MAY 2, 2007 -- TXP Corp. (search for TXP), original design manufacturer of ITU-compliant GPON optical network terminals (ONTs), today announced the launch of a new 7200G family of mini-size, power-over-Ethernet-based GPON ONTs to telecom service providers worldwide.
The small size and ease of installation of these new ONTs (search for ONTs) makes them well-suited for operators deploying FTTP in multi-dwelling and single living units that are limited in space, say TXP representatives. The new models can be mounted indoors and require no tools to install. At one-quarter the size of current generation GPON ONTs, these devices are less intrusive, claims the company. Compact packaging, coupled with the benefits of remote powering with power-over-Ethernet technology, translates into lower cost and ease of installation for service providers, says TXP.
Today's announcement adds to TXP's iPhotonics family of fully interoperable, ITU-compliant GPON ONTs, which the company says are currently being deployed and in GPON trials worldwide.
The 7200G ONTs allow operators to deliver up to 1000 Mbits/sec of bandwidth to end users in a compact and simple-to-install package. The new line of ONTs initially provide a single Gigabit Ethernet port that supports triple-play IP-based services, including high-speed Internet, IPTV, and voice-over-Internet Protocol (VoIP). Multiple-port ONT models will be brought to the market over the next few months, says the company.
"Our new mini-size ONTs add to our growing family of ONT products for single family homes, multi-family dwellings, and businesses for both indoor and outdoor installations," reports Michael C. Shores, president and CEO of TXP Corporation. "We believe the addition of the 7200G line of ONTs strengthens the full range of capabilities that we offer and is perfectly timed with the accelerating worldwide roll-out of new fiber-to-home infrastructures needed to deliver triple-play services."
