A passive optical network (PON) is a point-to-multipoint access network with no optical repeaters or other active devices. Unpowered fiber optic splitters in PONs enable a single optical fiber to serve multiple end-points where optical network units or terminals (ONU/ONTs) are located near end users. On the opposite side, there are optical line terminals (OLTs) located at the service provider’s central offices.
In recent years two major PON standards, Gigabit PON (GPON) and Ethernet PON (EPON) took a central place, and Tier-1&2 telecom operators all over the world extensively deployed E/GPON technologies. Ethernity Networks participated in several projects, providing products based on the company’s unique ENET platform, for OLT, and for Multi-Dwelling Units (MDU) in FTTP applications as well.
The newest of our products-under-development are directed towards 10GE/xGPON, already required by RFQs of different operators.
