SEPTEMBER 14, 2010 -- Occam Networks has added the ON 2505 and 2506 GPON Optical Network Terminals (ONTs) to its intelligent ONT portfolio for fiber to the home (FTTH) and other optical access applications.

SEPTEMBER 14, 2010 -- Occam Networks (NASDAQ:OCNW) has added the ON 2505 and 2506 GPON Optical Network Terminals (ONTs) to its intelligent ONT portfolio for fiber to the home (FTTH) and other optical access applications. The two new indoor ONTs are optimized for deployment in single family residences (SFRs) and small-to-medium businesses (SMBs).

Features of the ON 2505 and 2506 Occam Networks cites include:

  • Support for bandwidth-intensive applications like on-demand video and gaming with four Ethernet LAN interfaces, and up to symmetric 1-Gbps speeds
  • Multiple options for IP-based voice service with configurations with either two or four voice ports
  • Flexible video support as the ON 2506 provides RF video delivery or IPTV
  • Delivery of business class services such as TLS and QinQ
  • Simple DC-power with AC power converter or monitored UPS options


“With the rise of new devices and multimedia applications in the home, indoor ONTs will be a growth market in North America in the next three years,” said Jeff Heynen, directing analyst for broadband and video at Infonetics Research. “Occam’s ON 2505 and 2506 gives service providers a great new option for bringing services into the home and accelerating the adoption of fiber-based broadband.”

Complementing the native IP and Ethernet architecture of the Occam BLC 6000, the ON 2505 and 2506 also provide service providers with operational expense and efficiency benefits, Occam asserts. Both ONTs are fully managed by Occam’s Optical Line Terminal (OLT), which the company says enables service providers to reduce the need for truck rolls. Service providers will be able to simply upgrade or reconfigure the ON 2505 or 2506 from the CO or NOC.
