June 16, 2010
JUNE 16, 2010 -- Zhone Technologies Inc., provider of network access solutions for fiber, copper, and wireless broadband infrastructures, has introduced 18 new zNID optical network terminals (ONTs) for GPON and Active Ethernet deployments.

JUNE 16, 2010 -- Zhone Technologies Inc., provider of network access solutions for fiber, copper, and wireless broadband infrastructures, has introduced 18 new zNID optical network terminals (ONTs) for GPON and Active Ethernet deployments.

According to a company representative, these new additions to the zNID-42xx product line provide a 10x performance improvement over earlier models, while optimizing service provider’s ONT costs for a variety of deployment configurations.

Based on a wire-speed router architecture, Zhone’s ONTs deliver data throughput regardless of packet size to support demanding FTTx applications. All new models provide dual 1Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports, two or four voice ports with support for SIP, SIP-PLAR, and MGCP Voice over IP protocols, offering service providers a migration path from legacy to softswitch architectures without replacing ONTs.

The latest generation of HPNA chipset for home networking is optimized with flexible provisioning over phoneline and coax. Active Ethernet models provide an SFP uplink that supports a variety of Active GigE transceivers for greater deployment flexibility. GPON models are available with and without support for downstream RF Video or RfoG.
