PON (Passive Optical Networks)

What is PON?

Passive Optical Networking is a cost-effective last-mile technology to bring your customers high-speed fibre broadband. As PON is point-to-multipoint you are able to split one line up to 128 times with GPON and 256 times with XGS-PON thus comprising of little active equipment compared to traditional copper networking, GPON and XGS-PON can help keep costs low, reliability high and customers happy. 


The Optical Line Terminal sits at the head end of your network GPON asynchronously provides each line with up to 2.5Gbps down and 1.25Gbps up and XGS-PON synchronously provides each line up to 10Gbs. Through our mature partnerships with industry-leading vendors such as Nokia, DZS and Datacom we can always find the solution that conforms best to your requirements; from an 8-port pizza box to 14U scalable chassis. All our solutions are tested in-house so we can be confident of seamless integration.
