New application and device usage is exploding at a torrid rate placing considerable pressure on aging network access infrastructure. Consumers of all ages are requiring more bandwidth in more places than ever before, pushing aging copper access to the brink of failure.
Zhone Fiber Access solutions offer service providers more bandwidth while reducing Total Cost of Ownership and ease of deployment. Zhone Technologies is a Global Leader in Fiber Access Transformation for Service Providers. Its products and solutions provide carriers multiple options for fiber access including wire-speed Active Ethernet and one of the only CE2.0 certified GPON solutions in the market today. MXK ensures a clear migration path to emerging next generation technologies and supports multiple data types, and protocols over copper or fiber while ensuring interoperable standards-based solutions.
Zhone is at the forefront of Technologies innovation, with large-scale global deployments of its high-capacity Fiber Access solutions based on MXK OLT and zNID ONT designed to provide high performance, cost-effective fiber access transformation for the operator's bandwidth requirements today and in the future.
GPON has become the preferred fiber access Technologies due to its technical and performance advantages far surpassing other PON technologies. In addition, GPON provides a smooth and cost-effective migration to next-generation PON technologies poised to drastically improve the user experience. Zhone's Fiber Access portfolio also supports Active Ethernet, providing 100 Mbps to 1Gbps point-to-point wire speed connectivity.
As part of the Zhone multi-service access portfolio, Zhone provides Fiber-to-the-Node (FTTN), Fiber-to-the-Curb (FTTC), Fiber-to-the-Building (FTTB) and Fiber-to-the-Premise (FTTP) solutions extending operators last-mile reach with high-speed Copper-to-the-Premise (CTTP) and wire-speed Ethernet-to-the-Premise (ETTP) connectivity enabling advanced broadband and multi-play services. Zhone's advanced FTTx solutions help to position Zhone for G.fast in the near future.
The solutions delivered in the Zhone access portfolio provide VDSL2, Active Ethernet and G.fast all in compact 1U form factors extending network reach and cost benefits that exceed those of competitive solutions. In addition, Zhone also delivers multi-service capability including integrated VoIP functionality. In the cases where fiber can be extended cost-effectively, Zhone portfolio of FTTx solutions provides Active Ethernet connectivity to enable wire-speed service.
Multi-service Access networks require an architecture that supports multiple data types, multiple protocols, voice, video and data while providing transport over both Copper and Fiber all within the same multi-service system while ensuring interoperable standards-based solutions.
Zhone's multi-service solutions based on the SLMS architecture has provided its customers with tremendous CAPEX and OPEX savings along with revenue-generating services delivering a clean transformation from Copper to Fiber. The MXK supports multiple fiber based access options including Active Ethernet and one of the only CE2.0 certified GPON solutions in the market today.
Zhone FiberCell, is a logical extension of Zhone's market-leading Fiber Access solutions, Zhone enables cost-effective mobile backhaul capabilities for its customers with a carrier-grade offering designed to address mobile operators increased bandwidth needs in today's data-centric service environment.
The Zhone FiberCell portfolio features alternative backhaul options that give operators the flexibility to choose between fiber access technologies, including GPON or Active Ethernet. Zhone FiberCell offers the most cost-effective and highest-performance solution for optimal backhaul transport.
Unified Provisioning combines all Residential Gateway and ONT (zNID) actions in a single Operational Support System (OSS) Gateway interface. There is no need for coordinating provisioning actions between two entirely different provisioning platforms.
Unified Provisioning is highly distributed with every GPON line card in the network responsible for provisioning only the zNIDs that are directly connected to it.
Unified Provisioning uses the same OSS Gateway Interface already familiar to the automation team. New Unified Provisioning extensions to the OSS G/W interface are fully documented. The automation team can start immediately for faster time to market.
Unified Provisioning will fully configure a newly installed (factory defaulted) zNID for all required services within minutes of the GPON link ranging. Much faster than the TR-069 approach.
