May 17, 2006 Hong Kong -- Huawei Technologies has unveiled a super-large capacity Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) system with up to 1-Terabit switching capacity at IEC's Broadband World Forum Asia 2006.

Huawei's SmartAX OFA5920 GPON system complies with ITU-T G984.1/2/3/4 standards and is the industry's first GPON access platform with Terabit non-blocking switching capability and fully redundant design, say company representatives. Only a GPON system realizing Terabit non-blocking switching can fully implement the high-bandwidth characteristics of fibers, they report. GPON enables refined service awareness, flexible service mapping, flexible quality-of-service (QoS), and dynamic bandwidth allocation (DBA) of 64-kbits/sec granularity. With the SmartAX OFA5920 GPON, operators can provide voice, data, and video services at a downlink and uplink rate of up to 2.5 Gbits/sec and 1.25 Gbits/sec respectively.

"The Huawei super-large capacity GPON solution provides abundant bandwidth, which not only helps operators address the requirements of existing services, such as IPTV and triple play, but more importantly guarantees an evolution towards future high-bandwidth services," contends Li Jian, vice president of Huawei's Access Network Product Line.
