Zhone FiberHome Solution
Voice was the building block for circuit data, which quickly paved the way for higher-speed packet data. Today, broadband data connectivity is impacting our lives and activities in ways unimagined not too long ago. In hindsight, voice and data were major building blocks and catalysts for the other significant dimension – video delivery over any medium. The ability to converge real-time or stored audio and visuals into our daily lives, activities and communication has impacted our personal and business activities globally in inconceivable ways. Today, proximity is no longer a deterrent and information has become virtually viral.
Mediums like YouTube and Facebook have turned our world into a much smaller place and our lives much more transparent. Today, while new innovations and technologies are being embraced much quicker than in the past, an important paradigm change has occurred. In the past, there was a distinct trickle-down effect for introduction and acceptance of new ideas, products and technologies. Today, broadband data and video have enabled innovations to be readily embraced in any part of the world, whether developed or developing, almost simultaneously! There is no time-lag in idea sharing or product acceptance in any part of the world.
This, in itself, is the power of today’s viral age. Built on the solid foundation of next-generation broadband data and video networks, content and information can be made available real-time in any urban, rural or remote part of the world, turning our world today into a much smaller place.
With the introduction of Zhone FiberHome™, an extension of Zhone’s market-leading FTTx solutions, Zhone is now enabling high-speed broadband connectivity in places where broadband was not being extended. High-speed broadband connectivity is the basis for today’s information age and many governments mandate that it should be as available and omni-present as other basic necessities.
As part of the Zhone FiberHome portfolio, Zhone is providing new Fiber-to-the-Nodel (FTTN), Fiber-to-the-Curb (FTTC), Fiber-to-the-Building (FTTB) and Fiber-to-the-Premise (FTTP) solutions to extend operators’ last-mile reach with high-speed Copper to the Premise (CTTP) and wire-speed Ethernet to the Premise (ETTP) connectivity to enable advanced broadband and multi-play services.
The solutions delivered in the Zhone FiberHome rollout provide VDSL2 and Active Ethernet connectivity in the last mile in a 1U form factor to extend network reach and deliver cost-efficiency benefits that exceed those of competitive solutions. In addition, Zhone also delivers multi-service capability including integrated VoIP functionality. Zhone’s high-speed CTTP solution is based on VDSL2 30a and enables up to 100Mbps symmetrical connectivity in areas where fiber is cost prohibitive. In these cases, as an end-to-end solution, Zhone offers VDSL2 CPE and Central Office (CO) products to provide high-speed, long reach and low cost solutions for multi-dwelling units (MDUs), remote terminals and CO deployments. In the cases where fiber can be extended cost-effectively, Zhone FiberHome provides Active Ethernet connectivity to enable wire-speed ETTP connectivity.
