two gigabit FTTH projects were recently approved by the California Public Utilities Commission which will be partially funded with CASF monies. These projects will be built out by Race Communications in Kern County California and the total deployment cost for both totals appx. $26mm. A third Race project submitted to CPUC for deployment in Mono County is still pending approval and totals appx. $7mm.
The public summaries of both approved projects state they will be using a total of 28 Calix ODC-1000 FTTP Pedestal Cabinets and Clearfield 864 Panel Pedestal Cabinets (one of the largest CLFD makes) to deploy the fiber in the network. These projects should get underway in 2014.
