Zhone's MXK and MALC platforms provide choices between a varied high bandwidth access technologies including GPON, Active Ethernet and xDSL for the delivery of Multimedia, Entertainment and IPTV services based on requirements and network topology of the service providers. Legacy DLC or NGDLC devices can provide voice and broadband data, but they are not suitable for video distribution. In order to offer video services, service providers must either provide multicast IP video over DSL with the existing copper network or deploy PON and then provide multicast IP video and/or RF video over it. MXK platforms support both RF and IP video over fiber, working seamlessly for PON or point-to-point IP video over copper.
