Zyxel offers XGS-PON CPEs

Jan. 21, 2021
The line includes the PX7511 AX6000 WiFi 6 XGS-PON VoIP Gateway ONT, PM7516 XGS-PON VoIP Bridge ONT with 10G LAN, and PM7010 XGS-PON SFP+ ONT.

Zyxel Communications has launched a portfolio of 10G XGS-PON optical network terminals (ONTs). The line includes the PX7511 AX6000 WiFi 6 XGS-PON VoIP Gateway ONT, PM7516 XGS-PON VoIP Bridge ONT with 10G LAN, and PM7010 XGS-PON SFP+ ONT.

The company says the new XGS-PON ONTs meet the requirements of service providers as they roll out multi-gigabit offerings as well as support such emerging applications as UHD 8K video streaming, AR/VR, IoT, and smart home. The ONTs support OMCI and TR-069 for simplified remote configurations, upgrades, and management. Meanwhile, TR-181 issue-2 data model capabilities enable visibility into subscriber LAN networks.

The PX7511 AX6000 WiFi 6 XGS-PON VoIP Gateway ONT is the top end of the portfolio. It combines 4x4 dual-band WiFi 6 (11ax), MU-MIMO, and OFDMA technologies to deliver reliable wireless connections at rates up to 6 Gbps while significantly reducing dead zones. The PX7511 features one 10GbE LAN and four GbE LAN ports, two VoIP ports, and one USB 3.0 port. The ONT uses the same OPAL firmware trunk applied in the Zyxel CPE, offering a modular software architecture and open framework.

The PM7516 XGS-PON VoIP Bridge ONT with 10G LAN offers a symmetric 10G WAN and LAN interface. The ONT is applicable to both single-family and MDU and business applications. It can be added into a subscriber network as a Layer 2 ONT, which allows the subscriber to customize the network by connecting any Layer 3 device that meets their requirements.

The PM7010 XGS-PON SFP+ ONT leverages a compact size and simple bridge design to enable easy installation and deployment, says Zyxel. The PM7010 also supports the XGS-PON MAC function, which enables it to serve as a simple ONT that enables symmetric 10-Gbps data access in a point-to-multipoint (P2MP) structure. The PM7010 can be used as a Layer 2 ONT accessory in a switch or gateway to increase deployment flexibility and customization through the addition of Layer 3 devices as well.

“With the portfolio of XGS-PON products, Zyxel is offering the industry’s most complete 10G fiber CPE solution,” asserted Brian Feng, senior vice president at Zyxel Communications. “Service providers now have full flexibility in terms of form and features to offer symmetric, multi-gig premium services to their subscribers.”
