SEPTEMBER 2, 2009 -- Occam Networks Inc. has launched three new GPON optical network terminals (ONTs) designed to accelerate the transition to FTTP. The ON 2541, 2543, and 2544 ONTs are designed to offer a wide range of features to enable maximum flexibility to fit subscribers’ needs as well as the providers’ network architecture.
All of the ONTs are compatible with Occam’s BLC 6000 MSAP featuring the 6322 GPON OLT. The new ONTs will be available in late 2009.
The ONTs in the ON 2540 series provide a 2.5-Gbps downstream and 1.2-Gbps upstream GPON optical uplink and two POTS ports. The ON 2541 and ON 2543 also offer a Gigabit Ethernet option and the ON 2543’s HPNA port provides simple, cost-effective home device connectivity through existing coaxial wiring, Occam says. The ON 2544 includes four Fast Ethernet ports for a variety of premises network and ancillary equipment connectivity needs.
The ON 2541 and ON 2543 are designed to support Whole Home Networks, where an intelligent residential gateway acts as a service node for all network connected devices inside the home. The ON 2541, with its single Gigabit Ethernet subscriber port, and the ON 2543, with Gigabit Ethernet and HPNA coaxial interface, provide a service provider with a choice of media options for service delivery.
Working closely with the inventors of the technology, Occam says it has integrated into the ON 2543 the industry’s first implementation of intelligent bandwidth management over coaxial interfaces. To assure high quality of experience (QoE), Occam has also integrated troubleshooting and management tools for HPNA over coaxial cable.
All Occam ONTs feature patented IP Security Management (IPSM) that is designed to enable dynamic, “hands free” network security that ensures robust subscriber traffic administration, authorization, and accounting (AAA). They can deliver a suite of services including lifeline POTS using SIP or MGCP VoIP or GR-303, high-speed Internet, Ethernet private line, IPTV, and RF video. The new ONTs can be deployed in environmentally-hardened enclosures for outdoor installation and are compliant with the following standards: ITU-T G.984, ITU-T G.984.4 OMCI, TR-156, and TR-101.
