Transforming the one-way transmission into the interactive two-way transmission is the key to realizing the integration of telecommunications networks, cable TV networks, and the Internet, says a company representative. After deployment of the UTStarcom solution, the Jinan Radio & TV Network Center will be capable of providing: carrier-class broadband and multimedia service, including video-on-demand (VOD) and data broadcasting services within its cable TV network, to business and residential customers.

The two-way network transformation project will deploy optical access lines in two ways: EPON + LAN and EPON + EOC. The products it will use mainly include the OLT BBS1000+box, the machine frame style BBS4000, and ONU204i-h. The BBS1000 + is integrated EPON equipment with built-in L2/L3 switching functionality, supporting up to 8 PON links. Through FTTH / FTTB / FTTC optic networks, the BBS1000 + provides transmission with bandwidth up to 1Gbps for business and residential customers. The BBS4000 is carrier-class machine frame style EPON equipment; it supports up to 44 OLT EPON interfaces, serving a maximum of 2,816 GEPON subscribers via a 9U chassis (splitting ratio of 1:64 pm).
